HOUSTON – You know your kids better than anyone else.
You love them, you live with them.
So, would you know if they were hiding illegal drugs in your own home, inside their bedrooms?
Before you answer, you need to know that there is a new, internet marketplace out there where drug addiction experts say kids are buying all kinds of ingenious stashing devices that are specifically designed to help them hide drugs right under your nose.
They are cheap, usually around $10, easy to order, and they look exactly like every day, household items.
Here’s a list of just some of these stashing devices
- Fake lint rollers
- Fake soda pop cans
- Fake plants
- Fake bottles of water
- Fake cans of powdered cleanser
- Fake belts with hidden compartments
- Fake books
- Fake hair brushes
- Fake watches
- Fake deodorant sticks for men
“These are items can be used to hide marijuana, pills, powders. They look absolutely identical to the real products. You cannot tell the difference," says Patrick Hagler with The Council On Recovery in Houston.
