I had never heard of this and I bet many young people haven't either. My instincts are this type of information can be dangerous as it just gives a new way to get high. BOSTON (Reuters) - At least two people have become intoxicated by drinking hand-sanitizing gels, a potentially deadly habit, doctors reported on Wednesday

Yes this is crazy. The kids will keep on and everything will banned from the shelves. There will come a time when you will need a special license to buy everything. I know the kids can't be that bored!

I just don't see the logic in why kids would want to get high this way. It's sad to hear all the stories about how kids are getting high.

I tell you, I was young once, but never would I go as far as this. That is crazy. It was a new thing when I was in my early 20's for the kids to do "whipits", suck the air out of Cool whip cans for a few second high. Of course too much of this caused nerve damage numping the side of their face. :-(

Wow that is terrible. I cant imagine doing this dangerous things going on these days, just to get what they call a "high". I dont think they realize the consequences of this and unfortunately sometimes its too late before they do. I have never heard of this exactly but they are comming up with different things to try everyday. What a shame!

I havent heard that, but it doesnt surprise me. I dont know why kids do that kind of stuff. I know the local auto parts stores, will not sell any auto cleaning equipment or paints to children under 18 to avoid potential misuses like the one you mentioned. THat is terrible, but thats they type of world we unfortunately live in.

For some people (not all kids either) getting high is their mission in life and they will try eveything until something works anyway. If not this something else. I actually think the publicizing can be a good thing. It can alert parents that those odd little empty cans and jars are not as innocent as they might think.
