'Snow' is drugs and 'salad' equals sex: Do you have any idea what the words in your teenagers's texts mean?
- Police urge parents to understand the code words their children use
- 'Netflix and chill' means sex, '8' means oral sex, 'Betty' means cocaine
Salad and Netflix may seem like innocuous words.
But in fact they are both code for sex that teenagers use to 'KPC' (keep parents clueless).
Slang is nothing new - young people have been secretive about drugs, parties, and sex for decades.
However, police are urging parents to read up on the latest - and incredibly creative - terms.

'Snow' is used as a synonym for drugs, and 'robotrippin' means 'doing drugs'.
Marijuana takes the code name 420, while cocaine can be described using a number of women's names including Angie, Betty, Aunt Nora, and Carrie.
Parents whose teenagers plan to 'watch Netflix and chill' with someone may not realize that is code for sex.
So too, bizarrely, is the word 'salad'.
And the number '8' means 'oral sex'.
Online and over text, people use acronyms such as GNOC (get naked on camera), GYPO (get your pants off), and IWSN (I want sex now).
Though most parents would be hard-pushed to translate any of these slang terms, teenagers also use acronyms such as MOS (mom over shoulder) and P911 (parent alert).
CRACK THE CODE: WHAT THESE SLANG TERMS REALLY MEAN
Police officers around the country are constantly familiarizing themselves with new words in order to deconstruct texts, emails and Facebook messages in cases involving drugs, sex, sex with a minor, and alcohol.
'There are horrendous crimes that are discussed on social media,' Officer Vernon Dozier of Norfollk police, Virginia, told ABC 13.
'But to a parent who doesn't understand these code words that they use, they'll just look at it like it's just normal jibber jab that kids are just talking on social media, but it has a bigger meaning to it.
'It needs to be addressed immediately.'
