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.

New meth clean-up law (Hawaii)

A new law requires the health department to come up with a plan on how to respond to contamination from meth-amphetamine labs.

Seventeen makeshift labs were shut down in Hawaii last year. The residue from the chemicals used to create crystal methamphetamine are very toxic.

A quarter of the time, children live in those homes.

"Methamphetamine covers everything in a methamphetamine lab. It covers what they chew, it covers what they put in their mouths, it covers the carpets it covers the draperies, it covers everything and that gets into small children," says Honolulu City Prosecutor, Peter Carlisle.

Another bill expected to be signed soon allows law enforcement to "bill" drug users for the clean-up of illegal meth labs.
