Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Should DIY drugs testing kits be used by parents? ________________ There are many issues that need to be solved in our society today. However, there is one in particular that stands out the most and this is drug abuse. Since the increased number of teenagers taking drugs, concerned parents have been desperately looking for solutions to help them deter their child from the total trap of drug abuse.
