While many people associate spring break with college kids, the San Mateo County Narcotic Task Force is urging parents of high school teens to know the risks associated with this time of the year.

More than ever high school students under the age of 18 take unsupervised trips during spring break or during summer months but even teens that stay at home are at risk. Unsupervised time, money to spend and peer pressure to “let loose” can be a recipe for risky behavior including drug use.
