Just how comfortable are children around drugs?  Very comfortable. They use them, and buy and sell them on middle and high school campuses across the country.

PARENTS MUST STAND STRONG AGAINST THIS GROWING TEEN TREND OF DRUG USE AND DRUG POSSESSION. CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE HELP YOU NEED.

The latest bust saw 8 teens put in handcuffs by police in Florida.

It was another “21 jump street” type investigation where undercover officers posed as students.

Once befriending them, they found the drug connections on the campuses of Palm Beach Central High in Wellington Florida.

The students were all charged with selling marijuana within 1,000 feet of a school. With texting and each teen possessing a cellphone, drug deals are made frequently in the classroom.

Unfortunately, these kids are brazen and have no fear of the potential legal ramifications of getting caught. They are concerned with two things; getting high, and making a profit.

This is when parents need to be involved the most. They need to talk to kids about the dangers of drugs and the legal implications of buying, selling, or possessing drugs.

Home drug testing is also a way to make sure that teens are drug free. Teen addicts in treatment tell myteensavers that they had little reinforcement of the anti-drug message at home. Remember, drug use for the first time typically occurs with someone they know and someone they trust!
