Skittle Parties

A skittle party has nothing to do with the bright colored candy that many enjoy, but can be described as a lethal game of chance.  According to http://www.urbandictionary.com a Skittles Party is, “A party where a bunch of teenagers or young adults get together with a lot of random pills.  These pills are usually taken from parents’ or grandparents’ medicine cabinets.  They put them all into a pile and everyone takes a few.  You don’t know exactly what you take.”  Teens are mixing prescription drugs and are totally unaware of the consequences, which may be deadly .  According to http://www.cdc.gov prescription painkillers that are being misused and abused caused over 475,000 visits to emergency departments in 2009.
