    I was into photography in high school. A number of my classmates used the canned air to get high. I learned then that jsut about anything in a spray can can be used for a high, and probably has been.

    I didn't realize this wasn't widely known, though my husband didn't know it until I mentioned it. He bought it for cleaning out the computer. And was surprised when I locked it up. And this was right after we married - difficult child wasn't a year old.

    I am sorry I didn't share this, and I hope that none of you has a child who uses it.

    I am sure that many of you are aware of the dangers of huffing PAM or other oils. It is a killer because it coats the lungs with the oil. I hope that those who haven't heard this already can be aware. And share with their kids about it = if the kids won't take it as a dare.
