Would your kid do this?

I was just watching dr phil and there was a kid on there who was sniffing the candy 'smarties'! and a kool-aid drink. OM goodness, I am hoping that my kid would never try this, but you never know! Crazy.

  • When I was in Jr. High a bunch of kids would snort Pixy Stix.
    I preferred eating them lol.
    I cant stand having things being up my nose, I can't even use nasal spray.

  • While in middle school the boys snorted the pixie stix and crushed the smarties to snort them. Last I knew all those guys were snorting the real stuff now.

  • My daughter actually snorted crystal light on the playground last year with a group of kids and they all got suspended for a day. The principal said she could have called the police and had the kids arrested because it was "using a substance as a drug" and was a crime. Personally, I don't know what the attraction is to snorting sugar!

  • I've known so many people who did things like that as kids, and they all turned out alright. I think it may just be a stage. I'm sure you remember being double-dog-dared to do things. :)

  • It never occured to me to put anything in my nose except my finger and it had better have had a tissue around it. I was a teenager in the 70's when cocaine was still legal and made the front page of Time so many times. I never thought of putting that in my nose and it was legal!
