Doggie Drug Bust!

Alert police work by a Pennsylvania officer and his four legged partner led to the arrest of two men and the discovery of nearly $12 million dollars in drugs.

The officer noticed the men looking suspicious Sunday, and pulled their big rig over for numerous violations in Bensalem, PA.

Inside, the K9 officer found methamphetamine and heroin in the cab’s sleeping compartment.

Removing these drugs off the streets may have saved a life or two, and stopped a few cases of addiction before they started.

These drugs were headed to the Delaware Valley, and officers believed the narcotics came from Mexico.

Fortunately, the alert officers made the arrest before these drugs arrived at their destination.

For all of the people that argue that the drug war is a waste, you see that small busts like this can have a big impact on saving the people in a community.

Teensavers parent alert.

A new study is out today and it sheds light on a growing problem in our middle schools. Parents acknowledge that more kids are turning to prescription drugs.

The study was a statewide survey conducted by the Partnership for a Drug-Free New Jersey found New Jersey. It polled parents who estimate that approximately three in ten middle school students are abusing prescription or over-the-counter drugs (26%).

The PDFNJ annual Tracking Study of Parent Attitude and Behavior in Alcohol and Drug Abuse, found that about eight in ten parents feel that kids get prescription and over-the-counter drugs out of medicine cabinets, either from their own home medicine cabinet (68%) or from a friend’s medicine cabinet (11%).

Parents are taking steps to limit their child’s exposure to unused, unwanted, and expired medicine.

  • Four in ten (39%) parents have taken an inventory of their prescription and OTC medicine in the past two months, with the majority (60%) not having done so.
  • Just about one in five (17%) of parents say they have disposed of unused, unwanted, and expired medicine at a local disposal site
  • Two in five parents (44%) have disposed of their unused, unwanted and expired medicine in their household trash.
  • One in four (23%) have flushed unwanted/expired medicine down a sink or drain.
  • Just about one in ten (9%) lock their medicine cabinet.

These findings are consistent with the message of the PDFNJ’s American Medicine Chest Challenge, a statewide public health media campaign designed to raise awareness of prescription drug abuse and the steps necessary to prevent it within their home.

The study finds that the number of New Jersey parents who report having expired medicines in their home has dropped from 42% to 35%, suggesting perhaps that the campaign to safely disposed of unused, unwanted or expired medicine in home has had some effect.
