Deodorant Pulled From Shelves in Australia Because of Inhalant Abuse

Via ABC News in Australia:

Rexona deodorant has been pulled from supermarket shelves in Australia and is now being sold from behind the counter due to a “spiraling rate of inhalant abuse by the town’s children.” In the last two weeks, the Central Australian Youth Link Up Service (CAYUS) has collected almost 500 used cans of deodorant from public places.  A CAYUS manager notes that the situation is “out of control” and that a large number of young children are involved with “more than 50 kids under 12 who have been referred to welfare because of their sniffing.”
