More home drug testing is becoming available

Study: 22% of 12th graders said they smoked pot within the past month

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – One Louisiana based company has been at the forefront of drug testing, making at home testing a reality for thousands of families across the globe.

The American Screening Corporation offers single drug test for alcohol, marijuana and other substances.

According to one study conducted in 2013, 22-percent of 12th graders said they smoked marijuana within the past month, and 26-percent said they were drunk within the past month.

Ellen Young of Montpelier, Vermont, told 22News, “They shouldn’t do that. I think you should have enough communication with your children that you can either talk about it, just period, you should have enough communication that they can come to you and say, ‘you know, I’m drinking.’”

These tests have been distributed to dozens of countries including Argentina, Egypt and Thailand.
