Private companies offering sniffer dogs to assist you in uncovering your teenagers’ weed stashes have become an actual industry in the US.
“The Last Chance K9 Services” of Louisville, Kentucky, for example, is doing good business. The company’s owner, Michel Davis, is trained in using dogs to detect bombs and other weapons. But crucially, the animals he works with can successfully track down small amounts of marijuana in teenagers’ rooms. The Last Chance K9 Services charges you just $99 to go all SWAT on your kids, and claims to have searched 50 homes so far, with a stunning detection rate of 90%.
Or, there might be less alienating ways to find out about your kids’ drug habits—like, say, having a respectful discussion.
