Police in the United Kingdom are warning about a dangerous new trend of teens lighting plastic garbage cans on fire and inhaling their fumes.

Authorities were prompted to speak out about the bizarre new craze after several "extremely dangerous" incidents were reported in the Greater Manchester area, the Mirror reports.

Dyes used to make the trash cans - more commonly known as wheelie bins in the U.K. - emit a fume when lit on fire that can produce a high when inhaled, much like other solvents such as glue or gas. Fumes from the plastic bins, however, are "highly toxic" and reportedly more dangerous than other solvents.

The incidents in Manchester were concentrated in one specific area, Longsight Park, according to police.

I'm still not convinced. 🤔

I honestly think Fox may have gotten the article from some kind of bunk fake spun news from overseas.

Why on Earth would anyone stoop this low when you could abuse household items like rubbing alcohol, cleaners, glue, paint, etc. Let's not mention actual drugs that are more commonly abused. Yes, if it's real, it's a drug technically but so would be ingesting the feces of an animal to get high, and not something grown from it either.

It'd be epic to deny ignorance on Fox or any mainstream media organization.

Steven Tyler from Aerosmith used to smoke plastic combs for the high when he was a kid.
The ones they would sell in the old condom machines in bathrooms.

Smoking plastic isnt new. Just being noticed again!

I've lived in Longsight and it's a grim rough place, I'm not surprised kids round there want to get off their heads in the cheapest way possible.

Hey man, it could be worse, much worse;




Jenkem is an inhalant and hallucinogen created from fermented human waste. In the mid-1990s, it was reported to be a popular street drug among Zambian street children. They would put the feces and urine in a jar and cover it with a balloon then let it ferment out in the sun, then afterwards they would inhale the fumes created.


Jenkem - Wiki

I'm with ToysForAdults (how appropriate, lol), just legalise the 'erb and let people get on with it, if one is so inclined they're 'gonna get high in one way or another.

If I remember right, up in Russia they're drinking high-alcohol-content shampoo and dying, just for kicks.

Fun times,

Can they not just go into a convenience store or all night Esso garage, and purchase a can of gas or lighter fluid to buzz, like any other common variety every day back of the bus junkie bastard types? LoL

I think the title makes it sound more like it's a UK epidemic but it's only one area of Manchester, England.

I also think it's irresponsible for the paper to report that the dye used in the bins can cause a high...

Wait.

Is this actually happening?
lol.

You know what if they're actually stupid enough to be doing this, let them.

Cigarettes and coc aine aren't hard to come by,
why on earth people would inhale plastic and dog s*** fumes is beyond reasoning.

Remove all the warning labels and let nature take its course is my thinking on the matter.

Fentanyl will be the real contender, it's 50-100 times more potent than Morphine.

It's replacing/supplementing Heroin(Smack) on our streets and in our town and cities as we speak.

And a simple 3-milligram dose of Fentanyl is enough to kill an average-sized adult male.

FFS... I wonder how many of these american pod swollowing losers and trash can huffing Britons suffer from a lack of wilderness education including, hunting, fishing, fire building, shelter building, etc and etc.


Swallowing a tide pod, and snuffing a trash fire.... sheer stupidity from both sides of the pond.


Expose our children to the wild to increase common sense!!!
