I have been following the letters that have circulated through newspapers in regards to kids and illegal drugs. We as parents need to look at the legal drugs our children are using. Teenagers are now doing "the Robo" as it is called on the street. They drink cough and cold medicine until they are in animation, like an LSD trip.
The kids are doing more so-called legal drugs that they can obtain from their parents' medicine cabinets. We need to deal with the marijuana and
illegal drugs but parents need to watch their child for signs of abuse of the cough and cold medicines also. These drug mixtures are on the rise and could be affecting your child, so that they have to feel the need to fit in with the "in" crowd.
