  • you guys just want to smoke his weed. good luck.
  • Depends on the level of addiction and ingenuity of the boy concerned. If he is already an addict and also ingenious then he will not be leaving anything anywhere in the house for others to find.
  • I was a huge pothead back in the day. I would have taken my stash with me to tell you the truth. If it is there, try looking in his pillowcase. That's where I used to hide mine.
  • Take a look in the ceiling light fixture. That's where I used to hide my "stuff" when I was a kid. No one ever found it!
  • I never kept any drugs (or anything) in my room at 17 because I knew my mother searched my room because she "just knew I was doing something wrong" and was bound and determined to catch me at it.
  • So what if you found his "stash"? He needs to talk to his son about drug use - for starters. His son is not likely to just stop because his "stash" was discovered. It's a process. Open lines of communication. Don't expect an easy resolution.
  • A teenager would have it with them, if he was going anywhere for the weekend. Check socks, shoes, hanging jackets in their closet, look for holes in the pocket of the jacket, they will move it around to the back. Look outside in the BBQ pit.
  • Well, if you suspect that he is taking drugs ; why not take him to a local hospital and have him tested ? Some hospitals will do a full screen and not charge as a community service. IF that is not availiable to you; go to your local pharmacy and get a test kit and do a tst at home ; that will let you know IF he is actually doing anything to begin with ... Searching his room because you all "THINK" he is doing drugs, is wrong .. Evidence should be there to support the accusation before resorting to searching.
  • Battery Compartment of the radio/torch etc....it will work for Parents but Crimefighters always look there first.
  • Depending on what drugs! I would search any place in a bookshelf; a drawer;under a mattress; a garage; in the car;in the yard; any place the person seems to disappear to before going out or when they immediately come in. Watch for patterns of secretive movement!n I would howevern start ann open dialogue with you son about your thoughts on drugs and your support for him should he wish to talk. Never threaten as the person will hide deeper into themselves!
  • Under the matress, in heating/air conditioner vents, in stuffed animals, in pillow cases, in a ziploc bag that is then placed in the back of the toliet.
  • kewl, I used to stash mine (a long, long, looooonnngg, time ago) in a book that was hollow in the middle. No-one ever found out. It was a hardcover book. You can buy them like that. Good Luck you guys. What about something that has been sticky-taped under the bed, desk, etc. Or even inside dumbell handles. Salaam
  • I'd bring my drugs with me so I could really enjoy my weekend... if I were a druggie, that is.
  • Although I never did drugs, I wouldn't keep them at home. Too many hard questions to answer if found. It's possible to buy them as you need them and not have to keep a stash around.
  • Stay out of his room. Searching rooms does not equal good parenting. It's probably at least partly this self-righteous ethic that's made him turn to drugs in the first place.
  • He would have it on him, look for evidence, tin foil, white paticles, lighters, numbers.
  • Wow! He has it with him. first, if he is doing drugs he will take them when he leaves and second most do not hide in their own room anymore. I would tell but that is not right. I haved smoked pot for 38 years and know a little about it. I do not know how to say this without making you mad, but here goes. Do not search for evidence. Just ask him if he is smoking pot or doing any other drug. Searching his room is a violation of his trust in you. That is what causes the distance and trouble between the teen and his parents. The have to catch and get evidence. Ask and respect the teen and they will talk more open to you. Say something like I would like to talk to you about something that is bothering me. I love and respect you to be honest with me, as I am asking and not invading your life. Do you use pot or any other drug. If so just be honest and we can talk about it and learn together. Help me to help you. Sorry, I do not mean to invade, but like I said I have smoked for a lot of years for medical reasons by the doctor and even before that as a youth and just to enjoy it. Tell anybody that knows me and they would argue it with you. My captain did not believe me and I had to show him my authorization paperwork. He could not tell.
  • If hes gone for the weekend his stash is on him.
  • Look under drawers, inside hollowed out books and in the curtains. Don't forget the pockets of out of season clothing and on the molding of the door inside the closet.
  • I dont have an answer where they could be hidden, but they are most probably on him, just ask about the scale (its a starting point) Good luck
  • Be ready for this to backfire in your friends face. My brother-in-law and my father suspected their daughter and granddaughter of doing drugs. Yes, they searched her room and it didn't take long to find the drugs. Brother-in-law confronted daughter. When the confrontation was over daughter disappeared for about 3 years. She finally came home and made up with her parents. She moved into a commune for young people to make a clean start in life...she died in an auto accident about 2 months after she was accepted into the group. So be very careful how you handle this...I lost a really sweet neice because it was handled wrongly.
  • Maybe inside a speaker, tv, etc. Feel free to take a screwdriver to things in his room. Look inside stuffed animals, or other toys from childhood. what kind of stash are you looking for? why is it so bad for him to be smoking pot? what harm could it do?
  • Check any books in his room, especially old text books or a bible. Hollowing them out makes a neat little hiding spot. Some of the places I've stashed my stuff is, under the sink in the bathroom. Light fixtures, inside my stereo speakers, box spring, underneath the bottom drawer of my dresser, in a cigarette pack. Also check the battery area of any non-working electronics.
  • At 17 you don't stash drugs in your room.
  • I never searched my daughters room. My parents never searched mine. I couldn't in good conscience help you search his.
  • 17 and gone for the weekend? He has his stash with him of course.
  • Well, what sort of behavior is he exhibiting? Is he stealing, flunking out of school, being generally obnoxious without a reason, etc? If so, then you need to confront him on those issues, and ask about drugs as a causitive reason. If he's not doing any of those things, you need to respect his right to do with his body as he chooses to that's honest and peaceful, otherwise you're just telling him that you approve of the Orwellian society that we live in.
  • first i think all these little answers u should take in too consideration and second of all he is just probably smoking weed,aka pot let me tell u i have been smoking pot for a long time it is heathly for u and if it is just pot u shouldn't have to worry if i was 17 i would hide my stash on the bookshelve in the back of my books
  • If you think he is doing drugs by you searching his room... is going to make things MUCH WORSE. my parents did it to me and they lost 4 years of my life.. if he is doing drugs... talk to him.. let him gain your trust.. by doing this... it wont take a day a week maybe not a month... you have to show him you respect his privacy and wont search his room.. but ask for honesty.. sit down and talk to him. maybe theres a insecurity reason hes possibly doing drugs.. i know the reason for why i did drugs.. was because i was sex abused as a child and my parents shut me out.. and used to abuse my privacy... my room.. my journals... everything.. i couldnt trust them. and i disowned them and got sent away for 4 years.. so the 4 years i was gone.. they missed out. first things first.. sit down and talk to him. dont jump to conclusions.. thats the BIGGEST mistake you can make!!! and let him gain your trust... and dont yell or overreact... be calm about it and that is how he will gain your trust. i took sociology for a semester.. and everyone has told a fib or a lie. because their afraid of the reaction and possbile consquences... if you show laughter about when u confront a lie or a fib you proove slowly that it will not anger you therefore bringing the child/person closer to you.
  • he not hid them in his room,has he got a younger sibling?if so check they re room
  • if hes gone for the weekend he took his stash with him
  • I'm 17, but I don't hide it, my parents are cool with it. Just thought I would let you know that. And realistically, he probably took his stuff with him.
  • Any drug addict worth his salt, takes his drugs with him.
  • well i hide my stuff up high like on a celling fan bc i know it never gets turned on and under the carpet..
  • I agree with a lot of what these guys are saying, if hes gone for the weekend hes not leaving it in his room!
  • Look in closed corners and corners that stuff is he might hide it behind stuff in a corner
  • Check ALL his pockets, shoes , shoe boxes, containers. Also, do not limit your search to his room. Could be in any container, any dry small enclosed area anywhere.
  • stay out of snooping in his room.
  • under the floor or in the wall. Most likely not in my room. try the attic or basement.
  • look in the dvd player or the vcr check movie cases and se if there are holes in the walls
  • Bitccchhh move... I'm just saying, he's gone for the weekend, so he probably has it. But stay out, If he EVER found out, he'd be sooo mad. It'll cause way more problems,just think if he really wasn't doing drugs and he caught his mom searching his room!
  • Were it me, I'd try to have an honest conversation with him before I decided to pillage his room. Might respect you more for that.
  • I'm guessing you've checked all the places YOU used to stash it when you were kids. :) He's probably emailed it as an attachment to one of his buds for safekeeping. Move with the times!
  • I never thought to check out my daughter's room while she was gone (yeah, right). I was ignorant. She's now 28, but she told me her favorite place to hide her pot was in her deodorant container. So check the most improbable places. She also told me she used to slip out her window & stay out all hours of the night(and laughed while telling me!) ha! Boy, were we dumb, but we trusted her and she turned out to be a wonderful person, a veteran in the USAF and a teriffic wife & mother.
  • In my TV. Take his TV apart. If he doesn't have a TV, he's keeping it in another one in the house. You should take them all apart just to be safe. Make sure to smash the larger pieces so you can make sure he hasn't gone to even greater lengths to hide his dope.
  • I commend you and your friend for being concerned about the well being of this youth. I hope he recognizes just how lucky he is to have people who care about him. Predictably, you have gotten many answers about "his" room, and "his" privacy. My take on it is that any child who is living at home, and is fully supported by his parents has to earn his rights to privacy by being trustworthy. If he has not done that, then he has no such rights. As many people have pointed out, every hidey space that can be used, will be used. Be through. If you find nothing, he is still not off the hook. I suggest your friend get professional counseling with her son.
  • in the backs of photo frames, tissue boxes (in use I would pull them open then glue them shut again and anywhere in the house not just my room), hollow books, any electronics battery compartment, stuffed animals (I'd rip a seam then sew it back up again), on the roof, that creepy hole in the basement (used to brew my own wine in it), secret compartment in my bag, just right in my pocket, the bushes outside the house, buried in the woods a half mile down the street. These are all places I've used, but my point is that finding them is not the answer it will only make him find better places to hide them and you cannot possibly search all of these places. Find out why. You have to not ask but at the same time listen. I did all sorts of drugs because I had a sleep disorder and nobody would listen to me. They said I was making it up. It escalated from simple insomnia to me being so tired I couldn't even think for days and days and the only reason I didn't kill myself was because I knew once I was 18 I'd get to go to the doctor and maybe get it sorted out. Until then I self medicated with nightly overdoses (20-40) pills of simply sleep, crushed adderall in the morning, I even considered meth. As soon as I got the treatment I needed for the insomnia I never touched the stuff again. It was instantaneous not some slow addiction recovery healing process. Maybe he just needs a good doctor. Try taking him to one and let him go in alone so he can be honest. Finding some of the drugs won't stop him from getting more.
  • Don't. I'm 16, I hide mine in the bottom drawer :P
  • On the back side of a drawer.
  • Computer tower.
  • hi im alex and im going to be a snitch and tell u where it probly is because i am a usual smoker and i know...sooooo i wanna see someone else suffer getting caught. so look in his backpack, look in his socks , look in cd cases, look in suitcases with rapped up towels around them. Look under draws for there stuff to be stashed under and taped. Look in shoes. and anywhere that has little room or secret hiding places. Or jsut fucking drug test him durka dur but dont buy it from the store get a hair follicule and it will tell u when and what he did in the last 3 months yadameannnnnnnnnnm..........?
  • If I was 17,doing drugs, and going away for the weekend I would Take them with me
  • It's probably not in his room... If i were him, I would have taken it with me. But that depends on where he went.
  • In the Xbox.
  • to be honest i dont think you should be in his room in the first place. that will make things 100 times worse than it all ready is. if you suspect something is up with him, ask dont snoop.
  • If he ain't doing drugs, let him proove that!
  • He will have it with him, so you should have checked his ass hole before he left! You could always check it again when he comes home.
  • When I was a teenager, I kept cigarettes and pot in the hollow part of a deodorant stick wrapped in tissue so it didn't move around or rattle. The deodorant insert is removable if you roll it all the way up.
  • Check the inside of the box spring. That is an enormous hollow space. All it takes is one little tear in the fabric. It is just a big wooden frame with springs on the top side and fabric stapled over it.
  • NO NO!!! thats bad parenting and for the friend you need to but out its not your stuff to worry about and hey maybe the friends son just wants to have fun? what if he feels trapped at home? you know there are lots of reasons and none of your concern....sad but true
  • Well, I'm fervently against unwarranted search-and-seizure, but it seems the harm's already been done. My husband used to hide his inside a leather jacket - he slit the liner and stuffed his stash in there. That was more for travel, though. The home stash was much more personalized to the space. He'd had people break in looking for his stuff and not find it.
