REPORT ON TODAY'S TEEN AND HOW THEY ARE HIDING their DRUG STASH
How Teens Are Hiding Their Drugs
This is just a brief summary of how teens are hiding their drugs around the house. Drugs are being bought and sold to thousands of teens on a daily basis and most of the drugs being bought are being bought in quantity and therefore having to be stored for later usage. Number one drug of choice is marijuana followed by alcohol and pills. Depending on the area that the teen is located this could change but not by much.

Mary J., bud, crank, XO’s, syrup, lick, all slang names for the more popular drugs that are favored among teens. Finding drugs in today’s society is not hard because the local drug dealer is usually found at school. Drugs are easily bought and sold at school because drugs do not go off in metal detectors, only weapons. If they miss school and cant catch the local dealer there is always the nearby house that is well known for selling drugs better known as a “TRAP HOUSE”. This house looks like any normal house in the neighborhood but all the local teens call it the candy house.
Parents, care providers, teachers, counselors, anyone who interacts with our youth should pay close attention to what they are wearing and how they are wearing their clothes. Pay close attention to backpacks, binders, shoes, and anything that seems to get more attention then usual. If it seems out of place investigate it and ask questions. It’s better to be wrong then to be at a funeral because you didn’t. If not that, at the hospital why you’re loved one is having their stomach pumped for drugs. There is always the local morgue to identify the body while the medical examiner explains to you about the overdose. Never stop asking questions even if they get upset.
