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.

Washington, Oregon and Idaho join forces against meth

KENT, Wash. -- Washington, Oregon and Idaho are joining forces to crack down on methamphetamine, partly by tracking sales of some key chemicals, Washington state Attorney General Rob McKenna said.

The newly formed Pacific Northwest Pre-Cursor Chemical Committee will focus on monitoring sales of anhydrous ammonia, red phosphorous and hydriotic acid, which are used in manufacturing the illegal and highly additive stimulant, McKenna said.

The three states also plan to coordinate health and education programs to aid children and families hurt by meth and other drug abuse, he said.

McKenna outlined the program Wednesday during a visit by John Walters, director of the White House Office of National Drug Policy, to the Pediatric Interim Care Center, a program in this suburb south of Seattle for infants going through withdrawal because of drug abuse by their mothers.
