WASHINGTON-Parents are taking action for their teens safety.
A dozen parents and teachers met tonight at the five points center in Washington.
Presentations and group discussions were held on the latest drugs, teens are using today.
They looked at why teens feel like they are invincible at this age and why they decide to take drugs.
The group also discussed drugs teens are able to buy over the internet.
Parents felt that being more up to date will help them stop teen drug use at the early stages.
Drug Awareness Presenter, Rene Sandoval said, "Making people aware that this is something is extremely dangerous. There's no regulation to the synthetic compounds that are being used and you don't know the potency.
Parents walked away with a stronger sense of how to catch early signs of drug use.
They felt more prepared on spreading the word to stop drug use among teens.
