Now that’s a net addiction

January 5th, 2013 at 11:00 am by David Farrar

Stuff reports:

Police say two California teenagers used prescription sleeping medication to drug the milkshakes of their parents so they could use the .

The parents called police, and the 15-year-old girl and a 16-year-old friend were taken to Juvenile Hall in California.

The Sacramento Bee reports the girls offered to pick up milkshakes at a fast-food restaurant for the parents of one of the girls on Friday.

The drug was mixed into the shakes, and the couple fell asleep. The suspicious parents picked up a drug test kit the following day.

The girls told investigators they wanted to use the internet, which the parents shut down daily at 10pm.

I’m not sure what is sadder – the girls drugging the parents, or the fact the parents suspected they had been drugged and rather than confront the girls, got a drug test done and had them arrested.

    Would it have been better to have confronted them and when they lied to have them got the drug test done?

    Agree with Chuck – getting the test first to confirm was right. And I agree with arrest too. At that age children should have to face the real consequences of their actions, which in this case were seriously bad.

    If you suspect your kids of a serious crime just come out and ask them.

    It’s the Justice Binnie parenting method – all the cool canadians do it.
