Monitor the Pharm

Pharming parties and prescription drugs are to teens now what raves and ecstasy were to teens a decade ago. Basically, a pharming party consists of a bunch of kids getting together to buy or trade and take prescription drugs to get high. The scary thing is that these drugs not only come from medicine cabinets, but also from the Internet. Internet Pharmacies are popping up all over the place. The meds can be purchased without involvement from a doctor and because they're not being delivered by a trusted pharmacist you never can be sure of exactly what you're getting.

Check out what's for sale on one of the more popular pharmacy sites. Also, check the Google News link and do some pharming searches to read the most recent publications on the problem.
