Tired of getting carded while buying cold medicine? Take a look at the drugs kids are actually abusing:
“Although modest declines also were found for amphetamines, methamphetamine, steroids and alcohol, researchers were troubled by the steady rates of high abuse for prescription painkillers.
In 2005, 9.5 percent of 12th graders reported using Vicodin and 5.5 reported using OxyContin within the past year.
‘Considering the addictive potential of (OxyContin),’ Johnston said, ‘these are disturbing high rates of use.'”
The only thing I find more disturbing than people randomly abusing synthetic heroin without concern for side effects, is the anti-drug crusaders who seem to have no problem with this. These prescription drugs are dangerous, but far easier to get ahold of then pot.
