Group alerts parents about unexpected places teens stash drugs
There are troubling products being sold that could help teenage children hide addictions in plain sight.
Lakeland High School counselor Jodi Weisberger says household products designed with hidden, hollow compartments have flooded the market in recent months.
She says an alarming number of students in northern Westchester are trying them out.
The drug awareness group, Alliance for Safe Kids, is fighting back by creating a "'Hidden in Plain Sight" exhibit at the high school so parents can see the many unexpected places drugs are being stashed. Deceptive items include shaving cream cans, suntan lotion bottles, soda bottles and computer mice.
The alliance holds a wide range of programming and drug prevention education throughout the area, but their funding grant is running dry next year.
