One California county now offers parents an affordable way to check and see if their teens are drinking or using drugs. Placer County is selling drug testing kits at discounted prices to the parents of high school students.

The kits usually cost $40 but parents can buy them for as little as $2 under a program from police officers assigned to local high schools.

The sheriff hopes the kits help discourage teens from drinking or abusing drugs.
