Mythbuster: Lauren Smyser

A member of the Idaho Meth Project Teen Advisory Council working to spread the Not Even Once message.

Lauren works in her community to spread the "Not Even Once" message on methamphetamine through the Idaho meth Project Teen Advisory Council.  Lauren is recognized among her peers for her unique and innovative ideas.  Says her nominator and mentor Sophie Dresser, "she is great at making things happen!"

This past summer, Lauren had the idea to do a Not Even Once Night at the local drive-in movie theater.  She helped advertise and get the word out.  The theater was sold out, which means that over 250 carloads of people heard the Not Even Once message before enjoying the movie. 

"I'm proud of the work Lauren is doing in her community to spread awareness on the dangers of drugs. She is a model youth and deserving of some recognition," says Dresser.

The Idaho Meth Project is a nonprofit organization that implements large-scale, research-based campaigns and community action programs to reduce methamphetamine use in the state. Central to its integrated campaigns is MethProject.org, a definitive source for information about Meth for teens.
