We want to remind all of our loyal readers that visit this page for information that we now are running our blog on our own hosted wordpress site Teenhomedrugtest.com.
Please stop by for our Daily 7 Panel and to catch up on all of the latest teen drug trends and home drug test answers.
The school day started with a crush of cops on the campuses of three Temecula Valley high schools.
In the end, 20 juvenile students were in handcuffs, and two adult students were headed to jail cells.
A long time undercover operation from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department focused on a variety of drugs.
According to the Murrieta Patch, the investigation resulted in the seizure of marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, ecstasy, heroin LSD, and prescription drugs.
There were a number of agencies that assisted the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department with the arrests.
They included the Southwest Corridor Narcotics Task Force, West County Narcotics Task Force, the Riverside County Regional Gang Task Force, the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office and Temecula Police Department Special Enforcement Team.
British Prime Minister David Cameron discarded the notion that Great Britain may be embracing any type of drug decriminalization any time soon.
Cameron told the BBC, “Drugs use is coming down, the emphasis on treatment is absolutely right, and we need to continue with that to make sure we can really make a difference.”

It seems silly that vanity would be the main reason to stop a teen from trying drugs.
Stop Meth in its tracks with Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit. Detect the meth before your teen transforms like the people below.
But if that’s what it takes, fantastic!
Every once in a while, an anti-drug campaign will release a so-called “faces of meth” poster with some shocking transformations.
The Daily Mail found the latest campaign from rehabs.com.
It’s enough to scare a kid away from methamphetamine!
When it comes to teens and young adult users, marijuana and prescription drugs are the top two commonly abused drugs.
But lurking as another option is methamphetamine.
Don’t guess if your teen or loved one is using drugs. Teensavers Home Drug Test Kits tell you within 3-minutes. Lab accurate, affordable, and confidential. Teensavers is the right solution for your family.
Meth has changed structure and compounds over the years, but it remains popular.
One area where law enforcement officers have made big strides against meth production and distribution is in Philadelphia.
And the website Phillyburbs.com has a great article talking about the origins of meth, and who the current meth users and meth producers are.
You may live far from Philadelphia, but automatically write this article off as something not pertaining to your family or your community.
Education and awareness are key. Parents need to be informed on which drugs are popular, what kids call them, and what signs to look for when someone is using and abusing drugs.
Most people do not know very much about methamphetamine production and use, and the PhillyBurbs article is a good quick study on the drug and the culture of the people who use it.
As the article indicates, Meth is a popular choice for kids these days. It may not be as accessible as marijuana or painkillers, but kids have shown a liking for it.
An informed parent will make better parenting decisions.
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.
His story is very similar to others who have died from drug abuse.
But unlike the others who are buried in cemeteries all over America, Jeff Thompson is alive to tell his story.
And he wants kids to listen.
Don’t gamble on your teen being the one who survives drug abuse. Take action!
He spoke to the Las Vegas Sun about his ignorance regarding the strength of drugs, the place where drugs eventually took his close drug-using friends, and the best advice he can live from now that he’s sober.
He started using marijuana at 12, evolved to pills at 14, and moved on to heroin by 16.
He told the Sun’s Jackie Valley, “Unfortunately, most of my friends passed away or are in jail,” he said. “There’s not really an in-between.”
Kids that get high should read Jeff Thompson’s story. He said he had no idea how addictive pills were.
And explains, something we’ve illustrated many times, that a balloon of heroin becomes much cheaper than the pills.
Children don’t have to go down a dark alley and deal with adult gang members to get their hands on marijuana or numerous other illicit drugs.
But that’s the image that most parents see.
Police officers in Dayton, Ohio have arrested a 14-year-old for bringing marijuana to school and planning to sell it.
The 8th grader attends Meadowdale PreK-8 School, but he spent Halloween at the Juvenile Justice Center.
School administrators called police after they noticed the boy had a big zip top bags with individual bags of marijuana inside.
Officers believe that the teen was trying to sell the drugs on campus, and that the boy had also smoked pot in the restroom.
This is a reminder that kids get their drug supply from other kids.
Kids are also getting pills from the medicine cabinet, and they will either abuse them, or sell them to another teen to abuse.
Teensavers is giving a shout out to our stars of Sobriety . Today’s celebrity is Frank Conniff.
The picture above is a post from his twitter feed, marking 27 years to the day he regained his sobriety.
Conniff is an actor and writer best known for his role as Frank on Mystery Science Theater 3000.
In 2007, Coniff opened up to asitecalledfred.com about his drug use as a high schooler, growing up in New York.
In those years, I really went down a very misguided path. I became, like, a total stoner, and was just kind of a hippie stoner loser kind of a guy, and I didn’t even have the ambition to be a comedian and stuff. That kinda fell by the wayside for awhile. I got involved with drugs and stuff, and I took a really bad detour there for a while. You know that – miraculously, and I’m very grateful that – I came out of that. And once I sobered up and stopped taking drugs and stopped drinking, then I was really able to really pursue my path in life.
Today back in New York, Coniff finds himself look at 27 years of a clean lifestyle, and a very creative and artistic path in that time.
There are many reasons to like Bradley Cooper.
Teens and young adults think he is funny.
People Magazine and millions of women find him sexy.
We love that he is sober and speaking out about it to the Hollywood Reporter!
Cooper, the man who has made millions laugh as the hungover Phil in the Hangover, is opening up about how his life mirrored the movie.
He detailed one account from a party where he was banging his head on the concrete to show his toughness, but all that resulted was a trip to the hospital.
But that was 8-years ago, and he’s lived life without alcohol and drugs every since.
We need more people like Cooper to speak out about alcohol and drug use.
Some may see his a hypocrite for portraying a highly intoxicated character, but a role is a role and reality is reality.
Cooper doesn’t have to open up about his demons, or his self-destructing ways, but hopefully people will learn from his experiences.
In a time when stars show up busted for DUI or drug-related arrests or encounters routinely on TMZ.com, it’s refreshing to see that one of the hottest actors in Hollywood is handling his meteoric rise to stardom drug and alcohol free.
