Unless you’re at an anti-drug rally, or you’re sitting in a room getting high with a group, you very rarely get two people in the room completely agree with each other on the topic of drugs.

Some say, legalize marijuana, and crack down on the rest of the illicit drugs. Others say the current ban is not enough, and alcohol should be banned once again. There are also those who feel that the war on drugs is a loss and everything should be legalized.

Today drug dealers are speaking out against crack cocaine. The people who push product in Rio de Janeiro say they won’t sell it.

Brazilian police in the region take credit for stopping the sale of crack, but drug kingpins say that it was their decision to stop producing the drug.

They say it destabilizes the neighborhoods there.

You can read about it here at Fox Latino.

It’s interesting that dealers would decide that one drug destroys a community over others.

When it comes to teen drug use, it doesn’t matter where and what teens are using.

Drugs are bad for our youth, period.

I’m sure in regions where families make very little money, they accept that their children are involved in the drug trade. If those machine-gun toting kids are bringing home 10 times the family’s income, it puts food on the table, right?

Unfortunately, you have teens here in America that are making money hand over fist selling drugs. Most recently authorities busted a teen in Ohio for running a 3-million dollar operation. He and his student “lieutenants” were turning $20,000 a month in marijuana deals.

Kids need to know that all drugs are bad. Parents need to extend the message.

Teensavers encounter many who argue that drug testing is wrong. But it’s not the kids you hear the arguments from.

It’s the parents.

But more kids are abusing prescription drugs these days, and with more states legalizing marijuana for medicinal purposes, kids have more access to drugs than they ever have before.

The Teensavers Home Drug Test was created to alleviate some of the concerns that parents had when drug testing.

1. Catching experimentation before you see the physical signs. Parents who argue against home drug testing will say “I can tell if my kid is on drugs.” The truth is, drug experimentation typically isn’t caught with the naked eye. Early use usually will leave little indication. You won’t see an immediate slip in grades. You won’t all of the sudden see your child change friends overnight. By the time you typically notice, you’re already addicted. A quick screen can reveal if your child has some sort of narcotic in their system. Maybe they’ve been taking a Xanax from your medicine cabinet.

2. By testing your child privately, a preliminary positive result can keep your problem in the family without school or law enforcement getting involved. You also can be in the room and give it at your discretion, eliminating most of the popular cheats. When you give your child a random drug test, you can do it at 3am or 3pm. They won’t know when it’s coming. When kids try to cheat home drug tests, they usually know when and where the test will happen (at the doctor’s on Monday at noon), and that can allow them to take measures. When you get your child out of bed at 6AM on a Saturday morning, he or she doesn’t have time to drink a special masking agent or get substitute urine. And temperature strips on Teensavers Home Drug Test Kits that you bought online from CVS online pharmacy will show if the urine will catch cheat urine that isn’t body temperature.

3. Free Lab Confirmation gives you specific answers. Many drug tests will give you preliminary answers with little more information. The Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit sold at the drugstore.com provides families with free lab confirmations for all preliminary positive results. You will have the specific nanograms which can help you understand the amount of drugs in a person’s system.

4. Simple to Use. Simple to Read. Many times you have cups where you have to handle urine and dip strips into the urine. Or you may have to shake a cup that explodes all over you. The Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit you may have bought at amazon.com is simple to use and read. Two lines is a negative. One line is a preliminary positive. All you have to do is peel back the label and read. No shaking. No tilting. No dipping. No touching urine. Lock the lid and wait for the results to appear. If the parental guide doesn’t give you enough information, there’s always a Teensavers representative a phone call away 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

5. Catch the drug use immediately. Drugs can stay in the system for up to 72 hours. Kids are more likely to use on the weekend, but parents can always test them on a Sunday, Wednesday and Friday to make sure their teen is clean for the entire week. And when you have the test at home, you give it the hour of the day you want. That can be a big bonus. If your teen comes home on a Tuesday night with glass eyes, you can pull out your Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit you bought at Rite Aid and test them.

6. Potentially Lifesaving Protection for a modest price. Rehabs and treatment facilities can cost anywhere from $20,000 to $100,000. And that’s one treatment session. Many treatment experts believe that detection and treatment at an early age (13,14) can be extremely beneficial in preventing relapse. Conversely, detecting a problem in the late teen years (18,19) treatment is more difficult as those teens typically are stubborn and passionate about their drug use, and have developed close friends and relationships with people who are likely also users. $20 to $40 for a reliable and FDA approved for OTC sales drug test like the Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit (www.myteensavers.com) can end up saving hundreds of thousands of dollars in the long run.

7. Home drug testing can empower your teen and put his or her friends on alert that your home is a drug free home. There’s no mistake when you set the Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit on the counter. It means you are serious about being a drug free family. It also provides your teen with a weapon to say “I can’t try that, my parents test me.” Think your teen doesn’t need that? Think again. 40% of teens in a recent survey said that it is extremely difficult to withstand the peer pressure when it comes to drugs. Arming your teen with visible proof that you will drug test them, provides them with the extra reinforcement to say no. Their friends will notice too. And if your child’s best friend smokes marijuana, that child may be hesitant to mention it to your child, since they’ve seen the Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit on the counter.

8. Catch drug use of all illicit drugs, including prescription drugs. Your child may be honest with you about trying pot. That could be their way of skirting a drug test if they admit to have inhaled. However, what they may tell you, may be to conceal other drug use. Of the 4,000 new drug using teens every day, 2,500 of them abuse prescription drugs for the first time. Their are taking Xanax and Percocet and Oxycontin. Teensavers Home Drug Test Kits can scan for opiate, benzodiazepine, barbiturates, and both amphetamines, and methamphetamine.

Reliability is key when home drug testing.

The Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit is the newest generation of home drug test kits and the #1 recommended brand by addiction specialists.

It is also the winner of the Parent Tested, Parent Approved award!

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.

A new report released this week states that more of our seniors are abusing prescription drugs.

The main reason is that the baby boomer generation is more likely to use drugs than the generation that preceded them.

If you think prescription drug abuse isn’t a problem in our society. Please open your eyes.

Here’s the latest study regarding senior prescription abuse.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) at the National Institutes of Health, the numbers of older substance abusers could continue to rise, due to the aging of the baby boomers, who were more likely than previous generations to have used in their youth.

Medications for a variety of conditions can help older adults maintain health and function, and most older adults take their medications as prescribed. At the same time, abuse of prescription medications — such as painkillers and depressants — and illicit drugs — such as marijuana and cocaine — can be especially harmful for older adults because aging changes how the body and brain handle these substances. “As people get older, it is more difficult for their bodies to absorb and break down medications and drugs,” says Dr. Nora Volkow, director of NIDA. “Abusing these substances can worsen age-related health conditions, cause injuries and lead to addiction.”

Although substance abuse among older adults is preventable and treatable, many older adults may not get the help they need because some common warning signs of abuse, such as sleep problems, falls, and depression, can also be signs of other health conditions. The new topic on NIHSeniorHealth provides tips on behaviors to watch for and appropriate steps to take if a substance abuse problem is suspected. “This topic is an excellent, easy-to-understand overview of a growing problem,” says Dr. Volkow. “It’s a must-read for anyone concerned about in themselves, an older relative or friend.”

Prescription and Illicit is the latest topic to appear on NIHSeniorHealth, joining a roster of nearly 60 research-based health topics of interest to older adults, including exercise and physical activity, safe use of medicines and management of diseases such as stroke, diabetes, osteoporosis and Alzheimer’s disease. A joint effort of the National Institute on Aging and the National Library of Medicine at NIH, NIHSeniorHealth has senior-friendly features such as large print and opened-captioned videos to make the information on the site easy for older adults to see, understand and navigate. Recently redesigned for today’s , NIHSeniorHealth now features a search function that offers users access to an even broader selection of senior-related information.

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.

Drug use at an Exeter New Hampshire high school previous dance has caused the principal to eliminate dances at the school.

DONT GAMBLE ON YOUR TEEN’S BIG NIGHT OUT. HAVE CONFIDENCE BY KEEPING A TEENSAVERS HOME DRUG TEST KIT ON THE COUNTER. IT STARTS WORKING, THE MINUTE YOU SHOW IT TO YOUR TEEN.

The prom is still on, besides that, the kids will have no more dances at Exeter High School. The school’s principal VIctor Sokul just doesn’t believe that school dances are safe anymore.

He cites the school’s previous dance and seven violations for drinking and drug use.

Some current students, and their parents, are outraged by the move.

This is a reminder to parents that proms and other dances are not open invitations for teens to experiment with alcohol and drugs. Many times a parent or relative will supply the alcohol for the teens.

On dance nights, communicate with other parents in the group. Ask your teens questions. Do not allow them to get a limo or hotel. Make sure they are supervised throughout the night.

Most teens use the guise of a school dance for a night of drinking and drug use. They made show up, eat dinner, and snap a photo, then they are gone. They go back to the hotel where they prepartied, and continue fueling their intoxication.

Don’t gamble on your teen’s future.

Kids have access to drugs.

Sometimes they go seeking them. Sometimes they accidentally find them. Sometimes they become drug users just by being in the room.

In Connecticut, a kindergarten student had a most unique set of items for show and tell when he came to school on Monday; heroin.

The boy wore his step-father’s jacket to school, and unknowingly was transporting 50 bags of heroin.

When he brought them out for show and tell, the teacher phoned the principal, who then phoned authorities.

When the 35-year-old Santos Roman showed up to retrieve the jacket and the heroin inside, police were waiting for him.

State services are caring for the boy until other relatives are located.

These sorts of stories are not rare. They happen more than people thing. Kids find substances and bring them to school. We’ve seen marijuana, cocaine, pills, and heroin brought to school by an innocent child.

These parents are surely setting bad examples for their kids.

There is no word on whether or not the kid had any drugs in his system. That certainly was not reporter by local media outlets in Bridgeport.

This story comes on the heels of a Las Cruces, New Mexico couple arrested after their children tested positive for cocaine.

Eric Lee Estrada, 30, and Stacey Carreras, 26, face four countes of negligent child abuse.

Apparently the couple was smoking cocaine and possibly doing so in the presence of their children.

Los Angeles tried to do the right thing.

The County Department of Health tried to take a proactive stance in the wake of a teen’s death.     A 15-year-old girl died last summer during the Electric Daisy Festival at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.     The Dept. of Health put out a release earlier this week, giving people who attend raves, a “to-do” list on how to best treat your body, while using the illegal drug.     Dennis Romero, with the LaWeekly broke the story.   You can read it, and see a photo of the “warning” here.

Many immediately questioned the logic behind what appeared to be an endorsement of Ecstasy use at Los Angeles raves.       It certainly did not attempt to dissuade people from using  Ecstasy.   In fact, it gave guidelines how to best ride the wave of the Ecstasy use.

These tips included, periodic resting, drinking lots of water, and keeping an eye on your friends.

But LA, which tried to do the right thing, is already making changes.   It appears the criticism was too much.   FoxNews says that LA will take a much stronger stance against the drug use.   You can read their full story here:

Los Angeles County tried to do what was best for a crowd of teens and young adults, who most definitely will be using drugs at raves.     It cannot stop the attendees from using drugs, but the county tried to inform first time drug takers.   As a parent, you’d hope that the 15-year-old who died, was not a long-time Ecstasy user.     But as many say in the drug treatment field, all it takes is one time to overdose.

This is a message for parents who allow their kids to attend these all night events.    A Teensavers home drug test kit. You cannot be with your child every step of the way.   But you can ask questions, and demand answers.   And if you are not satisfied, you can drug test your child.      A 12-panel Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit tests for Ecstasy (MDMA), as well as cocaine, marijuana, PCP, Meth, Amphetamines, Benzodiazapines, Baribiturates, Oxycodone, Methadone, TCA’s, and Opiates.

Isn’t $40 worth the peace of mind, that your child is not using drugs?
