DEATH * BY * METH

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.

Children's Meth

The Ugliest Drug Marketing Scheme Ever



Children's Meth


Checked this on Snopes. It is true.


http://www.snopes.com/horrors/drugs/candymeth.asp

A very scary thing is going on in the schools right. There is a type of crystal meth going around that looks like strawberry pop rocks. It smells like strawberry also and it is being handed out to kids in school yards in AR.

I'm sure it will make its way around the country. Kids are ingesting this thinking it is candy and being rushed off to the ER in dire condition.

It also comes in chocolate, peanut butter, cola, cherry, grape and orange.

It looks just like pop rocks.

Please instruct children to not accept candy that looks like this
even from a friend and to take any that they may have to a teacher,
principal, etc.

Pass this around it could save some family a lot of heartache!

They call it strawberry meth or strawberry quick.

Really? Hmmm, I take it literacy isn't a your forte or you blog is satire.

Here's what the link actually says:

Update: In June 2007 this version of a "strawberry meth" e-mail began landing in our inbox:

There is a very scary thing going on in the schools right now that all need to be aware of. There is a type of crystal meth going around that looks like strawberry pop rocks. It smells like strawberry also and it is being handed out to kids in school yards in AR. I'm sure it will make its way around the country if it hasn't already. Kids are ingesting this thinking that it is candy and being rushed off to the E.R. in dire condition.

It also comes in chocolate, peanut butter, cola, cherry, grape and orange — it looks just like pop rocks.

Please instruct your children to not accept candy that looks like this even from a friend and to take any that they may have to a teacher, principal, etc.

That is what they are calling strawberry meth or strawberry quick.

Thought you'd want to know.


The unknown author of that alert has it wrong — nothing we encountered in our research supports that person's allegations about the drug's "being handed out to kids in school yards" in Arkansas (or anywhere else) or that "kids are ingesting this thinking that it is candy and being rushed off to the E.R. in dire condition." In all our research, we didn't come across a single news story about children who had ingested the substance because they mistook it for candy, whether they were subsequently treated at a hospital or not. Likewise, we have consistently failed to find anything that would support the claim that Strawberry Quick is being handed out in schoolyards. Both those claims appear to be the product of the e-mail writer's imagination.


In October 2007 the "updated" version was once again updated, this time dropping the "Checked this on Snopes and it is true" claim and adding in its place a "Halloween Warning for Parents" and the signature of a Homeland Security officer. But other than that, nothing changed — there were still no news stories about actual incidents supporting the updated version's claims of kids' being given the drug in school yards and being rushed to emergency rooms:

Calls to the number given above are answered by this recorded message:
You're reached Special Agent Todd Coleman, with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. If you're calling regarding crystal meth information, that information is false and inaccurate. It was not distributed or originated with this office. Otherwise, leave a message.


----Now, if you can't get that correct, then why should anybody trust what you say about anything else? Meth is a horrible drug, but if you have to resort to blatant falsehoods in order to support your position, then you're doing us no favor.

Remember "Reefer Madness,"the movie. It's become the model qua model for how NOT to discuss drugs. You can thank that generation for the Mary Jane use that we have today. It's in our best interest to report the facts correctly not hyperbolically.

The time that I was blind and needed to see the light was tough. I needed info on living sober. And finally found the one that worked for me.
