The Drug Enforcement Agency has published a list that explains all the secret places teens are supposedly stashing their drugs these days. As the Washington Post pointed out, the list completely blows up the spot on classic hiding spaces like graphing calculators, alarm clocks, posters, and candy wrappers.

"You usually wouldn't be suspicious of your teen keeping his or her graphing calculator close, but if you suspect them of addiction, you may have to be," the DEA wrote. "Just like with alarm clocks, a small amount of drugs can be hidden inside of the battery compartment."

The agency also warns parents of strange, innocuous stash spots like teddy bears (parents "may want to consider" checking "inside seams") and highlighters (because "believe it or not, teens have used the inside of highlighter caps to store small amounts of drugs"). Belt buckles and game consoles also made the list.

We know what you're thinking: bummer! Well don't worry, young person. While the government might have ruined your shoes, belts, and candy wrappers as hiding spots, there are lots of other classic places where drugs can go that the DEA doesn't seem to know about. Here are 85 of them:
