Police: Kids snorting ‘Smarties’ candy to get high

SamrtiesPORTSMOUTH, R.I. – Kids do all sorts of crazy things to try and get high. The latest trend is experimenting with a drug that’s not a drug at all.

Kids as young as middle school age are crushing up Smarties candies and snorting them. Recently, videos have popped up on YouTube, showing the proof.

A Rhode Island school recently sent out an email that alerted parents to the problem after several students were busted. Snorting the candy could lead to scarring of the nasal cavity, infection and lung irritation. It’s interesting to note, Smarties contain nothing that provides any sort of high.

So far, there haven’t been any reports of this happening in Washington.

    Police kids don’t seem very smarty. And if kids didn’t know about this before, they do now. Didn’t you guys learn anything from the “Toss the boiling water ” into the freezing air and make snow. CNN did this, to copy you-tube, and then 50 people were injured trying it. The power of media. Maybe you’re not so smartie…….(oh boy)

    the "big" kids used to do this when I was in elementary school, and I am now in college. Apparently kids aren't getting any smarter.
