    Teenage Girls Drug Parents To Use The Internet After Hours

    redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports – Your Universe Online

    Apparently, some teenagers REALLY love using the Internet. A 16-year-old California girl is being investigated by local police after she and a 15-year-old friend reportedly drugged her parents in order to get around a curfew preventing the two teenagers from going online after hours.

    The unnamed Rocklin native and her alleged accomplice were attempting to get around the household’s 10pm ban on Web surfing by spiking her parent’s milkshakes with ground-up sleeping pills, Jeff Blagdon of The Verge reported on Saturday.

    Mom and Dad reportedly only consumed about one-fourth of the drinks, but that was enough to knock them out for several hours, according to Slashgear‘s Brittany Hillen. They awoke at 1am nursing hangover-like symptoms, before falling asleep and waking up again in the morning.

    “Suspecting that something was up, they bought a drug testing kit and tested themselves, with the test showing positive results. Presumably they then questioned their daughter, since a few hours later, they showed up with her at the local police station,” Hillen said.

    Lieutenant Lon Milka of the Rocklin police department told Amanda Holpuch of The Guardian that the situation was still under investigation, but that the medication used in the milkshakes had been provided by an also-unidentified third individual who lived in the nearby town of Roseville.

    Milka said that they were looking into how much of the drug had been used in the drinks. In the meantime, the girls have been charged with conspiracy and mixing a pharmaceutical into food. They were booked on New Year’s Eve and are awaiting trial at the Placer County juvenile detention center.

    “If they were adults, they could be facing prison time” the police lieutenant told the Sacramento Bee.

    He added that the two girls “wanted to use the Internet, and they’d go to whatever means they had to,” and that investigators were not sure exactly why they wanted to get back online so badly, but noted that “for our investigation, that wasn’t as important as the drugging with the milkshake.”

    There are things which even an addict wouldn't do. What those teenagers did was the lowest of the low, they drugged their own parents putting their lives at risk and don't tell me sleeping pills are harmless.

    I've been hardcore addicted before and there would be circumstances where I would have no access to a computer like on holiday. Doesn't mean I'd brake into someone's house to use their computer.

    It's like suggesting it's normal for a sex addict to rape someone if they can't get to sleep with someone for the day normally.

    It doesn't excuse it. Drugging your parents is overstepping the line. If my future kids would do such a thing they'd be out of the house and wouldn't get a dime from my will.

    This is a very good point. I'm a good guy but I would've done the same thing at 15 if I was deprived of my freedom.
