After a new drug surfaced locally, police did their own research on it, and now they want to educate parents, too.
Police are planning a community forum to give parents tips on how to tell if their child is using a drug that local investigators had never heard of a month ago. The drug 25I-NBOMe, or N-Bomb, was found next to the body of Samuel Motsay, a Center Grove High School student, last month.
Police estimate a new drug is discovered every few months, so staying on top of each new trend is difficult. A drug may be packaged in a new way or have a few new ingredients, local police said.
