Methematics


It's honors thesis time for Mary and after nearly four years of immersing myself in New York City and running around the world, it's ironic that the lens of my thesis will focus on none other than Lane County, Oregon.

I'm writing about meth (methamphetamine) and how it is destroying rural America. It all stems from those eerie encounters with toothless gas station attendents and friends from high school who have seemingly vanished off the face of the earth due to a drug that some experts estimate is 10 times more potent than cocaine.

I'll spare you the details of what I'm specifically looking into, but if you or anyone you know, in Oregon or out, could be a valuable source, drop me a line.
