The people at Teensavers bring you stories about drugs affecting the community.     We’ve seen an explosion in prescription drug and heroin use the last several years.

Recently, the Chicago Sun-Times has been consistently reporting on the epidemic going in Illinois, and the drug dealings along the so-called heroin highway.

Heroin can be found in nearly every community.

Is it as readily available as marijuana? Of course not.

But it can be found, if a person makes an even half hearted attempt.

Heroin users aren’t bad people. They are people who typically get hooked on prescription drugs. Nobody wakes up and says, “I’m going to try heroin today.”

Heroin use comes as a need. Addicts, hooked on opioids, are desperate to continue their fix, but they often cannot afford 10, 25, 100 pills a day.

Families need to realize that prescription drugs, medications that can be found in almost every home, are the gateway to heroin.

There is no other direct link to drug use as closely associated as painkillers are to heroin.

Christopher Steil, 17, a junior at Minnechaug Regional High in Wilbraham, MA, says that drugs are everywhere.

He tells Masslive.com that the amount of drugs available to kids there is unbelievable, and that students can score marijuana, cocaine, LSD, and ecstasy.

Steil says that the drugs are sold in parks and bathrooms on campus, and that kids know to keep drugs out of their lockers and cars, instead carrying them in their pockets and backpacks.

One quote that was telling was that Steil says prior to attending Minnechaug Regional in 09, he had not heard of half the drugs being sold on campus. Now he says, “I am surrounded by them.”

School officials dispute Steil’s claims, and other students say that the drug problem at that campus is no different than drug issues at other schools.

Teensavers came across the release from Tufts University which points out why parents need to monitor what their kids do and how they can help them make better choices.

MARIJUANA SMOKING ISN’T A RITE OF PASSAGE FOR TEENS. AND WHILE NEARLY 30% OF TEENS SMOKE POT, MANY THINK IT’S SAFE AND SHOULD BE LEGAL. DON’T LET YOUR TEEN FALL INTO THIS TRAP AND HARM NOT ONLY THEIR FUTURE, BUT PERHAPS THEIR CHILDREN’S FUTURE. CLICK HERE FOR THE ACCURATE AND RELIABLE ANSWER TO TEEN DRUG EXPERIMENTATION.

Here is the press release from Tufts University.

Mothers who use marijuana as teens—long before having children—may put their future children at a higher risk of drug abuse, new research suggests.

Researchers in the Neuroscience and Reproductive Biology section at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine conducted a study to determine the transgenerational effects of cannabinoid exposure in adolescent female rats. For three days, adolescent rats were administered the cannabinoid receptor agonist WIN-55, 212-2, a drug that has similar effects in the brain as THC, the active ingredient in marijuana. After this brief exposure, they remained untreated until being mated in adulthood.

The male offspring of the female rats were then measured against a control group for a preference between chambers that were paired with either saline or morphine. The rats with mothers who had adolescent exposure to WIN-55,212-2 were significantly more likely to opt for the morphine-paired chamber than those with mothers who abstained. The results suggest that these animals had an increased preference for opiate drugs.

The study was published in the Journal of Psychopharmocology and funded by the National Institutes of Health.

“Our main interest lies in determining whether substances commonly used during adolescence can induce behavioral and neurochemical changes that may then influence the development of future generations,” said Research Assistant Professor John J. Byrnes, the study’s lead author, “We acknowledge that we are using rodent models, which may not fully translate to the human condition. Nevertheless, the results suggest that maternal drug use, even prior to pregnancy, can impact future offspring.”

Byrnes added that much research is needed before a definitive connection is made between adolescent drug use and possible effects on future children.

The study builds on earlier findings by the Tufts group, most notably a study published last year in Behavioral Brain Research by Assistant Professor Elizabeth Byrnes that morphine use as adolescent rats induces changes similar to those observed in the present study.

Other investigators in the field have previously reported that cannabinoid exposure during pregnancy (in both rats and humans) can affect offspring development, including impairment of cognitive function, and increased risk of depression and anxiety.

Teen drinking isn’t funny. More teens than ever before are becoming binge drinkers.

Here’s a photo making the rounds today and receiving quite a bit of fanfare. It pictures a teen holding a photo with the words “Since I want to post photos of me holding liquor. I am obviously not ready for social media and will be taking a hiatus until I learn what I should and should not post.”

Salute these parents for correcting this teen’s behaviors. Parents should be checking out their children’s social media. Facebook and Twitter aren’t just popular for tech junkies and stay at home moms. Remember, numerous kids in elementary and middle school are using social media to swap photos and interact. There’s a reason why Instagram was just swooped up for a hefty price tag.

One any of these given sites you can look up and see plenty of references about drug use. Kids boast about drinking, parties, drugs, and sneaking everything by their parents.

If they are silly enough to make these mistakes, boasting about doing illegal activites, what else might they try?

Try to keep and eye on the things your teen not only says and does, but posts!

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!

A student found unresponsive at Colorado State University appears to have overdosed on heroin. According to the Rocky Mountain Collegian, authorities found black tar heroin near the body of Sean McGowan.

McGowan’s body was found in his Summit Hall residence after the holiday weekend. Authorities do not know how long he may have been dead before being discovered. Preliminary information released by authorities indicated that McGowan’s death may have been drug related. Now the Rocky Mountain Collegian is releasing additional details to support that claim.

Larimer Deputy Coroner Greg Fairman not only announced the discovery of black tar heroin, but Fairman also indicated that track marks were found on McGowan’s arms. Toxicology reports will take several weeks to confirm the early suspicions.

Kids on campus were in shock yesterday. But this is the second young death on a college campus in a matter of weeks that appears drug or alcohol related. Just a few weeks ago, a Southern California boy, Glen Parrish, 18, was found dead at UCLA. Parrish’s family members reported that the young man died after a lengthy night of alcohol and drug use.

Parents need to continue the anti-drug dialogue with their children, even after they turn 18, and head off to college. No parents want to send their child off to college, only to have them return in a coffin.

Teens abusing prescription drugs is pretty scary.    But, Pfizer  reminds us that there is something more frightening out there –
counterfeit drugs that could be even more harmful to our children.

CLICK HERE FOR THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO PROTECT YOUR KIDS

Of  course the news Pfizer was making, was possibly more aimed at making
sure their products are purchased by Americas, but the company’s warning
brings up a good point.   Could kids be so desperate to get high, that
they might abuse counterfeit pills?    Those pills, Pfizer warns, can
contain things like rat poison or lead.

 

Pfizer and the pharmacy association estimated that worldwide sales of counterfeit
medicines was $75 billion in 2010.    That amounts to one in six Americans buying medicines on the Internet.

 

It’s downright scary to think that kids could be abusing pills regularly.   But some have no
fear and go to great lengths to get high.   Kids are abusing bath salts,  product specifically labeled “not for human consumption” to get high.

Kids  combing the streets for Xanax, Oxy, or Percocet don’t know if they are
getting a legitimate pill or not.    They may even be buying the pills
online themselves.   How difficult is it for a kid to order online, and
then stalk the mailbox after school before mom and dad get home?

 

Pfizer’s information is good information for parents.  They have created a Youtube channel that you can access by clicking HERE.

 

Home  drug testing is a key way to detect illegal substances in your child.
The Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit is available online at reliable
retailers like Amazon.com and the drugstore.com

drugs by someone they know, they won’t hesitate to say, “I can’t. My
parents home drug test me.””
