Kids are a source of worry for every parent. You look after them for years, and you hope that they end up turning our alright. Of course, if your kids end up taking drugs and getting caught, they could end up facing a trail for their errors. Indeed, government-sponsored drug education programs tend to be somewhat weak. Possession of the drug itself is a dead giveaway.
Alcohol is the most used drug by teens and the biggest drug problem our teenagers face today. Unfortunately, many parents underestimate the dangers alcohol poses to kids. The U. Surgeon General surmises about 5, kids under 21 die every year as a result of underage drinking. Alcohol poisoning, car crashes, homicides, and suicides are among the increased risks teens face when they've been drinking.
