Drug Abuse In Teens: Online Drug Abuse Identification Help


Teen drug abuse is at an all time high, but not in the same way that most people might assume. Parents are accustomed to hearing about teens doing everything from huffing chemicals to smoking weed, popping ecstasy, and even injecting heroin. However, with the international development during 2003-2004 of illegal online drug dealing operations, teens are able to order potentially dangerous prescription medications off of the internet without a prescription.

Savvy businessmen who operate small online pharmacy companies settled offshore are peddling prescription drugs to anyone who has the cash to pay for them. In some cases, the customers don't even get the real medications, but improperly manufactured fakes. Popular drugs sold without prescription include Hydrocodone, Vicodin, Lortab, Adderall, and opiate-like drugs.

If you are living in America, it's likely that you might have found a mysterious pill, tablet or capsule tablet at some point during your parenting years. Every day, parents find strange pills in the rooms of their sons and daughters while cleaning. If you never spend any time in your teens' rooms, there is a good chance that you are not seeing something important; especially if your child spends a lot of time partying at night.

Do you need help identifying a drug that you've found? We are here to help you! Please ask for assistance at our drug identification forum over at Shoppe.MD. We are here 24 hours, 7 days a week to research for you and find the answer.
