If you think your teen is using drugs or drinking, take action. The sooner you address the problem, the less likely that their experimentation will lead to abuse and addiction. Immediately begin to more closely monitor your teen’s activities and set up reasonable rules and consequences that are enforceable. The most important thing you can do as a parent is not deny that a drug or alcohol problem exists. If the problem is beyond your ability to handle, ask for help. There are many drug and alcohol treatment programs that are tailored to teens.

    Actually no one calls it “G” anymore just so your aware. Most people use “Gak” sometimes “Jib” but “Pooked” is being used lately. Ex. “dude you look Pooked out” please learn your fact before you try to tell people.

    If someone is rubing their thumb and pointer finger that is a reference to smoking. Also nose candy as a nick name or flicking at ones nose is a sign used, as well as the index or fingers to the arm in reference to injection
