Man Arrested for Selling Drugs Near Daycare Center
Do you ever worry that your kids might become addicted to drugs? Do you ever think about how someone could introduce them to drugs, even at a very young age? In a haunting story to come out of Maine recently, a 27-year-old man was arrested for selling prescription painkiller pills near a daycare, according to sources. He's facing charges of aggravated trafficking in a scheduled drug, with a $12,000 bail.
Do you want to do more to keep drugs away from your children? You can't control where drug dealers have their operations, but you can control how much access your children have to drugs at home. Many addictions begin at home, especially for prescription pills, such as Percocet, Vicodin, and OxyContin. Experts recommend the following steps to prevent prescription medication:
•Take inventory of your prescription and over-the-counter medicine.
•Secure your medicine chest.
•Dispose of your unused, unwanted, and expired medicine in your home or at an American Medicine
•Chest Challenge Disposal site.
•Take your medicine(s) exactly as prescribed.
•Talk to your children about the dangers of prescription drug abuse.
Even in a world filled with illegal drugs like meth, bath salts, marijuana, cocaine, and PCP, prescription drug misuse is one of the greatest dangers. They can be easier to obtain than illegal drugs because they are distributed through legitimate channels. However, far more deadly than illegal drugs. Without a doctor to direct them, users can mix drugs, overdose, or otherwise put themselves in grave danger.
