Pictures of a former Oregon beauty queen following her arrest on drug-related charges shows the very real effects that crystal meth use has on one’s physical appearance.
Back in 2009, Jamie France was crowned Miss Teen Oregon-World. Five years later, the 23-year-old crystal meth addict looks like an entirely different person.
France is currently being held on $30,000 bail after being arrested and subsequently charged with possession of methamphetamine, heroin and suboxene.
France’s arrest was part of a raid at a drug den where police shockingly found two young children, ages 4 and 7, living with their parents.
