Two Placer County teenage girls were arrested for allegedly using drugged milkshakes to knock out the parents of one of the girls so they could log on to the Internet, Rocklin police said.
Internet access at the Rocklin home was routinely shut off at 10 p.m., said Lt. Lon Milka, a department spokesman.
Milka said that on Friday evening, a 15-year-old girl who had a 16-year-old friend from Roseville visiting offered to pick up milkshakes from a local fast-food restaurant for her parents.
The parents drank about a quarter of the milkshakes but didn't finish them, saying they tasted funny and were grainy, Milka said.
But the shakes loaded with prescription sleep aids allegedly provided by the friend were effective, and the parents quickly fell asleep.
They awoke at 1 a.m. with unexplained hangover symptoms, but went back to sleep. In the morning, with the headache and grogginess still present, they went to the Rocklin police station to pick up a drug test kit, Milka said.
"Many parents buy them and have their kids' urine tested," Milka said. But in this case, they used the $5 kit to test themselves, he said.
When the parents tested positive, they alerted the police, and the girls were taken to juvenile hall.
"The girls wanted to use the Internet, and they'd go to whatever means they had to," Milka said.

I hope it is not Ambien.
Time to ban shakes!!! Where’s the ‘shake ban’ bandwagon? ALERT! ALERT! If we had no shakes we’d have no parents knocked out by shakes!!!!
Clever of the parents to have tested themselves w/a [cheap] drug kit.
Probably didn’t know where the library was.
The real story here is that the kid or kids poisoned the milkshakes. It was not a lethal poison, but in the context it was a poison.
The old words sometimes help us get a good assessment of what we’re talking about. This was a poisoning.
Satan is in our midst.
Children using poison on their parents. The Punic disease is back, God Help us all!
> Satan is in our midst.
With Ahmadinejad and Obama in office it is becoming a reality. Problem is you’re not sure who’s the AntiChrist or the False Prophet. Everything seems to point to it being the end times.
“This was a poisoning”
Absolutely. That their intent was (allegedly) not lethal makes no difference.
Beyond that, I’m guessing these rotten little brats aren’t exactly genius-level IQ when it comes to pharmacology. Had the parents consumed more of the beverage, or had they aspirated up the contents of what they had consumed after passing out, they could very well be dead right now.
I simply cannot imagine the hurt and betrayal these two parents are feeling right now. It has to be a whole lot worse than the effects of the doping.
“What the girls did on the Internet that night is not yet clear, Milka said.”
While I’d agree that’s not nearly as important as the fact that they slipped the parents a Mickey Finn, I’m betting it involved either A) Meeting a “super cute boy” or B) tuning into some vapid music/entertainment podcast that the parents would not have approved of - the sort of things non-poisoning children used to sneak out of the house for.
Good lord, I still can’t get over this one. This is real sociopath material here, folks. Maybe they can move in with Karla Homolka.
When milkshakes are outlawed, only outlaws will have milkshakes!
What this particular news item lacks IS told in the Daily Mail (UK) version of the story. The 15 y.o. was kept as a foster child by the parents and then adopted. This is how she shows her gratitude.
How old was she when she first came into their custody? By the time she had a decent home she may have been so damaged she hadn’t any capacity for decency, let alone gratitude. Fifteen — even 11 or 12 — is pretty far gone in terms of personality formation.
Clearly I need a retread on Roman History. Punic Disease?
I note that if you Google “Punic Disease” you also get results for “Pubic Disease”. My day was rich enough, thank you.
I had a history prof who called the late empire corruption “The Punic Disease” and poison of parents by children was all too common.
Ah. Thank you.
