why as a parent you need to know the street name of drugs now

 Why as a Parent you Need to Know the Street Name of Drugs Now 

  •  Why as a Parent you Need to Know the Street Name of Drugs Now, because, many children particularly our adolescents listen to music that their parents don’t bother to listen to.  Some artist use curses and street names to sing about drugs. There are drug names that sound harmless and might not trigger a parent’s concern when heard ex. Charlie, Aunt Nora, cotton candy. Children like to emulate his/her heroes/heroines. There could be a risk of your child purchasing that drug that is being mentioned in a hit song. Sometimes our innocent youth don’t understand what the words mean but they find out. 

I was gonna clean my room until I got high/ I gonna get up and find the broom but then I got high/My room is still messed up and I know why (Yeah, hey!)/ Because I got high, because I got high, because I got high.  Artist Afroman

  • There has always been slang that youth used and adults didn’t understand. There is new slang with each generation.  Parents be aware when you hear your child speaking with peers. If you hear a word used that makes the sentence not make sense to you ask for an explanation then Google it. This is just one small task as a parent we need to take to keep our children safe. Don’t be ignorant of the language your child may be sharing with his/her peers. Don’t see it as intrusive better safe than sorry.  

This list is not all inclusive but it will help you raise your awareness. As more comes to our attention this list will be updated.

    I got very lucky that my son doesn’t want anything to do with drugs or alcohol. This is a very helpful reference list for everyone, not just parents.

      Hi Ruth, you and your family are blessed. Koodos to your son he must be very smart and he has great role models because peer pressure is tough to get through.

    Hi Lydia,
    Wow this is a long list of names… it scary how easy is to get your hands on drugs now days
    and how many lives are wasted because of it.
    Thank you for sharing!

      Hello Emi, yes it is scary but what scares me more is that still, too many parents are in denial about what is going on in their homes and communities. It is time for parents to stop measuring the quality of their parenting on the behaviors of their children. Get educated on substance abuse learn the signs and symptoms and be prepared. Thanks for your comment.

    Yeah, drugs have many names. But medical Marijuana does help. If they take the THC out and use the CDB part of the drug, it has many benefits.

    WOW. What a list! My son is 20 and ever since he was 14 I have been in his face about drugs. Talking about it ever younger than that … now I’m in his face about drinking. Parents have to know these things. My son “hates” me for nagging, but I don’t see him indulging either … tough job being parents, and tough being a kid these days .. so much peer pressure. Eye opening to see all these words used … thanks!

      Hey Lesly, It’s his job to find you annoying at his age lol. I remember being so upset with my parents but I would visit some friends whose parents were more liberal at first thinking they were cool. Then I saw just how much my friends got into trouble and was silently grateful that mine had a leash on me, but I was taking that thought to the grave. lol Thank you as always for being a supporter of ATN!

    Hi Lydia, my friend was a parole officer and created a blog on drugs with helpful and informative posts, much like these. It is so important that we all take notice of what is happening around drugs, bless you for bringing these issues to everyone’s attention. The more people there are spreading information and advice the better chance young people will have of being helped and advised by adults who have some knowledge to give.

    Enjoy the journey!

      Hi, Mandy you are correct with the knowledge we can help our youths and community. We can’t as parents and neighbors leave this problem to the health professionals and police. By then it can be too late. Prevention is the key and I am glad that the government is allocating more money to teach our children about drug abuse in our schools. If can would you mind give me the link to your friends’ blog I would like to introduce myself and talk about perhaps contributing to each other’s blog? Thanks for stopping by.
