We have talked many times about parents relying on the smell test at the end of a Friday or Saturday night.

They encounter their teen as their teen comes home around curfew, and they engage them in a small conversation, give them a hug and a kiss, and say good night.

What they’ve also been doing during that brief minute or two exchange is sniff, sniff, sniff.

Parents believe that the easiest thing to do at the end of the night is to give their teen a look over, and then see if they can detect any smell of cigarettes, alcohol, or drugs.

But sometimes the nose won’t detect any odor, but instinct is telling parents that something isn’t right.

What next?

In the world of drug use and detection, the “break glass in case of emergency” tool is the Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit.

The Teensavers kit is the next level of detection.

Instinct can be a big factor for parents. Their teen may not be stumbling around or incoherent, but there’s enough there to suspect that something isn’t quite right.

Within three minutes you will have your answer.

1 panel tests screen for marijuana (THC)

3 panel tests screen for marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine

5 panel tests screen for the above three plus opiates and oxycodone

7 panel tests screen for the previous 5 plus benzodiazepines and ecstasy

12 panel tests screen for the previous 7 plus amphetamines, barbiturates, methadone, PCP, and tricyclic antidepressants.

We never quite find out where and when viral videos are shot.

One that may have McDonalds executives raising their eyebrows can be seen on worldstarhiphop.com.

The site known for featuring violent attack videos, has a video of a drive through encounter with a McDonalds employee smoking marijuana from inside the store.

The person video recording the episode is laughing up a storm with his counterpart.

You can see the video by clicking HERE.

There is a great article in the Marion Star today by Nick Bechtel.

It is a very deep look at how heroin use can not only grip a drug user, but how it can put the whole family on edge.

We highly recommend that you take some time reading how opiate addiction and heroin use is infiltrating our suburbs, and how families are coping with it.

The lucky ones are the ones who may be enduring a several year period of addiction, incarceration, and residential treatment programs.

The unlucky ones have buried their kids.

The article can be found HERE.

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!

An interesting viewpoint from Mother Jones’ Gavin Aronsen.

Citing the recent “first of its kind” synthetic marijuana study that we told you about on this blog a few days ago, Aronsen makes the argument that these drugs wouldn’t exist if marijuana wasn’t banned in the first place.

Long before the abuse of synthetic drugs, is the abuse of other illicit and legal drugs. One test detects drug use in minutes.

But the truth is, people with a desire to reach a high have long sought out alternative methods to what has been available.

Synthetic marijuana users aren’t pushed to the fake stuff because an absence or illegality of weed.

Marijuana is everywhere.

Synthetic drugs like k2 spice, bath salts etc. exist because people want to go to that next level.

People would smoke low level marijuana if they just liked to get high, but marijuana connoisseurs grow, sell, and buy premium grade marijuana at dispensaries where medicinal marijuana can be legally sold.

I know someone who abuses spice, k2, and other synthetic marijuana products.

She has been a long time marijuana smoker. She has no problem gaining access to a small amount of marijuana.

But she chooses to use synthetics because they make her feel good.

She pays more for the synthetic high, and she doesn’t even take the legality of either substance in consideration when she wants to use.

In the end, it really isn’t important why people use synthetic drugs. The key is that synthetics can kill, and need to be removed from store shelves.

Various news outlets in television and radio have picked up the story about small private companies offering drug detecting dog services at home.

The best tool goes beyond k9 searches. Teensavers 12 panel home drug test is the most comprehensive test for families.

And while drug dogs are very effective at discovering drugs in a home, they can’t provide parents with the answer they really want to know. Which drugs are their child abusing?

Kids may buy an amount of marijuana, and only use a small amount of the stash each time.

But if they are buying other drugs, they typically buy and use them instantly.

With Teensavers Home Drug Test Kits, you know if your child has been using painkiller, ecstasy, cocaine, methamphetamine, or another illicit drug.

Sure, when pressed, your teen may admit to using marijuana, and will gladly cough up some of his bag.

But he’s not going to tell you that he’s been raiding the medicine cabinet, or that he has a big designer drug habit.

Teensavers Home Drug Test Kits can bring your results beyond the bark of a drug detecting dog.

 

We are learning just how many youths and young adults are having serious health complications from synthetic marijuana.

The Drug Abuse Warning Network has released its’ first study on synthetic marijuana.

K2, Spice and other synthetic compounds that mimic the effects of marijuana high sent 11,406 people — mostly teens and young adults — to the ER in 2010.

The report, found that children ages 12 to 17 accounted for one-third of the emergency room visits. Young adults ages 18 to 24 accounted for another 35%.

“This report confirms that synthetic drugs cause substantial damage to public health and safety,” Office of National Drug Control Policy Director Gil Kerlikowske said.

Spice and K2, marketed as legal, fake pot and labeled as herbal incense, emerged in 2009 as popular drugs among teenagers and college students, who could purchase the substances online, in head shops, and in convenience stores.

Problems quickly emerged. Doctors reported teenagers arriving in the emergency room with high fevers and strange behavior.

The packaging clearly states “not for human consumption” but that almost serves as a beacon for teens that “hey this is the stuff you want to mess around with.”

The DEA instituted an emergency ban on the key chemical components. In July, Congress banned sales of K2, Spice and other synthetic drugs under the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act.

However, amateur chemists continue to make these compounds and hand them out to people, treating them almost as guinea pigs.

It’s important for parents to understand what these compounds are, and for them to have a meaningful dialogue with their kids about the dangers.

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.
