During a radio talk show today, the host reported that a new service that uses dogs to sniff out drugs in children's rooms is available to parents. The police are not notified, but parents are. Basically German Shepherds, aka "police dogs" are used to sniff out those drugs.
Overall, this seems like a good idea. The parents get to deal with this matter privately without getting themselves or their kids involved with the police. And for what it's worth, the service is probably worth its 2 hundred-dollar fee.
Even though I don't have any children, I'd still have some concerns and questions. For example, what happens to the drugs --- does the service take them away or must parents deal with that? Also, suppose the kids are really devious and hide drugs in their parents' underwear and or sock drawers instead? Wouldn't all of this backfire on the parents at some point? Just wondering.
