According to drug testing expert Doug Chinchar, a new street drug called Cheese is sweeping the nation and has already claimed the lives of 21 teens in Dallas over the past year.
Cheese is a cheap version of heroin, made by mixing heroin tar together with over-the-counter cold medications or sleeping pills.
Chinchar says Cheese goes for about $2 a pop and is being passed by teens in hallways at school more and more each day.
It often resembles grated Parmesan cheese, hence the cheesy code name, and Chinchar advises parents to keep their ears open for the lingo.
If parents hear their teens having a strange conversation about Cheese, their eyes should light up, and they should immediately begin asking questions.
Thats when Chinchars at-home drug test, KNOW, could also come in handy.
Its a test parents can clip to the refrigerator to get their kids talking about drugs and other peer pressures before its too late.
