There’s no doubt parents will have a ton on their plates this week before they pack on the pounds form their Thanksgiving feasts this holiday weekend.

Help your kid say no! A drug test on the counter can influence them to make the right decision this weekend. That’s something to be thankful for!

Millions are preparing to travel today. Many millions more are prepping a Thanksgiving feast. Then there’s the countless people gearing up to wait in line over night and cash in on bargain sales Thursday and Friday.

Millions of teens are preparing too.

They’ve been spending days and weeks stocking up on liquor, marijuana, pills, and other illicit drugs for what is now known by some as “Black Wednesday.”

The Wednesday before Thanksgiving is one of the biggest nights for teen drinking and drug use.

It’s a 5 day weekend, or in some cases a mini vacation that lasts 7 days, as some school districts take the entire Thanksgiving week off.

In many states, agencies like the California Highway Patrol will beef up its’ presence on the roads for “maximum enforcement” against drinking and drugged driving.

There are increased sobriety checkpoints, and more officers are on the streets and highways looking for impaired drivers.

Bars will be packed tonight, and many under aged high school and college students will party with alcohol and/or drugs.

Teens who are subject to random drug tests at school know that they can use on a Wednesday night, and will likely test clean come Monday morning at school.

Most have done their research, and have discovered that drugs typically stay in a person’s system for up to 72 hours, when the drug use is highly infrequent.

That means if they parents aren’t testing their child Friday or Saturday, the traces of detectable drugs are long gone by Monday morning.

There are numerous sites where kids ask questions about drug detection. And those are just the kids who either face testing at school, or face testing on occasion by their parents at home.

Parents need to have conversations with their kids, and despite turning in early tonight because of all the food preparations tomorrow, make sure they are awake when their teens return home for the night.

It’s easy to get lost in the myriad of recipes and sales that are the focal point of this weekend, but perhaps parents need to remember what they are most thankful for; family. And some awareness and effort can help ensure that they are again thankful this holiday season in 2013.

We have seven weeks left in the year, and already Will County, Illinois has a new record for heroin or opiate related deaths.

So far in 2012, the county has lost 37 people from heroin.

Last year’s total was 30.

Some parents have been taking the lead in trying to educate parents, but there needs to be more involvement.

Parents need to understand that kids are abusing pills because they are accessible, and they turn to heroin when it is necessary to keep the high.

One of the leading voices is John Roberts, who lost his teenaged son to heroin in 2009.

He has been holding community meetings to educate parents that this is happening to our children at an alarming rate.

Parents in the Will County area, and other communities outside of Chicago need to show support and help spread the message that these drugs are killing our kids.

Gil Kerlikowske, director of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), spoke Tuesday in Los Angeles at the California Summit on Opioid Dependence.

His overall message: Keep fighting the fight, but some people need to wake up!

As the Ventura County Star Reports, Kerlikowske discussed the unwise conventional wisdom surrounding heroin use.

“Young people don’t recognize the addictive powers of heroin,” Kerlikowske said. “They think if they snort it or smoke it, they won’t get addicted.”

Kids think they can handle recreational pill use. They get this from their use of marijuana and their mindset that it is a perfectly controlled high. But the mentality doesn’t change when heroin use sets in as well.

Parents need to stay vigilant, and continue discussing drugs with their teens.

It’s a small new source, but it makes a very big impression regarding our addiction to opiates.

Most parents attend community drug forums to hear about the signs of drug abuse.

At a recent event in Southern California, attendees got a surprise look at an addict.

According to the Ventura County Star, the meeting was held last Thursday in Simi Valley. The meeting was just about to wrap up, when an officer leading the meeting, read through questions written by members of the audience.

The last question read, “”Dear Cary,” Please help. I’ve been using heroin for four years, and I can’t get clean.”

Cary Quashen, from Action Family Counseling immediately asked, “Who wrote that?”

A 19-year old man stood up at the back of the room, and received an overwhelming sign of support from the 250 people in attendance.

As the article indicates, the young man discussed the popularity of the so-called farming party.

That’s where teens show up with any kind of pills they can find, and throw them in a bowl. And all of the people at the party dig in, eating unknown prescriptions.

This is what makes these types of meeting so important. This is the second such similar occurrence in about a month. The last one was not very far away in the community of Santa Clarita.

What started as a community effort to raise awareness among parents, ended as a community coming together to save a man’s life.

Many parents in denial, think that their kid would never dry drugs.

Parents need to break that stereotypical image of a drug user. They aren’t a certain race, and the don’t have a certain length of hair. They most certainly can’t be told by their clothing.

We need more of these efforts by communities. They are already successful if they educate parents, but if they can immediately save the life of an addict, they can have instant payoff!

Bath salts became a common terminology after the so-called Causeway Cannibal attack in Miami.

And despite the toxicology report finding no evidence of bath salts, the preliminary reports linking the attack and the substance proved to instill fear into Americans.

Perhaps the myth of that attack being caused by bath salts is making a difference.

An article today in the Huffington Post indicates that bath salt related emergencies are down.

While the manufactured narcotic can still be found in stores, many shop keepers have adhered to the law and discontinued selling them.

Of course like any drug, a ban will only go so far to reduce the use of the substance.

Ridding America of drugs requires the users to quit.

Cartels wouldn’t be importing tons of cocaine, marijuana, heroin, and methamphetamine into this country, if there weren’t people lined up to buy it.

But it is good to see that people are getting the message of the dangers of bath salts. Interesting read and one we recommend to parents.

Santa Clarita is one of the troubled spots for heroin in Southern California.

The sleepy community in Northern Los Angeles county has seen a surge in heroin drug deaths the last two years, and community members congregated last night to discuss the one year anniversary of this community awareness plan.

What the people are doing there is tremendous.    They are determined to kick heroin out of the city.

YOUR TEEN COULD BE USING HEROIN AND YOU WOULDN’T DETECT IT UNTIL THEY’RE HOOKED. DON’T GUESS. THE TEENSAVERS HOME DRUG TEST KIT WILL HELP DETECT YOUR FAMILY PROBLEM

KHTS, AM-1220, covered the story on its’ website hometownstation.com

As the coverage indicates, the city’s “Heroin Kills: The High is a Lie” program was created after 5 heroin related deaths in 2011. This year the city has already seen 6 heroin related deaths, and the deaths of 7 others have been attributed to opiate use.

The most dramatic moment of the meeting was when a young man stood up in the middle of a Q and A session with the panel of guests.

California’s lawmakers in both the house and the senate have approved a new law giving immunity to 9-1-1 callers who report an overdose.

Introduced by Assemblyman Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco), the bill, Assembly Bill 472 provides that neither the overdose victim nor a person who seeks emergency treatment for him shall be charged with the crime of drug possession, being under the influence of drugs, or drug possession, provided the drugs are for personal use.

Other similar “Good Samaritan” bills are on the books in nine other states.

In asking his colleagues to vote for the measure, Ammiano noted that more people die from drug overdoses than car crashes.

“This is not going soft on crime,” said Assemblyman Donald Wagner (R-Irvine). While he added that he does not condone drug use, he said it was necessary to “overlook some indiscretions for the greater good.”

“It’s critically important to save lives,” said Assemblywoman Kristen Olsen (R-Modesto). “This bill doesn’t condone drug behavior.”

Excellent work in California.

The key to remember is trying to send out the anti-drug message before teens and young adults get to the point where they are overdosing on medications.

The phrase “getting stupid,” used to refer teens getting high, may be more of a reality than those adolescent smokers think.

A joint study between a London University and Duke University found that teens who smoked pot in their adolescence, had lower IQ scores as adults.

They were also significantly more likely to have attention and memory problems in later life, than their peers who abstained.

The study focused on data from over 1,000 people in New Zealand, who have been followed through their lives since being born in 1972 or 1973.

Participants were asked about cannabis usage when they were 18, 21, 26, 32 and 38. Their IQ was tested at 13 and 38. In addition, each nominated a close friend or family member, who was asked about attention and memory problems.

The study, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, found persistent users, those who had smoked 4 times a week or more, had dropped 8 IQ points over the 25 years from 13 to age 38.

With the recent studies of marijuana as a possible gateway drug, this study may be another strong indicator why parents need to reinforce the message that marijuana is bad for children.
