    ARE YOU SURE THE SPICES AREN’T POT. THEY ALSO USE SPRAY PAINT.

    Are your kids getting high?

    Your kids don’t get high. How could they? You pay close attention and haven’t noticed anything unusual. Yet, your kids could be getting high on things that are right under your nose.

    By the eighth grade, one in five young people has gotten high ingesting or inhaling ordinary household items. These kids are at serious risk for organ damage or even death.

    Products abused by either ingestion or inhalation include:

    Decongestants, antihistamines, pain relievers or fever reducers.
    Diet aids with Ephedra.
    Butane, lighter fluid and kerosene.
    Correction fluid, felt tip markers, glues and adhesives.
    Hair sprays and nail preparations.
    Aerosol sprays and spray paints.
    Solvents, turpentine, paint and paint thinners.

    Here’s something I didn’t know.

    Nutmeg, cooking spray and vanilla extract look like ingredients to make cookies, but these are all things local kids are getting high from. And hundreds of Floridians are dying from these highs each year.

    Utah’s Teens Getting High on Household Products
    Feb. 1, 2005

    Another form of drug abuse is gaining momentum in America. One study suggests Utah exceeds the national average in the practice of “huffing”.

    Huffing is a term used to describe the inhaling harmful vapors that are most commonly found in household cleaning supplies. Everything from Clorox to Scrubbing Bubbles can be used to get a high for just several minutes. It’s an abuse that’s easily hidden from parents.

    Computer duster, a common business product, is also a common drug of choice for Utah’s teens.

    B.J. VanRoosendaal, Substance Abuse Counselor: “Parents need to be aware and always on the lookout for signs of substance abuse.”

    But what if the signs are hard to detect? The high only lasts for minutes, but younger kids are giving it a try, sniffing everything from glue to cigarette lighter fluid.

    B.J. VanRoosendaal, Substance Abuse Counselor: “Paint thinner, white out, whipped cream – the aerosol in whipped cream.”

    While it’s obvious to parents to not leave drugs lying around the house, what they might not know are the hidden dangers sitting in places where kids can easily get to — cleaning supplies found under your kitchen sink are killing kids.

    B.J. VanRoosendaal, Substance Abuse Counselor: “They can get it in their parents’ home, the neighbor’s home, maybe grandma’s house.”

    Easily available and cheap–kids as young as fourth graders start “huffing” as part of a popular fad.

    Statistics show 20-percent of Utah’s kids between the ages of 13 and 19 have experimented with inhaling chemical vapors. Chronic use can cause permanent changes in their brains that may one day lead to death.

    B.J. VanRoosendaal, Substance Abuse Counselor: “Inhalants can cause death by suffocation. What happens is a substance you are inhaling replaces the oxygen in your system.”

    Several kids across the nation have recently died after inhaling, and while narcotic use is down in Utah, huffing is up.

    B.J. VanRoosendaal, Substance Abuse Counselor: “We’re below the national average in everything, except inhalants.”

    It’s a problem parents seem to know little about. But one clue they can watch for is a strong chemical odor on their child’s breath or clothing, or a constantly red and runny nose. And watch for hidden aerosol cans.

    B.J. VanRoosendaal, Substance Abuse Counselor: “Unless they were heavy into it, you might not be aware.”

    WOW!!! That “choking” is extremely dangerous. Kids die dong that all the time. You should be very concerned about that.

  4. Sydney says:

    Paint thinner

  5. JubJub says:

    Those probably aren’t spices.
    The paint is right.
    The kids probably still “sniff glue” these days.

    That “choking” thing produces an erotic sensation – however, some youngsters have taken it too far and didn’t make it back. They died. I hope you can get some help – 3 teens is more than a handful, when your dealing with life and death issues.

    Sounds like you need to talk to them and ask them I would do a one on one with them youngest first you might get the truth out of him or her the easiest. it sounds like they might be experiencing with marijuana that is probably not spices unless one of them is in a cooking class then ask what kind of spice it is,if you get the truth go easy on them but let them know you will not allow it in your home, because it is illegal and you dont want to go to jail or them to go to jail. then set up a consequence if they break the rules and follow thru the 16 yr old no dr license 14 yr old no friends over or whatever things they like the most my daughter didnt get her license till she turned eighteen i would not be responsible if she hurt someone while driving under the influence. Good luck
