(Newser) – A teenager who thought her parents' 10pm cutoff of the Internet was too strict spiked their milkshakes with prescription sleeping meds so she could go online, police say. It worked. When her parents passed out, the 15-year-old girl and a 16-year-old friend were able to log on, reports the Sacramento Bee. But when her parents woke the next morning feeling like death, they picked up drug-testing kits, figured out what happened, and called police, who brought the girls to juvie hall.

They face charges of conspiracy and "willfully mingling a pharmaceutical with food," reports the local Rocklin & Roseville Today. And what did they do online after the bizarre plot actually worked? Police don't know—and they don't care. "For our investigation, that wasn't as important as the drugging with the milkshake," says a spokesman.

What actually stunned me is not the "plot" (kids do several other sh@t like this), and it actually worked without any harm, but that the parents called the cops on their daughter... I wouldn't do. I would first find out what happened, investigate the online "activity", then do the call for the cops, if there's any illegal underage thing has happened. True, the girl needs to upgrade her relationship to a higher level with her parents.

Good argument for password protecting your computer.

It's the parents fault for drinking milkshakes past 10pm.... don't they know that eating so late makes you fat?
