Are your teens getting high off household products? You might be able to keep illegal drugs away from your kids, but now parents have to worry about “huffing”—inhaling the contents in aerosol cans. A Kiln Mississippi family is speaking out after their teenage son, Charlie Stroud, died from “huffing” the contents of a can of computer keyboard cleaner. A classmate told Charlie how to do it. Charlie went home, huffed and died. There are hundreds – if not thousands of products on the market or under the sink that could be lethal if huffed. Should more be done to stress the dangers of huffing LEGAL aerosol products? Did you ever “huff?” Have you talked to your kids about “huffing” and drugs?” How do you successfully tell teenagers not to do drugs or to huff – knowing they will be tempted by their peers?
