Officers are used to piecing together drug “families,” networks of people involved in a trafficking ring.

In New Boston, Ohio, detectives managed to bust an entire family on suspicion of drug dealing.

They rounded up a dad, mom, two sons, and an uncle.  The five now face drug charges.

According to WSAZ’s newschannel 3, Five members of one family from Scioto County have been indicted, and are now behind bars.

A Scioto County Grand Jury indicted Ricky A. Grooms, 47, his common law spouse Dana Cattell, 43; their sons Ricky Grooms II, 25, and Ryan Grooms,22, along with the elder Grooms’ brother Roy Grooms,46.

New Boston Police arrested four of the five were yesterday. A fifth turned himself in after learning of the other arrests.

All five people will remain in the Scioto County Jail until they are arraigned in Scioto County common Pleas court.

Police say the family lived in an area buzzing with drug activity and they had been following up on complaints and tips regarding the illegal sales.

A new study from the University of Cincinnati is showing a potential connection between young stroke patients, and a history of alcohol, cigarette, and/or drug use.

Empower your teen to say no to peer pressure with Teensavers.

University researchers looked at over 1,000 patients. Their results appear in the journal Stroke.

Substance abuse is common in young adults experiencing a stroke,” wrote lead researcher Brett Kissela.

Many people associate strokes as a condition of the elderly but researchers now believe drug abuse or heavy drinking may put users at higher-than-average risk earlier in life.

Not only is the possibility of future strokes when a younger person has a life time of alcohol and/or drug abuse, but researchers believe they are seeing more immediate strokes with certain drug users.

In 2005, the most recent year covered, just over half of young adults who suffered a stroke were smokers at the time, and one in five used illicit drugs, including marijuana and cocaine. Thirteen percent of people had used drugs or alcohol within 24 hours of their stoke.

Officers and deputies know the force of it.

But sometimes, they can not tell how to recognize it.

Ask any officer that has struggled with a suspect under the influence of synthetic drugs, and they will tell you, they had to fight off super-human strength from an often much smaller combatant.

But recognizing these substances in a plastic bag is a lot more difficult.

Police in San Bernardino got a thorough lesson in the differences of synthetic drugs from spice and k2 marijuana-type products, and bath salts, a more PCP like compound.

The Inland Daily Bulletin was there, as experts showed the officers the compounds, packaging, and explained the effects of the drugs.

It’s a good article for parents to read to understand how potentially lethal products, packaged in very child-attracting ways, are being consumed by kids across America.

While synthetics are very popular in some parts of the country, other areas have been slow to see their arrival.

Numerous states have issued bans on the substances, and the federal government also issued emergency blocks on the major chemical compounds, but the truth is that amateur scientists are creating these substances daily.

Myteensavers reminds parents to talk to your kids about drugs. While there are lunch fruit snacks called Scooby Snacks that are a legitimate product, there is a synthetic compound marketed as Scooby Snax.

The packaging is typically labeled “not for human consumption” but that’s not only a disclaimer for the manufacturers, but it’s a red flag for people wanting to get high from these compounds.

The Mayor of Olive Hill, Kentucky, Danny Sparks, has resigned from his position after undercover officers caught him in a drug selling sting near a school.

Could someone seemingly safe be selling drugs to your kids? Learn the street terms and listen to what your kids or their friends are saying.

Officers say that Sparks sold them marijuana just 1,000 feet from Olive Hill Elementary.

While Sparks called the incident a big mistake, he resigned his post following the arrest.

The Journal-Times published a copy of his resignation letter.

“Due to a very bad mistake that I have made tonight, and have failed the trust of the good people of Olive Hill, my friends and most of all my family, I have decided with deep regret to resign tonight as Mayor of Olive Hill. I hope that everyone will understand that I have always tried to do the very best for Olive Hill and hope that the people will understand that I will always try to continue to help in any way possible to better this City regardless of what position I may serve. What happen(ed) tonight is something I have never done before and deeply regret it and hope to move on.”

Drugs can send good people down the path of making poor decisions.

Authorities in Minnesota have charged a man for killing a teenager and his cousin, that broke into the man’s home over the Thanksgiving holiday period.

Officers discovered stolen pill vials in the car that is believed to have been used by the teens in a separate burglary.

Parents can screen for pill use with one simple 3-minute test.

The missing pills came from the home of a man who had been vacationing in Spain.  That home had been broken into a night or two before the burglary with the shootings.

According to the Duluth News Tribune, the teens broke into the home in Little Falls, and homeowner Bryan Smith fired a shot which wounded the boy. But Smith then fired a shot to the teen’s face killing him.

When the girl emerged from stairs, he shot and wounded her. But authorities told the paper that while the girl lay wounded, Smith put a gun up to the girls chin and fired one final “good, cleaning finishing shot” killing her.

Toxicology reports have not been released on the teens, to see if they may have been high on the pills at the time of the second robbery.

But if these teens did have a pill problem, you can see how an addiction can lead kids to do things that put their life in danger just to continue their pill supply.

It’s a small town hit by a tragedy, and it may have been prevented if the teens had never been experimenting with prescription drugs.

She wasn’t moving millions of dollars in illicit drugs, but a 32 year old Georgia woman will spend the next six months behind bars for pushing small packages of pills.

Kids are obtaining pills from these small type drug dealers. Teensavers is your extra set of eyes.

Undercover agents met Erica Kohl, and obtained 20 Oxycontin tablets during one encounter, and then busted her a second time at the same shopping mall for another 20 pills.

According to the Marietta Times, prosecutors established a sufficient case against a woman who was not keeping up with the court’s request for drug counseling and treatment.

Perhaps she didn’t take this case against her too seriously, but when the judge handed down the sentence, Kohl realized this meant not spending Christmas with her son this year.

As people get caught up with the money of drug dealing, they often lose sight of the consequences.

She will now have the next six months to think about how drug dealing is not the best career choice.

Adderall has been a big helper to people coping with ADHD.  This includes children diagnosed with the condition.

But adderall is also one drug that is frequently misused by people of all ages.

The Seattle Times’ Larry Stone takes a look at how it is popular in professional sports as a performance enhancer.

Teens also abuse it as a study enhancer.

In a recent anti drug coalition meeting in Orange County, California, several teens were in attendance.

They were asked about kids using adderall and other so called “study drugs.”

Several admitted that they know of use on campus by their peers.

Moms and dads have an ally against drug abuse. Teensavers Home Drug Test Kits detect adderall and other amphetamines that

We used to see an explosion of this in college, as students were trying to keep up between midterms and papers.

But high schoolers are now looking for that competitive edge, as they know they kid sitting in the desk across the aisle could be gunning for the spot at their preferred college.

Most parents don’t realize that a drug like adderall needs to be monitored for when it comes to trying to prevent or detect teen drug use.

Too many parents focus on their nose as the detection agent for marijuana and alcohol.

But many popular drugs of abuse can’t be smelled by the nose.

Parents also cannot be naive to think that because their student is a straight A student or takes AP classes that they are drug free.

There are many kids with a 4.0 GPA that have overdosed on drugs.

If you’re a parent of a teen who is prescribed adderall by the family doctor, make sure they take their dosage as recommended.

That means despite the fact that Johnny or Mary are now 17 and 18 years old, you know how many pills are in the bottle at all times, and you watch them take it.

Kids with prescriptions can take it haphazardly, trying to get by without it at times, so that they can abuse it later.

Many kids sell or trade their medications for money and/or other drugs.

If you are a parent and you see your child acting a little strange come finals time, don’t just immediately assume it to be stress related.

There may be other factors involved.

America’s Parenting Coach, Tim Chapman, says that more kids are abusing study drugs because they are just trying to keep up with the other guy. He says it’s akin to athletes doping to keep up with competitors.

It’s a reminder that the drug debate, needs to include substances like study helpers, relaxers, and sleeping aids.

A test to detect teen marijuana use in 3-minutes? Your nose doesn’t know. Teensavers does!

Outgoing Mexican President Felipe Calderon is calling for an end to the drug war.

But President-elect Enrique Pena Nieto has a different view. But a critical piece of the drug debate south of the border is now the legalization of marijuana in two states here.

Nieto sat down with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer to discuss the dilemma of being against the legalization of drugs, but seeing the potential economic windfall of controlling illicit substances.

What does it mean to Americans? Since most of the drugs imported into America funnel through Mexico, it’s quite a big deal.

But would legalizing drugs there end cartel activity? Would legalizing drugs here stop the flow of drugs in from Mexico, if we had legalized marijuana growth?

Millions of Americans are obsessed with marijuana, pot, weed, chronic, herb,  420.

Whatever you want to call it, millions of teens are also obsessed with it. They can’t wait to get home from school to smoke it, if they haven’t smoked it during school.

As the nation waits to see the ramifications of the new measures in Washington and Colorado that legalized marijuana, people ponder if the floodgates will open in other states.

If those two states see a boost in the budget, you can bet cash-strapped states will follow suit.

Why should we care if it is legalized if we don’t smoke? It could be because kids will have more access to it.

Kids can easily get their hands on alcohol. All it takes is an older sibling or friend. Kids attend parties already where massive liquor supplies exist.

Why would it be any different with weed?

Studies conflict whether marijuana is the gateway drug, alcohol is a gateway drug, both are, or neither are.

But one has been shown concretely is that marijuana use can damage a teen’s brain, when use is started at an early age, and continued through adulthood.

It may one day be the right thing for adults to try and use responsibly, but legal or not, marijuana is not a drug that should be abused as often as it is by children.

If you didn’t catch last night’s Intervention, it was about a mother who had a severe meth and Oxycontin habit.

Detect Oxycontin use in a 3-minute affordable, reliable, and private Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit.

And the person she got her drugs from was typically her brother.

While many users may experiment with drugs for the first time with a sibling or loved one, most typically do not continue buying from their siblings.

This is important for parents to look for and recognize especially when they discover that an eldest child of theirs has experimented with drugs.

Sometimes it will completely turn the younger siblings away, and sometimes it may make drug use more attractive or less dangerous to those kids.

If they see that brother or sister is using, and they are carrying on a seemingly normal and functioning life, they may perceive reduced risks with using drugs.

Oftentimes even while using together, sibling will hide their actual drug use, and only admit to a lesser usage.

If you haven’t watched A&E’s Intervention, it’s a powerful show.   It’s worth hiting the DVR record button.

There are a lot of patients with severe alcohol problems. Parents can learn from the interventionist just how significant of a role they play in enabling a young drinker or drug abuser.
