Experts have an alert for parents as the school year begins: there are brand new ways kids are taking and hiding drugs.
”Drug use typically triples between 6th grade and 8th grade,” according to Stephanie Siete of Community Bridges, a Valley substance abuse, treatment and detox center.
From her own collection she reveals the hiding spots for drugs, including water bottles and energy drinks that twist open to reveal a hidden compartment for storage.
But she said the latest trends include “snorting vodka shots.”
More graphic yet, she said teens are doing anal beer bongs and soaking tampons in vodka.
