Inhalant abuse is very prevalent among younger teenagers and unknown to them, inhalants are deadly. Inhalants are considered any chemical you can only inhale to get high. Some chemicals are gasoline, markers, computer dust cleaner, and some glues. Most households have at least one of those items if not more. Younger kids are gravitating towards using inhalants to get high and yet most do not know the dangers in ingesting toxic chemicals. While these chemicals will not harm you if used properly, when used to get high, the price is high.

Brain damage occurs because when an individual uses inhalants, it cuts off oxygen to the brain.
