FORSYTH COUNTY, N.C. -- It's cheap, it's legal, and available at any drug store.

WXII 12 News' Melissa Marsh investigates the latest, dangerous way for teenagers to get high. Teenagers call it Triple C, Skittles, or Red Devils.

The little red pills are Coricidin HPG, a popular over-the-counter cold medicine that looks like candy and has three C's on it.

"I tried triple C probably when I was a freshman. I took 8 the first time and 6 the second time," said Leslie Miller (pictured, left).

"The first time, I was laying on a bed and I didn't move for about 4 hours. In order to smoke a cigarette, somebody had to hold it up to my mouth and I could barely inhale. I couldn't do anything, I could not move," said Miller. Sooo, you did it AGAIN? damn that's hardcore :P

LoL Yeah, if you did it twice, you have no right to bitch at the media. That's plain stupid. You have cause to not like something the first time.... why would you do it twice?

I hope I'm not the only one who gets really annoyed reading all this, seeing it on the tv, being questioned by my parents. Doing drugs is one thing, being completely moronic in your drug use is something all by itself. "I like to fuck around with dangerous drugs, and then blame other people. Feel bad for me!!!"
