Inhalant Dangers

While there are many risks with inhalant abuse, several dangers are unique to this method of getting high. Even when used for the intended purposes, inhaling everyday chemicals can be dangerous due to toxicity; thus, sniffing these chemicals on purpose can result in major health hazards and even death. Some gases have lethal potential when stored under high pressure and released for use and inhaled suddenly. They can instantly freeze the respiratory system of the user, causing sudden death. There is no indication that this is going to happen until the user inhales the vapors of the gas directly from the container and stops breathing due to frostbite.
