Dutch parents sent teen drug-check kits

    Dutch parents in the council area of Edam-Volendam are receiving kits in order to test teenagers for drug use.

    The local council has announced it will deliver free drugs test kits to 1,500 local families as a preventative measure against teenage use of cannabis, cocaine, amphetamine, heroin, morphine and codeine and PCP, which is also known as Angel Dust.

    Parents have been instructed on how to use the kits on young people between the ages of 15 and 19.

    Parents who wish to become involved in the tests will need to take samples of saliva from their children.

    Council officials have said the reason for sending the kits is purely preventative, to give parents the opportunity to raise the highly emotive issue of teenage drug taking.

    Drug use in Edam-Vollendam has long been considered a social problem.

    This a sign of the times in the Netherlands. Drug policy has been going downhill since 2003 and this is a new low. Volendam is a town with very orthodox Christian population. This very strict community has a very high rate of drug use, that they are trying to tackle.

    Wonder how many Teenagers are actually doing PCP.. I hate how the more people hate on a drug and try to make it illegal and say its "Dangerous" it seems more people want to do it.

    it's a shame they don't realise it's the strictness which may be the cause of the high rate of drug use.

    I predict a surge in research chemical use in Volendam.
