ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-- It's been a busy week for Federal Drug Agents. First they warned us about a new and deadly drug circulating among young people.

Now they want parents to know about drug web sites.

Federal agents are sure young people know about these drug use web sites like this here. They want parents to check them out so they use the information to arm themselves to protect their children.

The feds say the drugs are legal.

Type in the words drug use and experience on Google and one of the first web sites to pop up is Erowid.

It gives people information:  on how to use drugs and reactions to different illegal substances, for example is it better to snort Ecstasy or use it orally.

Needless to say the drug experience web sites are upsetting to parents.

Folks at the D.E.A. want parents concerned about their kids to check out these web sites.

For its part Erowid says its mission is to provide: "access to reliable, non-judgmental information about psychoactive plants, chemicals and related issues. We imagine a world where people treat psychoactive with respect and awareness."
