Kentucky State Police say they've dealt with incidences where kids as young as middle school-age are caught with drugs like heroin.

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration a fifth of the more than 25 million adolescents in the United States will use an illicit drug this year.

The SAMHSA says on average six percent of teens in America will try an illicit drug for the first time in a year.
