...a great network of parents here at Five Moms who help me spread the word about cough medicine abuse. I found out about teenage cough medicine abuse the hard way, when my son was arrested for armed robbery while under the influence of over-the-counter cough medicine and marijuana. Since then, I have been committed to educating other parents so they do not have to go through what I have. Through the Five Moms campaign and web site, we have been able to reach thousands of parents and show them the truth about cough medicine abuse. I never imagined that such a trend would affect my life the way that it did. Now, I want to do whatever I can to ensure others know how real the danger is. Keep spreading the word about cough medicine abuse. Learn about the warning signs. You'll be thankful that you did.
