The New High for Teenagers: Smoking Alcohol
This is very scary. Teens are getting drunk by 'smoking alcohol.' They aren't drinking the booze, they are inhaling it to get an instant high.
According to the Today Show, "Doctors say it's incredibly dangerous and can be extremely addictive. Pure alcohol shooting into your brain. Doctors are issuing an urgent warning: Don't try this at home."
Steve Pasierb, from the partnership at drugfree.org told the Today Show: "These videos scare the hell out of me...It's binge drinking in an instant. It's like doing five or six shots into your bloodstream right away."
Another problem, is that the act has gone viral, with millions of views on YouTube. Also, there is a myth that it's not illegal. Not True.
