    LAWRENCEBURG, Ind. (CBS Cleveland/AP) — A southeastern Indiana school is distributing kits so parents can test their children for drug use.

    WCPO-TV reports organizers hope to make an impression on fifth and sixth graders at Sunman Dearborn Intermediate School because children often start experimenting with drugs around age 13.

    Dearborn County Prosecutor Aaron Negangard obtained grant money to pay for the kits and created a Facebook page to boost the idea. Negangard says he has tested his own children.

    “The idea behind preventative drug testing is premised that you start talking to your child on a regular basis about substance abuse issues,” Negangard told WCPO.

    Each kit contains a vial for a urine sample and instructions on how to read the results. The kits test for marijuana, methamphetamines, cocaine, painkillers, and other drugs.

    Bright Christian Church family life director Linda Hutchinson says 600 people visited the church when it distributed the kits in May.

    “It’s a chance to give your children an out under pressure,” Hutchinson said.

    Sounds like a golden opportunity for kids not using drugs to sell some urine.
