Teen Drugs Parents So She Can Stay Online Past Curfew
We’ve all heard the stories about stressed-out parents drugging their unruly toddlers with a dose of Benadryl so that they can get some shut-eye, but this is certainly a new twist. On December 28, a 16 year-old girl and her 15-year-old friend from Northern California decided to buy her parents two milkshakes from a local fast-food joint and crush prescription sleeping pills in them so that they can explore the wonderful world of the Internet without that pesky 10 p.m. curfew.
The parents unknowingly drank half of their milkshakes, noting that it tasted a bit funny but at the time, didn’t think anything of it. They woke up in the middle of the night feeling groggy and hungover; when the symptoms didn’t subside in the morning they knew something was up and bought a cheap drug test only to discover that daughter dearest knocked them out cold so she could surf the web with her buddy.
The parents contacted the police, and the two girls were arrested and put into Juvenile Hall for willfully putting a drug into someone’s food and on suspicion of conspiracy. Due to the girls being underage, their names cannot be released.
Talk about starting the New Year off on the wrong foot! This is one New Year’s celebration that will live in infamy in the memories of both the teen girls.
