This is dedicated to Travis Holappa who was kidnapped, tortured and murdered on July 25, 2004 in Northern Minnesota. This was all due to meth. I am Travis' mother and I wish to make this devastation turn into a better thing by educating and exposing the truth about meth, the dangers, and the deadly consequences it brings about to individuals and communities.

I want to do what I can to educate people about what is going on around the world with the meth problem. I want people to know about it BEFORE they even get the idea to want to try it. It is a dangerous drug and will ruin your life as well as all those who love you. I am on a mission on behalf of my only son, Travis.

Police Investigate Possible Meth Lab (Pennsylvania)

FBI and state police were investigating what appeared to be a meth lab bust on the city's east side Tuesday. Officials are tight-lipped about the investigation, but neighbors say they aren't at all surprised the home is finally getting some attention.
Neighbors who live near 617 Perry Street, in Erie, say they're relieved it's finally being investigated.
They say they've been worried about it for years and believe it housed drugs and other illegal activities.
The home is just one block away from an Erie middle school. Kids probably walk by every day. Now FBI and police are investigating what could have put these children and neighbors in danger...a possible methamphetamine lab.
Meth is a dangerous drug that can cause explosions.
Neighbors say a man in his fifites lived in the home, where drugs seemd to be a problem for years.
One neighbor who didn't want to be identified, said, "We've noticed a lot of traffic. People in and out of the house all day and all night."
But Tuesday FBI and police were the ones goin in and out, removing items from the home.
Hazmat was on the scene and one neighbor says a gas company also came out early in the day to shut off the gas.
This neighbor also knew the man who lived in the home, saying, "We got along well together, didn't have any problems, but kind of a strange duck."
The neighbor says he never had a problem with the home's resident, but was afraid of the crowd he drew into the neighborhood.
Many of the neighbors agree it's a relief a potential problem is being investigated. Now they hope the street will soon be a much quieter one.
