North Carolina parents shocked to learn children are abusing over-the-counter drug

Parents are shocked that kids are finding creative ways to get high?  Parents were kids once too and need to be aware of the newest trends and tactics that are popular among today's youth.





North Carolina parents shocked to learn children are abusing over-the-counter drug | abc13.com: "One Triangle dad noticed his son's behavior change and feared he was on something. But when a drug test came back negative, he kept looking for answers.

"I went like a tornado in his room and found about three bottles of the Robitussin, about two or three boxes of that cold and cough medicine," he said. "I was infuriated as a parent.""

Cough sryup making a comeback

Unfortunately drugs are cyclic--a generation uses them, then they tire of it and parents take a stance against it and then the next drug revolves around--it goes from speed, to heroin, to party drugs, to prescription drugs, to glue, and then cycles around again. This is something we need to stay on top of, but not be shocked by. kids will always find ways to do drugs--and hopefully we will find out and take action before it kills them...





I-Team Troubleshooter: North Carolina parents shocked to learn children are abusing over-the-counter drug | abc11.com: "In addition to Skittles or Triple-C, teenagers are calling the drug Tussin, Robotripping, and Dex. But essentially, it is simply over-the-counter cough syrup, often mixed with soda or other drugs such as marijuana.

Abusers are after the active ingredient in regular over-the-counter cough syrup, dextromethorphan, or DXM.

Your Face as a Long-term Alcoholic or in the Press, your face on Meth

I like this online tool. Good for "rehabs.com"   Get your son or duaghter (or self) and upload a pic. Then see what taking drugs does to you!

Thanks to New York Daily news for photo.
Your Face as a Long-term Alcoholic: "Alcohol maintains a near ubiquitous presence in the daily lives of many of us—it is easily purchased at restaurants and convenience stores, present in many celebratory and spiritual ceremonies and, of course, heavily featured in movies and television. Perhaps as a result, alcoholism and the damaging effects of alcohol abuse are frequently downplayed or overlooked altogether."
