If it was to be said that internet has become somewhat of an addiction, specifically for the youth, that wouldn’t be far from truth. While it may be fine to stay online till late hours if you have an e-business, it is abnormal if you are a teenager and wouldn’t mind drugging your parents simply because you wish to get online till late.
This is precisely what a Californian teenager did. Apparently, the parents had banned her from getting online after 10 p.m. While the ‘ban’ itself is not something to be cherished (we’ve often seen teenagers to get rebellious over such strict curbs), it certainly didn’t result in an effect the parents were hoping for.
The teenager, evidently annoyed at the ban or simply wanting to use internet bit too much, offered to buy her parents milkshakes. That was an unusual occurrence in itself, her parents later noted. To those milkshakes, she secretly added a friend’s prescription sleep medicine.
According to the police, “They had a crunchy texture, bad taste in their mouth. Subsequently, they fell asleep.” This was, despite the fact that they consume only one-fourth of the milkshakes due to its strange taste.
The next thing they knew, they woke up next morning, not knowing what hit them. Feeling suspicious about the whole thing, the parents took a drug test and realized what had happened. Eventually, the teen and her friend were taken into custody over charges of conspiracy and wilfully drugging her parents.
