Glue-Sniffing on the Rise in Vietnam

From Bernama in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Officials in Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh City are concerned about the recent increase in teenage use of inhalants, specifically a light yellow liquid glue. The article notes that previously this issue had “plagued Western countries.”

The article interviews teens on why they sniff glue and frighteningly, some of the kids are only 9 or 10 years old. One states, "We are inhaling glue, it is not drugs. We are not afraid of being arrested like drug users, but it still makes us euphoric,"
