WARNING About Air Duster Aerosol Cans and your Children!!

By
Real Estate Agent with John L. Scott Real Estate DRE# 201209408

After watching a story on the Today Show on NBC, I feel compelled to write about children buying Air Duster or similar products to get high!!!

If you have a computer, chances are that you have this air can to dust off the computers cracks and crevices. If you do, make sure your children are not using it for huffing. They inhale it to get high. It is very dangerous, can kill or cause brain damage. Please be aware of this and know that they sent child actors into various stores to buy these products and although it is not supposed to be sold to anyone under 18, they were able to buy it. Some of the stores employees knew about the ban, many did not and sold it to them. Some made comments about it being dangerous, but sold it anyway!

Parents, talk to your children about huffing and warn them that it isn't safe and can cause brain damage or even death.

Good post for everyone to be aware of what their children might be doing with this product.  We as parents need to educate them about the dangers of huffing.

Caren:  Thanks for posting this reminder! I, too, have watched shows on this "Huffing" and it is horrifying!  Sad, so so sad, some of the things I young people are getting into.

We had a piece on this today on our local news and it was absolutely amazing.

Hi Caren, Excellent information to pass along, as I am sure that many have not yet heard of huffing. It is very scary!

Hi Caren, I didn't know about this particular product , thanks for the warning.  I hate to think of all the dangers out there for kids.

I just want to protect the children who might get enticed into doing this horrible huffing. Knowledge is a weapon!

That is really sad to me. As a former high school teacher, I know how real the threat of such things can be, but it makes me ask whatever happen to going outside and playing!?!?! Am I that old???

When I was in grade school we (well, not me personally, but my generation) used to huff those magic markers and eat the paste. Times have changed.

Yes, I remember the times my fellow students huffed magic markers and ate paste. I am happy to announce that I did not participate in those trends!
