It also includes free lab confirmation to help families understand what amount of drug their kids are using.

The Teensaver Home Drug Test Kit and other tests are available over the counter at most mass market and drug stores.

In a recent article in the OC Register, Stahovich was quoted as saying, “Drugs don’t discriminate; they don’t go after people who have licenses or insurance, they don’t stay away from kids who earn straight A’s. They target everyone."

He urges parents to get their heads out of the sand and see if their kids are doing drugs. And if they are not, then random drug testing can be a strong deterrent for future use.

Yes, this is true! There are numerous teenagers those are taking drugs in this level of age. To me there should be a stick low against the drug supplier. I see there are many drug companies those advertising news media. It's a big lose of teenagers growth.
