WASHINGTON - About 3.1 million people between the ages of 12 to 25 — or about 5 percent of the age group — have used over-the-counter cough and cold medicine to get high, a U.S. government survey found.

In large doses, cough syrups and cold pills can be used to induce hallucinations, “out-of-body” experiences or other effects, officials said.

This is nothing new, why is it news? I'm 45 and there were kids doing this when I was in high school.

Yep. Between the cold meds and the whip cream....we all managed decades ago to figure out a way to get high. I'm glad I'm older now and get the good stuff from a real doctor.
