Parents 'know little about drug's culture'

FROM: DAILYMAIL.CO.UK

A third of parents say they don't know enough about illegal drugs that their children may be confronted with, making it difficult to talk to them about the dangers.
The Government poll revealed large gaps in parents knowledge about the growing youth drug culture in Britain.

A quarter did not know that 'skunk' is a potent form of cannabis or that 'Charlie' is a common nickname for cocaine.

The survey of 500 parents of 11 to 18-year-olds also found 27 per cent felt they knew too little about drugs and would ask someone else to speak to their child if they suspected them dabbling in illegal substances.

Unaware of drug abuse signs

Although half of the parents had spoken to their children about the dangers of drugs. Many were unaware of vital signs that their child could be taking drugs or illegal substances.

For example, half of parents were unaware that items such as clingfilm, small stickers or transfers were often associated with taking drugs such as cannabis or acid.

Spokesman for the Government's Frank campaign James Robinson-Morley said they had launched a Parents Drug quiz on their website.

"The test is a simple way for busy parents to assess their knowledge and to raise awareness of any areas where they might need to talk to Frank, whether they simply need the facts, or would like to talk to someone for advice and support," they said.

The Parents Drug Test is available on www.talktofrank.com and includes details on commonly-used drugs, their appearance, popular street names and signs of drug-taking.
