Jamie Lynn France recently complained about her terrible fortune on her Facebook page.

France wrote, “When am I gonna get a break? I feel like it's definitely my turn for some good karma to come my way soon. Pretty sure this has been the most painful year yet.”

Poor Jamie Lynn didn’t know that the worst was yet to come.

Only five years ago, things were much different for the aspiring beauty queen.

In 2009, the bright-eyed blonde was crowned Miss. Teen Oregon-World.

In a photograph shared by Keizer Police Department, members of the public are able to glimpse how Jamie Lynn France once was: a smiling, perky teenage girl who had her whole life ahead of her.

This photo, from several years ago, was shown side-by-side with how France looks today at age 23.

And the difference is chilling.

Jamie Lynn France is virtually unrecognizable; her face filled with blemishes often found on those who have abused the drug methamphetamine over a lengthy period.

The bright, hopeful smile was gone from France’s face, replaced with a rather cynical smirk.

The transformation is so jarring that the Keizer Police Department used the photos of Jamie Lynn France as a PSA to the public:

The Keizer Police Department would like to take this opportunity to caution against the use of illegal controlled substances because of the terrible long-term effects to the user, their families and our communities.

Jamie Lynn France was busted at the Roadway Inn in Salem, Oregon with her drug dealer, 37-year-old Jarrod Thomas Wells.

It turned out that Wells had been under investigation by police for months. Law enforcement agents steadily gathered evidence for a planned drug bust.

In the end, France was nabbed along with Wells and his wife Erin.

The former beauty queen was found to be in possession of various illegal substances, including meth, heroin, and Suboxone.

France is currently being held on $30,000 bail.

One can only hope that this is the rock bottom that will allow Jamie Lynn France to successfully turn her life around.
