Inhalant Warning from South Africa

From the Limpopo Informant in Polokwane,South Africa:

An interesting inhalant abuse warning about huffing and some of the new trends related to it. The article notes that a majority of children in the 8th grade are involved with huffing.

Additionally, it notes, "other popular substances young teens huff include insect repellent, thinners, baking spray and deodorant. But by far the most dangerous could be when they take a light bulb, break it off at the neck, pour methylated spirits into it, heat it at the bottom and inhale the vapour that is produced."
