Huffing on the Increase and a Concern in New York

Via the Glen Falls Post Star in New York: 

Earlier this year a 20 year old Greenwich man was found unconscious and nearly died after huffing computer dusting spray.   Police noted they took “garbage bags full of empty cans out of his apartment.” 

Cambridge-Greenwich Police Chief George Bell said his department has encountered a number of situations in which young people have been inhaling products in an effort to get high. Additionally, the executive director of The Council for Prevention of Alcohol and Substance Abuse in Hudson Falls, said “huffing” of aerosol products has gained popularity on and off over the past 5 or 6 years and that it is on the upswing in the region.
