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.

OHSU pits science vs. scourge (Oregon)

Meth - The university wins a $5 million federal grant to run a lab that studies the drug and combats its power

Oregon Health & Science University is running meth labs -- ones, however, the U.S. government is glad to support.

The school this month won a National Institutes of Health grant to form a new Methamphetamine Abuse Research Center, exploring everything from which genes spur meth use and addiction to whether prescription drugs can help users kick the habit. The school should get about $5 million over five years, supporting about 20 scientists at OHSU and the Portland Veterans Affairs Medical Center, a partner in the project.

Part of the money will pay for statewide outreach programs that aim to stop children from trying methamphetamine, and to help users find treatment and possibly join human trials.
