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.

Retraction of Children's Meth Story

Dear DeathbyMeth readers:

I would like to apologize for a mistake I made in posting a story called "Children's Meth". I will do my best in the future to run my posts through a more stringent filter.

Apparently the story is untrue and I am glad for it and officially retract that story from my blog.


I don't like seeing someone shoot an arrow at me, personally attack me in addition to the story and then run behind the tree of "ANONYMOUS". It's cowardly.... but I will thank "Anonymous" for pointing out an error I have made as it is the right thing to do.

Dear Anonymous.............

Thank you for your comment. At the time I posted Children's meth I did check snopes and it stated the story was true. I am sorry I didn't take it a step further and call the telephone numbers.

I stand corrected and retract the story.

You may see the writer (anonymous) full comments under the story line "Children's Meth" in the comments section.

Regarding this statement: "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." ....

Unfortunately, I don't need to RESORT to blatant falsehoods because the effects on our children, communities, economy and lifestyle SHOUT loudly and clearly enough that people can get the message that Meth is death.

If you feel this one error in 3 years is enough for you to NOT trust what I say, and not read my blog..... then so be it. What's MOST important to me is that people who DO NOT KNOW the extent of damage that meth causes get some exposure through this blog and have their ears and eyes opened to what is happening in our families, neighborhoods, cities and country.

You are very gracious to the person who was so critical of you...people tend to be cowardly on the net. Snopes is unreliable, but few people are aware of that, so it wasn't your fault - you did your best to verify the story.

Far more important is raising the awareness of the dangers of meth use! You are doing a service to your fellow man with this site. I wish you all the best.

God bless you ~
