Holiday spices often abused for cheap highs, says toxicologist

Holiday spices often abused for cheap highs, says toxicologist: "Holiday Spices Often Abused for Cheap Highs, Says Toxicologist
Dec. 17, 2012 — Watch your kitchen cupboards this season as thrillseekers look to common holiday baking ingredients for a rise -- cinnamon, nutmeg and even marshmallows are the primary ingredient in trendy risky behavior. "The envelope is always being pushed to create something new that will get attention, potentially create a drug-like effect and can pass under the radar of law enforcers," "

As a kid, I tried banana peels and nutmeg. It was a hippie thing. However, I did see a picture of the lungs of a nutmeg smoker--YUCK--really scared me and I stopped. The "high" wasn't very good anyway and the nutmeg stank.  Never the less, watch your kids with this--especially 5th through jr high--they are looking for adventure and who knows what tehy hear on the streets--just a friendly reminder to remain vigilant.
