  • Kids aren't that bright are they. IF they want to snort candy, why wouldn't they to with pixy sticks? IT's already in powder form and comes with a handy straw. Same with those packets of coolaid that comes with a stick. I loved those, but never imagined using htem as drugs. When I was younger, a friend whould spray an arasol can into the cap and sniff it. I never understood that. I guess kids just get more creative as we learn their secrets. I just don't understand why anyone would do that.

  • Me either! It makes me sick. I also heard of the choking game that kids as young as 10 years old do. And some have died - I saw an episode on Dr. G. Medical examiner on that subject. The world is a very scary place. I don't want to let my baby out of my sight.

  • Why on earth would you snort candy? It couldn't possibly get you "high"! The only thing I can think that it would do is give you a bloody nose, and if it didn't do that it would hurt really bad! What is wrong with kids these days?? That is insane!!

  • On the program the kids said," It made them look cool to puff a cloud of smoke". But according to docs - it will hurt their lungs and throat. It is just nuts!
