This recent story caught my eye. Just shows the creativity of today's youth! Who wants to sell drugs the old fashioned way, not in a baggie apparently, but in brownies baked in mom/dad's kitchen, using mom/dad's favorite baking dish, maybe even with the brownie mix bought to make for the kids who hang out at the house!
Teens are creative, you have to give them that. Because teens are often caught between feeling like an adult yet wanting to act like a child they find all kinds of ways to disguise and sneak what they know they are not supposed to have. So now its pot in brownies, and booze in gummi bears and jello, iced tea bottles, water bottles and energy drinks! Maybe parents will have to start tasting anything that comes in or leaves your house. "Hey, honey I'm dying of thirst, can I have a sip of your___________. And ooh, brownies, I want one!!
I guess the best you can do, is let your teen know that you know that pot and booze now comes in all shapes and sizes. That all this stuff really scares you, because when it doesn't look like what it is, then teens think it's not so bad. But booze, whether in red bull or iced tea is still brain altering as is pot in brownies. "Candy is dandy but liquor is quicker,"has a double meaning when the candy is liquor!
