Uh oh, how long before wasp spray is locked up in case and we'll need a form of ID to purchase it?

The reasons for using wasp spray as an alternative form of meth, he said, could be a result of what he described as a more restrictive opioid market.

“It's not surprising that as the opioid market becomes more restricted, people are turning to other things," he said.

“It’s a sign or a symptom of a larger problem we have … we work on the supply, but there’s also the demand and that’s a lot harder. If you restrict the supply of some things, they’ll turn to something else," he said.
end the war on drugs, people will seek their high anywhere they can even if it kills them. Once decriminalized less potent/detrimental forms can then be developed.

If it's like other sprays, I think they spray it into a paper bag and inhale.

Just the thought makes me ill.

I realize some people say these kids use this stuff only because they cannot get the 'good drugs', but thats the thing...its very easy to find drugs/ drug dealers today.


Meth, heroin, coke, etc, are ALL OVER the counties in my area, and its likely the same everywhere.


I think it may a cost issue, they just dont have the money for the real drugs.

Good for them.

What is the problem? And I am being 100% serious. If morons want to wreck/end their own lives over copping a cheap buzz, what do you or I care? Doesn't affect me in any way whatsoever if some dope wants to smoke poison.

Thanks to the theft racket we know as the welfare state, I am actually better off if people who are almost guaranteed to be a burden on society just off themselves an save us all the money and effort of taking care of them for a few decades.
We need regulations and oversight against this sort of thing. Government is there to protect us from ourselves and wasp spray is the devil.

Aint that right, nanny staters?

People have been huffing industrial chemicals and everything else under the sun for a long time. It's not anything new and it's awful.

To say it is awful is putting it nicely. What's really sad is that unsuspecting people, especially kids, might end up consuming it.

Don't kid yourself. There is no such thing as any "unsuspecting" people who will end up consuming it. Anyone, and I mean anyone of any age including kids, who huffs poisonous chemicals knows exactly what they're doing and what they're using and why they're using it. They might not be intelligent and knowledgeable about it, but they definitely are not unsuspecting.
