A report this morning indicates that President Obama and the First Lady are upset regarding alcohol and drug use at the private school where their children attend.
The $70,000-a-year private school is making headlines after a study revealed teen drinking and drug habits.
A report in the National Enquirer said the Obamas are concerned about daughters Malia, 14, and Sasha, 11, after a report in the school newspaper Horizon revealed that 71 per cent of students admitted attending parties where drugs and alcohol were available.
Apparently 25% of the boys surveyed admitted to driving under the influence of alcohol.

A former student also told the Enquirer, “I have seen kids snorting coke, smoking pot, getting high and boozing. There’s huge money at the school and the older kids host parties at their private residences. Many of them live in big mansions in Washington, or in affluent suburbs where drugs and booze are common.”
If these allegations are true, it highlights that no school is immune to the presence of drugs and alcohol.
It alerts parents to the problem that is widespread. It can serve as a reminder to parents to discuss alcohol and drug use with their kids.
Some kids think marijuana is safe, because it is now classified as medicine in various states.
Other kids think prescription drugs are safer than the illegal drugs, because doctors dispense them.
We all know the truth is that, drugs are toxic and harmful to the body. They are also heavily addictive and can kill.
