Police Note Rise in Inhalant Abuse in NC

Via the Mount Airy News in North Carolina:

The Mount Airy police department has witnessed an increase in huffing-related incidents recently.

On March 27th, two women were charged with inhaling toxic vapors after they stole cans of computer duster. On February 25th, another woman was charged with inhaling toxic vapors after she was found passed out at a shopping center.

Police urge parents to watch for possible abuse, since duster is not a controlled substance.
