    Abuse of dangerous drugs by children is widespread - not just marijuana, heroin, and cocaine, but also alcohol, tobacco, anabolic steroids, and a variety of inhibitants, stimulants and tranquilizers, both prescription and over-the-counter. Some easily obtained substances seem harmless but can be deadly:

   Room Deodorizer
   Spray Paint
   Nail Polish Remover
   Paint Thinner
   Liquid Paper
   Gasoline
   Insecticide

These are rapidly absorbed by the brain and can cause convulsions, blood vessel damage, heart attacks and death.

If you suspect that your child is doing any of the above, please contact BOYS TOWN USA immediately for information on steps you can take.
