10 Most Disturbing Teen Trends

Experts reveal the issues that parents should know about now

Cough Syrup and Soda
The narcotic drug codeine is found in the cough syrup bottles you likely have in your medicine cabinet—and kids can use it to get high, according to Stratyner, who has seen a rise in the practice of mixing up the drink, referred to as “sizzurp” or “purple drank.” A phenomenon popularized in some hip-hop music, cough syrup is traditionally mixed with a sugary soda like Sprite or Mountain Dew, and tends to suppress the respiratory system. Lil Wayne, who has admitted to abusing cough syrup in this way, was hospitalized in March for seizures after reportedly ingesting a high amount of codeine.
