WHAT and Skittles…? [McGehee]
For some, life isn’t all beer and Skittles.
Doctors say teenagers have a false belief that prescription drugs give a safer high than illegal drugs. Many teens think it’s alright to eat them with candy until they end up in the hospital.
It’s becoming all-the-rage for teens to have Skittle’s parties, also called pharm parties — pharm being short for pharmaceuticals. The sugar load isn’t the problem. It’s when teens bring prescription drugs to the party and put them in the candy bowl then eat the mixture by the handful.
Somehow I doubt this is limited to Chattanooga.
