The rise in availability of home drug testing kits and technology has seen a parallel rise in a related industry: products that manipulate drug test results. While none of these products truly come out and say that’s what they’re for, a quick internet search or talk with the clerk at the shop will tell you that beating a drug test is exactly what they are for.
For parents or even private schools which use drug testing as a means of keeping kids and students in check, these products aren’t just a nuisance. They turn the whole point of drug testing on its head and make a mockery of the system. The problem is that in today’s world information is so entirely accessible with search engines and the internet, that kids have quickly figured out how to beat the system. It’s not “underground sites” that sell these products. It’s the sites you know and love: Amazon and Ebay, to name a few. You can find everything from QCarbo32 drug test drinks here to pills to even fake urine, all of which are used in a semi-illegal manner to trick the results of testing, whether through urine or hair analysis.
What’s needed is a test that tests for products designed to trick the tests.
Or maybe not. Maybe what’s needed is parents to know what these products are and be able to identify them in the house. It’s not the most noble act, but more than one kid has been caught using them by his Dad finding the empty plastic jug of QCarbo32 in his sons trash can.
But what if the kid takes the intelligent step off destroying the evidence – what then?
And therein lies the problem. How do you fight against that? The truth is that you can’t.
Maybe home drug tests aren’t really a good weapon after all.

The Internet is a dangerous place for children and the scary thing is there is no real safe way to keep your kids out of harms way. If kids are intent on finding something on the Internet they will probably find it sooner or later. However there are ways to help protect your kids when they are on the home computer.
Google is the biggest Internet search engine and is used my almost everybody out there. In the future it wouldn’t surprise me if people started to call the Internet, Google!
As far as your kids are concerned this can be a good thing because Google has some features that make the Internet a bit safer.
Google safe search limits the searches that are returned to only the ones that Google deems as safe and suitable for children. These settings should be activated on your browser if you know that your children will be using the Internet. If you activate these settings and then choose to lock them so that they can’t be changed every time your kids perform a search on the Internet they will not be subjected to any kind of pornographic content or any other type of content that may be inappropriate.
These settings make Google for kids a safe place. You won’t have to worry any more. In fact, it’s probably a really good idea to teach your kids how to use Google. Let them know that if they want to find out any information, all they have to do is type their question into the search box and they can find the answer.
By teaching them how to use Google (which you have already set to safe search) you are letting them satisfy their curiosity and keep them safe at the same time. If only everything for kids was that easy!
You can learn more about Google safe search by simply Googling it.
