PCP Rears its’ Ugly Head.

Authorities are talking about the role of PCP use in two violent crimes.

PCP is a rarely talked about drug, a powerful hallucinogen well past it’s hey day.

You want to score drugs? Sure there’s marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy, methamphetamine, and heroin in full supply.

But PCP is not a common drug. Teens aren’t experimenting with it, and it’s not typically found on drug dealers, and in major drug busts.

But there have been some eerie and violent encounters recently and the people identified in the crimes say they have used “wet.” Wet, leek, or dip can either be a joint mixed with PCP or a joint dipped in embalming fluid.

Two violent attacks in New Jersey in the last few weeks have resulted in the deaths of two kids, while a third child clings to life.

NJ.com takes a look at the cases in a story that can be found HERE.

The Los Angeles Times reports that Rodney King died in an accidental drowning, but that the troubled historical figure had large amounts of drugs and alcohol in his system.

King, whose violent arrest in 1991, was a central element in the L.A. riots.

The avid swimmer drowned in the pool at his Rialto home after slipping into a “state of drug and alcohol-induced delirium,” according to a coroner report.

Along with alcohol, toxicology tests found traces of marijuana, PCP and cocaine.

King had a long battle with drugs and alcohol. He tried numerous time to find a cure for his disease, even appearing on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.

A story out of Utica that surrounds a teenager and his alert father who called authorities after the teen had frightening reaction from taking a variety of drugs.

According to the Utica Dispatch Observer, the teen took a combination of bath salts, PCP, LSD, and cocaine.

The father sat with the teen and was concerned after the teen cut his leg so he could taste his own blood and declared thoughts of ripping babies apart so that he can eat them.  He called authorities and waited for them to arrive.

Scary behavior, and this can be the outcome after taking a mix of high powered drugs.

Keep your teens clean and away from drugs and alcohol.

 

For some parents, giving your child a Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit is a no-brainer.

For others, it is a decision filled with emotion.

 

No matter where you stand, it is key you eliminate the cheating.

 

You need to make sure that you know how to recognize whether or not your child has tampered with it.

The first indicator is the drug test temperature strip. The Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit will indicate a proper specimen if the temperature reads between 90 and 100 degrees. You will see a green dot appeared.

Here are before and after photos. You will see in the second photo the 92 degree dot is lighter than the others. This is important as it only took a few seconds for the temperature to drop from 98 to 92. Seeing the temperature immediately after giving the test is critical.

Teensavers Temp Strip Before Test

This is the first item that needs to be looked at after test is given.

The Teensavers temp strip after the test

Notice the 92 is slightly illuminated. This green dot gives you real-time accuracy on the temperature of the specimen. If your test does not have a green dot within seconds after taking it, a foreign substance may have been used.

Why is temperature so important?

Because it practically ensures that the specimen used in the test was from the human body at that given time.

Believe it or not, but kids buy a lot of urine. They get it from friends, and they buy it online. The hope that parents use an inexpensive foreign test found online that doesn’t detect temperature.

The Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit prevents teens from substituting urine as their own.

The other trick drug users do is have a friend or sibling go before them in the toilet, and not flush. Then the teens dip the cup in the toilet and use diluted urine.

The temperature strip would catch this, as the tempertaure of the specimen decreases rapidly after voiding into the cup.

The other thing you need to look for is to make sure that2 lines are present in these tests. The first line is a control line. That line ensures that the test wasn’t adulterated.

What will teens use to adulterate a test? That answer is as easy as what do you have in the area where your child is taking the test.

Typically that’s a family bathroom.

I’ve already mentioned the toilet a a source. There’s also a bath/shower/sink faucet.

Hand soap, perfume, and eye drops are also among the substances substituted for urine.

How can you be sure your teen used only his or her urine?

There’s a reason why the Teensavers Home Drug Test is easiest to use and easiest to read.

This is a completely negative 12 panel test

2 lines indicate negatives. The first line is the “control” line which assures that the test was taken accurately with human urine and no other foreign substances. The second line indicates a negative result.

This test screens for marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine, amphetamine, pcp, opiates, ecstasy, benzodiazepines, barbituates, oxycodone, methadone, and tricyclic antidepressants.

You will see the middle four drugs here are PCP, MDMA (ecstasy), BAR (barbiturates), and BZO (Benzodiazepines).

They all have two lines. They are all negative tests.

What if the line is faint? Any sign of a secondary line is a negative result.

The one thing you want to look for is a test with no lines.

That is an adulterated test, which means there is a substance that is not urine in the test cup.

You would need to rescreen your teen in the event you get a test with no lines whatsoever.

A drug raid at a college campus isn’t really much of a surprise.   But seeing kids caught with a cornucopia of drugs at Texas Christian University may open a few eyes.

The bust happened Wednesday morning at campus, and all of the people arrested are current students at the school.

The busts were the result of a six month operation in which those arrested sold drugs to undercover narcotics officers.

“There is no doubt, all of those arrested today, are drug dealers,” said Steve McGee, TCU Chief of Police.

McGee also revealed that the investigation began after his department received tips from students and parents.

“This shows that TCU students, staff and the community will not tolerate this kind of behavior on the TCU campus,” said McGee.

McGee said those arrested were selling marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy in both powder and pill form, LSD and prescription drugs including Xanax, hydrocodone and other opiates similar to Oxycontin.

Some of those arrested were players on the TCU football team.   This serves as a reminder to parents that students with good grades or star athletes can become drug abusers.

You can bet that most of these kids didn’t just pick this habit up when they went off to college.   Some of them started at a younger age.    This is the time for parents to realize how much work is needed to help keep their kids drug free.

It’s as simple as conversation and home drug testing.   The Teensavers Home Drug Test Kit 12-panel drug test can detect many popular drug choices.

Amphetamines (speed) are drugs that are being abuse by an alarming number of our teens in Orange County.  My estimate is that 80% of the teenagers that I have worked with who are abusing drugs; have abused amphetamines.  These drugs are known on the street as speed, meth, uppers, crystal, crank, coke, free base, toot, blow, flake, snow and lady.

Amphetamines are found in pill form, powder form and crystallized rock.  Our teens are abusing this drug in greater numbers than ever before.  It is cheap and easy to get.

When a person ingests this drug many things can happen:

Dilated (enlarged) pupils

Rapid breathing, speech, pulse and movement

Decreased appetite

Insomnia

Euphoria

Impaired judgment

Paranoia or suspiciousness

Rage

Hallucinations

Seizures

Stroke, chest pain, heart attack or death

Symptoms of withdrawal from amphetamines may include:

Fatigue

Depression

Cravings

Hypersomnia (not sleeping)

Mood swings

Lethargy

Cramps or other pain

This drug has become popular among many teenage girls because it decreases appetite and helps to induce weight loss.

Chronic use of amphetamines can lead to psychosis and many teens have become paranoid to the point of thinking they are being followed or persecuted.  Some have become depressed to the point of attempting suicide.

Amphetamines are highly addictive, and unlike alcohol and other drugs, they “hook” kids faster and deeper.

Our courts in Orange County are inundated with crimes committed by people who were under the influence of methamphetamine.

Here is a list of symptoms that parents can use to determine if their child is abusing drugs, including amphetamines.

Drastic change in grades

Using unfamiliar or suspicious language

Drastic personality changes

Loss of interest in activities that were recently important

Truant, suspended or missing school

Possession of drugs or paraphernalia

Avoiding eye contact

Parents are missing cash or personal items at home

Being secretive about certain friends or activities

Arguments about alcohol or drug use

As a parent of a teenager, you should immediately drug test your child if you

checked three or more symptoms on these checklists.  Use the tensavers drug test.  It’s the most relaible test on the market.  Check out www.myeensavers.com
