Have you ever gone through your teen’s pockets because you suspected drugs? Sadly, any teen who wants to hide drugs can do it so well that you wouldn’t be able to find it. That does not mean that every teen is an addict but if you see unusual behaviour accompanied with changes in appearance, clothing, the kind of friends s/he has, it wouldn’t harm to check.
With Internet access, most kids can do a quick search online at forums that talk about drug use and get innovative ideas on how to hide drugs. Some of those hiding places include –
- Inside a dried-out marker
- Behind anelectrical outlet
- Inside a disposable lighter
- Inside air conditioner ducts
- Inside old CD cases
- Inside electronic gadgets
- Inside a lipstick or deodorant case
There are hundreds of products available for easy concealment.
If you have a young teen, start to teach them how dangerous drugs can be.
