When it comes to teens and pills use, they typically begin experimenting with someone they know and trust.

The much feared “stranger in the alley” doesn’t really exist when it comes to teens trying drugs for the first time.

Siblings, friends, classmates, teammates, even parents can turn a preteen, teen, or young adult onto drugs.

But once that habit extends beyond recreational use, to a full blown addiction, addicts will buy pretty much anything from anyone.

The new “stranger in the alley” is the opiate pusher online.

There’s a story today about a massive crackdown on pill peddlers on the internet.

According to the New York Post, NYPD officers arrested 21 people.

Some have been sentenced already after undercover officers made multiple buys.

It’s a reminder that authorities are on the look out, and pill pushed will be caught.
