Holly Hankins Quoted in the Observer

LAJ student Holly Hankins was quoted in this week's edition of The Observer, in a story about the recent SOURCE symposium.

Holly Hankins conducted research about methamphetamine in Kittitas County. Hankins started her research in the fall of 2011. There has been a drastic decrease in reported methamphetamine cases in the last seven years. There were a reported 155 cases in 2005. In 2010 there were 69 reported cases, a 68 percent decrease.

"One of the reasons for the decrease in methamphetamine use in the recent years is because of awareness of the harm it does to the body," Hankins said.
