Are you looking for some free drugs? The DEA has a great list of places you might be able to score some, or just hide your own drugs. Not that you would have any. If you do have drugs, you can tell me. I’m totally not a cop.
According to this handy list from the US Drug Enforcement Agency, teenagers are hiding drugs in literally everything.
Does your daughter use a graphing calculator? She’s probably a drug dealer in an international crime ring.
Does your son have posters on his bedroom wall? He is probably manufacturing meth when you’re not looking.
Do your teenagers and their friends play video games? Well, I’m sorry to break the news, but they are probably growing marijuana cigarettes in the basement.
Drug use among teens, other than marijuana, is at near historic lows, but make sure to watch out for stuffed teddy bears, they may be hiding the marijuana your child is injecting. And even though more teens die from prescription drugs, that they steal from a family member, than heroin and cocaine combined, make sure to be on the look out for shoes and the drugs they hide.
Here is the complete DEA list of places where every teenager hides their drugs. It also a great place to look for free drugs:
- Alarm Clocks: Alarm clocks are a pretty common item in the rooms of many teens. But you may want to take a closer look at them if you suspect your teen is using drugs. Some of the digital clocks can be used to hide illicit drugs; specifically small baggies in the battery compartment alongside the batteries.
- Graphing Calculator: You usually wouldn’t be suspicious of your teen keeping his or her graphing calculator close, but if you suspect them of addiction, you may have to be. Just like with alarm clocks, a small amount of drugs can be hidden inside of the battery compartment.
- Highlighter: Here’s another common school supply that could be used as a hiding place. Believe it or not, teens have used the inside of highlighter caps to hide small amounts of drugs.
- Shoes: Teens can hide baggies of drugs inside of their shoes (sometimes pushed up into the toes of the shoe to keep it out of sight).
- Candy containers / Wrappers: Since a lot of the edible drugs – such as ecstasy or some of the marijuana edibles— look like candy anyway, they can be easily camouflaged inside of a candy wrapper or another kind of candy container.
- Posters: If you suspect your teen is using, you might want to run your fingers over that poster in his or her bedroom. Teens trying to hide something can flatten their small drug-filled baggies and tape them behind the posters hanging on their walls.
- Heating Vent: Teens can tape their drug-filled baggies inside of the heating vent in his or her room.
- Teddy Bears: If your teen is still holding on to his or her adored childhood teddy bear, you may want to consider this. The inside seams of the stuffed animal can be used to hide small amounts of drugs.
- Car Interior: If your teen has his or her own vehicle, there is unfortunately a plethora of places they can hide drugs. Inside of glove compartments, taped underneath the seats, taped behind the steering wheel, and the trunk are just a few places.
- Game Consoles: PlayStation, Wii, Xboxes – all of them have small spaces where teens could hide drugs.
