The St. Lawrence County Sheriff's Department's frantic search for the
missing Fentanyl patches and Oxycontin pills should serve as a wake up
call to parents across the North Country. Some of our teens are
experimenting with very dangerous drugs. This is really just the tip
of the iceberg.

You would think that when teens experimenting with drugs end up
unconscious, vomiting, suffering chest pains and difficulty breathing,
some of them might think these may not be all they're cracked up to

Unfortunately, with groups like the pro drug use lobby trying to
convince the public that drugs are just a harmless way to spend an
evening, it should not be too surprising that our children are being
misled into experimenting with potentially deadly results.
