Is Fashion Promoting Drug Abuse?
Would you allow your teenager to wear a T-shirt with a prescription drug name, such as Xanax or Vicodin, written across it?

Kitson, an L.A.-based clothing store popular among teenagers, has been criticized for making the often-abused drugs fashionable by selling such T-shirts.

Pediatrician Dr. Jim Sears says every day 2,500 children abuse a prescription drug for the first time.  

"I work really hard to try to convince my kids and my patients that drugs are not cool," Dr. Sears says. "When I see stuff like this, it makes my job a lot harder."

Kitson’s Director of Operations Courtney Saavedra clarifies that Kitson is a retailer and did not design the T-shirts.

“Fashion is social commentary. We’re not glorifying prescription drug use, whatsoever," she says. "Those are alarming statistics … We’re simply presenting a mirror to what already exists in the culture.”

Kitson says it's donating the profits from the T-shirt sales and a matching contribution to an unnamed non-profit. Read statements from the T-shirt designer and the drug manufacturers.

E.R. physician Dr. Travis Stork asks: Do T-shirts such as this make the use of prescription drugs fashionable?

Kitson’s director of operations questions why the company is being targeted.
