U.S. Teens Turning to Store-bought Highs

In a "good-news-bad-news" twist to the war on drugs, the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) reports that U.S. teens are turning away from use of street drugs like marijuana and cocaine, in favor of abusing prescription drugs, and over-the-counter cough and cold medicines.
According to the ONDCP report, Teens and Prescription Drugs (.pdf), while illegal drug use among teens has dropped by 23 percent over the last five years, the number of new teen abusers of prescription drugs have caught up with new users of street drugs.

Parents: You Can Prevent Prescription Drug Abuse

LANCASTER -- You’ve forgotten about those leftover painkillers in the back of your medicine cabinet, but your teen may not have. Almost 600 Lancaster County youth in grades 6 through 12 have illegally used prescription pain medications (such as Vicodin® and OxyContin®) in their lifetimes, ac-cording to the 2005 Pennsylvania Youth Survey. Even more have abused stimulants, such as Ritalin®, intended to treat attention deficit disorder, while 350 misused tranquilizers (such as Xanax® and Valium®).

Prescription Drug Abuse A Growing Problem

According to Follansbee police, prescription drug abuse is a growing problem in the Ohio Valley.

Officers said a number of people try to file false reports that their prescription drugs were stolen.
Now, officers require those people to take lie detector tests but said people rarely show up for the polygraph.
Because of pain pill theft and forged prescriptions, pharmacists said they must keep an eye on their customers.

Aldo Crisante of the Follansbee Pharmacy said, "We don't treat anyone as a criminal, but if we're not familiar with them, we may give them another glance. We're also familiar with doctors' handwriting. We look for strange quantities of the medication."
