Teensavers loves to see these oops stories.

DON’T KNOW A THING ABOUT HOME DRUG TESTS? DON’T GUESS. GET THE FACTS BY CLICKING RIGHT HERE. INSTANT, PRIVATE, AFFORDABLE, AND EFFECTIVE. THE TOOL YOU NEED FOR YOUR FAMILY.

A teen accused of stealing an iPhone from school faces further charges, after the police tracked the teen to his home and found a drug stash of heroin.

It happened in New Canaan, CT. The phone was reported stolen, and school officials along with authorities reviewed school security video at the time of the theft.

When authorities went to the boy’s home six days later armed with a search warrant, they discovered his heroin habit and stash. They also found residue from marijuana and distributing supplies and a scale.

The bust may be the final step in getting this kid some help. It sounds like in addition to his selling drugs to support his habit, he was also turning to stealing to support it. Now that alleged phone theft could lead him toward the path of recovery. I’m sure if he took that phone, he never thought it would leave to a police raid, and his drug habit being found out.

It reminds me of a story last year in which a blogger was standing in the kitchen with his wife and his phone rang. The caller ID identified that it was his wife’s phone. Puzzled, he looked at his wife then answered the phone. They figured out that the phone was in the family car and their teen was driving it. The phone had wedged between the seats and accidentally dialed the parents. Turns out, they heard their teen driving up and down the street asking for perks. He was looking for percocet.

They were able to get their teen help because of that accidental phone call. Hopefully, if this teen is found guilty, he will get help as well.

25 years ago, “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” hit theaters. The movie detailed the story of three teens who have an adventurous day playing hooky. But despite some deception with faking an illness, and a little joyriding in a classic car, the kids sat at a baseball game, went to a parade, and enjoyed a gourmet meal. They didn’t ditch class to raid the liquor cabinet and they weren’t doped up at the Cubs game. Abe Froman wouldn’t even frown on their the behavior of these 17-year-olds. The movie is a classic, and aside from Charlie Sheen’s jail-bound character, which was a great foreshadow of how his real-life would be, the kids stay out of trouble.

How times have changed.

Behind the laughs of the new movie “Project X”, is a serious subject.

It centers around three high schoolers who try to throw the greatest birthday bash of all-time. Who knew that the 17th birthday was the one designated to be celebrated with alcohol, drugs, and nudity? And of course, when nearly 2,000 kids show up, chaos ensues.

This antics in this movie could make the characters in “Old School” blush.

While the movie is rated R, kids who are younger than 18 will undoubtedly sneak into theaters to get a look at this movie, which in trailers looks somewhat funny.

But what message will teens take away from this? If you have a party loaded with alcohol and drugs, you can get laid easily? Funny stuff happens when you are drunk and high?

Moviegoers will likely enjoy this film, and given the fact that good comedies don’t come around very often, it could become the next classic comedy.

But parents need to remember to talk to their kids about drugs and alcohol after they’ve seen this movie. Oscar Wilde once said “Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life.” So while this movie may not be a portrayal of how high school teens typically act, it could inspire them to throw a bash like this.

And if they do, they might find that they don’t need a flame-thrower to get burned.

New Jersey’s Attorney General has had enough.

Jeffrey Chiesa says that the states ban on synthetic marijuana is so serious, that they will prosecute anyone possessing or using the substance as if they were using the real deal.

“Today we are ending this dangerous game played by drug dealers,” Chiesa said at a news conference.

He told the public that there are no gray areas, selling or distributing these substances is crystal clear, “We are making unambiguously clear that, if a synthetic chemical is being sold because it mimics the effects of marijuana, the dealer is committing a crime.”

New Jersey is the fourth state to criminalize any variation of the products, known by many names, such as k2, spice, ivory wave, and bath salts.

The chemicals have hundreds of  400 variations and are considered a controlled and dangerous substance on par with cocaine or heroin.  Manufacturing, selling, or possessing the drugs is now a third-degree crime.  The maximum sentence is five years in prison and $25,000 in fines.

If you are unfamiliar with the products, teen are ingesting them as a way to get around using marijuana, which can be detected in drug tests.   The products are some kind of herb and sprayed or soaked in a chemical solution that mimics the effects of marijuana.

Numerous kids have died using these products, and thousands more have been sickened by them.  They report hallucinations, chest pains, and heart issues.

Parents need to talk to their children about the dangers of these products, as sellers continue to stock their store shelves with them in nearly every state.    And while police have stepped up their enforcement, it’s virtually impossible to confiscate all pieces of these products.
