As a police officer, I arrested people who huffed paint. The gold Krylon was the most popular. It burns out the cells and permanently damages the brain. Inhaling alcohol won't cause the same immediate brain damage, but it is bad enough since you can't gauge the dose. Kids will try anything to get a thrill. Outlawing it won't stop it. Only education will.

Huffing ether isn't any thing new. It's been around a long time. The people that huff seem to go room temperature, and never wake up again.

Huffing paint and huffing food (alcohol) is not the same, paint has toxic derivative called petroleum distillates.

Alcohol is a natural sterilizer and infection fighter and may be beneficial if you think about it and the spread of airborne colds and flu and molasses syrup in the lungs of smokers. Its better for the body than toxic opiates and gas blends of hospitals made by 3M and Monsanto. Some alcohol vapors mixed with some oxygen could be an accidental blessing to remove 50+ toxic prescription drugs for pain and suffering the elderly use every day.

I think the worries of the police and state gestapos are premature and unfounded. If anyone overloads on excessive use they will just take a nap. And its not toxic, a drug, or proven unsafe. Speculation is not fact nor a science nor a truth. Doctors have always said a glass of wine a day is good for everyone on many levels and stress being the killer.

In times of strife and a bad economy, our ingenuity is amazing, one case of beer to supply a hundred guests with smiles is resourceful.
