I know that teenagers sometimes don’t like their parents’ rules. Sometimes they even will sneak to disobey. The question is… how far will teenagers go to get their way?
According to a recent ABC News report, a California teenager was so unhappy with her parent’s guidelines, she decided to drug their milkshakes to put them to sleep so she could browse the internet.
And I thought I was bad for sneaking cookies when I was a kid!
The teenager and her friend were arrested on charges of willfully mingling a pharmaceutical into food and conspiracy. They were booked into juvenile hall on December 31st.
