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.

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.


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.

Authorities busted a narcotics ring in Colorado Springs, six other states and Mexico and law enforcement officers said that kids are among the buyers of the cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, and marijuana confiscated in the bust.


Fourteen people are in jail, as part of the seven state operation.

The investigation revealed that a number of recent burglary crimes were linked to the drugs, as more kids addicted to heroin are becoming desperate for drug money.

Among the drugs confiscated were, eleven pounds of heroin, ten pounds of methamphetamine, more than a kilo of cocaine, and six-hundred pounds of marijuana.

Parents should not be fooled. Kids are not just dabbling in pot smoking. They are among the people abusing cocaine and meth and they are a growing sector in the heroin popularity.

Authorities in Southern California have broken up a methamphetamine ring that funneled drugs and money to and from Mexico through the cities of Ontario and Pomona.

Authorities arrested 17 people early Thursday, and have charged a total of 27 people in connection with the drug ring.

The methamphetamine came into the country in liquid form by plane, cars, and boats. Gang members recrystallized the drugs at an Ontario home.

A U.S. Attorney associated with the case said that dealers will selling several pounds of meth per day, at a profit of $9,000 per pound.

Numerous other suspects are still on the loose, but authorities believe they made a dent in this operation.

It doesn’t seem that surprising to the people at Teensavers, but a researcher with an extensive background in medicine says he’s surprised that his data shows that kids have great access to illicit drugs.

Doctor Evan Wood conducted a new study which focused on drug accessibility.

The findings, of course, were that kids had great access to drugs, and they were not seeking out just marijuana.

The study conducted by the B.C. Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS found that teens and young adults had no problems obtaining heroin, crack, cocaine, crystal meth, as well as marijuana.

The study covered two groups of people in 2007; one between 14 and 26 years of age who had used an illicit drug other or in addition to marijuana at least 30 days before joining the study.

The other consisted of adult drug users over 16 years old who injected drugs at least a month before the survey.

Participants of both studies were asked “How difficult would it be for you to get drugs right now in the area you typically obtain your drugs?”

The responses narrowed in to the 10 minute mark.

This doesn’t seem that surprising. With cellphones and social media, it’s much easier for kids to find a friend who can lead them to drugs.

Parents need to realize that everyone knows someone who can score drugs, and this is very prevalent in high schools.

Whether you are north or south of the border, it really doesn’t matter.

I bet this same survey applied in the United States, would yield the same results.

The best way to protect your teen is to have regular conversations about the dangers of drugs.

Prescription drugs, while legal, are often perceived as “safe” by teens.

Just a few instances of experimentation can lead a teen to an opiate addiction.

The best line of defense is the Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit.

Made specifically for families, the Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit screens for the most popular combinations of drugs, and the kits are grouped based on treatment trends.

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.

To hear more from the police on the bust, and see a photo of the stash, head to philly.com by clicking on this link.

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.

When it comes to the health of your children, your family wants a home drug test kit you can trust.

After all, our kids mean everything to us.

The Teensavers is not only 99% accurate, but it is one of only four home drug test kits approved by the FDA for over-the-counter sales.

Why is this important?

-Ease of Use: The FDA only approves tests for OTC when those products give parents proper step by step instructions on how to administer the tests properly. Cheap tests found online or in dollar stores are messy and can be confusing to use, and confusing to read.

-Zero Tolerance Cutoff Levels: Cheap tests have drug levels that vary widely. Testing for drugs is difficult when the detection levels are so high, you’d have to be practically overdosing to register. For example, THC levels set by the government for testing are at 2,000 nanograms. Manufacturers are allowed a +/- 50% range, which means you could be testing your child for THC and the test you use is actually set at 3,000 nanograms. The Teensavers cutoff levels are the most strict. The cutoff level for THC in the Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit is 50 nanograms.

Accuracy: In addition to having very tolerant cutoff levels, imported home drug test kits can often give you a wide range of cutoff levels. Within the same batch, you might find THC levels ranging from cup to cup from 1,000 to 3,000. Each Teensavers Home Drug Test kit is 50 nanograms. There is no spectrum of tests. It’s correct science and the Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit is Made in America!


-The Next Step Towards Finding a Solution: Cheap tests don’t provide you with the next step if your son or daughter’s drug test shows a presumptive positive. The Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit includes a free lab confirmation kit. You know which opiates your teen test positive for. You know how high the nanogram count is for each specific drug. And it will help you understand the next step for your child.

Beware of products that you find for cheap on eBay from sellers who can’t answer your questions. Watch out for online sites with a large inventory of different tests and products. You often find the same products selling cheap drug tests, also sell masking agents for people to hide their drug use. Don’t dive in for the cheap test at your neighborhood discount chain or dollar store. Those products are often close to expiration and typically cheap imported products.

Buying and using a home drug test kit can be a difficult decision for your family.

No family wants to see a preliminary positive result, but if they do get one, they know they have a chance of correcting the problem before it is too late. This is key!

What good is getting a false negative? You don’t want to think that your teen is drug-free when they are using semi-regularly. That’s the important of buying a reliable and accurate product like the Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit.
