People are finding new ways to get high all the time. I guess pleasure is human nature and that will never stop, BUT these ways to get high have taken it a little bit too far. Check out these ten ways people have been getting high lately and let us know what you think in the comments.
Insane Ways of Getting High
Exploding all across America is the new trend of getting high on bath salts. More and more people are snorting it in order to get a cocaine like high. Many states have already passed laws making it illegal, but not all.
This is an oldie, but people are still doing it today. Mostly kids are getting high on markers, but adults have been known to do it too.
What else can I say about this one?
Right off Mom’s spice rack, Nutmeg is known to give users a mild hallucinogenic high. The problem is, when people smoke too much the mild high turns into a terrible nightmare.
Dextromethorphan is an active ingredient in cough syrup that, when taken in excess, produces hallucinations that compare to LSD. Popular mostly with kids cough syrup is responsible for sending hundreds of people to the hospital (and sometimes mental ward) every year.
A report released by the New England Journal of Medicine describes the case of French twins who were hospitalized with scaly skin on their legs, hands and elbows; urinary retention; unsteady balance; and mental lethargy.The sisters also exhibited signs of intracranial hypertension. Subsequent blood tests revealed severe anemia and low white blood cell counts. Not until a hidden stash of mothballs was discovered in their room could doctors explain their symptoms. The pair had been “bagging” — inhaling fumes from the mothball bag — to get high each day, even while hospitalized. One had been bagging two months; the other, only a few weeks. Stay away from Grandma’s chest!
By sticking their head in a gas over with no flam, the fumes from the gas can cause you to get high, but if you breathe in to much you can suffocate and die. So, don’t do it.
I remember when I was a kid a bunch of people out in California were doing this and dying because once they went on concise, no one was there to pull them off the rope. Basically, kids are choking themselves to the point of almost going lights-out. It is said to produce a head-rush high that is apparently addicting and very dangerous.
This has got to be one of the oddest ways to get high, in my opinion. Two tones of differing frequencies are played simultaneously, one in each of your ears, through stereo headphones. Your mind then perceives a low beating sound, when in fact there is no such thing. Thus, producing an idiotic high.
Jenkem A.K.A. Fermented Poop and Urine
If I ever caught my kids huffing fermented poop I don’t know what the hell I would do… apparently neither do Florida parents because kids have been huffing this poop and pee mixture in order to get high. Jenkem has origins in Africa where raw sewage is fermented to produce a gas for inhaling. The clever youth of Florida have figured out how to create their own Jenkem by placing the waste in a glass container and placing a balloon over the opening. Let it sit in the sun, like poop sun tea, for a few hours or days and the gas will separate into the balloon. The gas can then be inhaled to produce a stinky yet strong high.
