Apparently there's a new drug on the street and I seriously am in a state of disbelief. It's inexpensive and throughly disgusting.....

This Crap Gets You High

The Sheriff's department of Collier County, FL have put out a bulletin warning parents of a new drug that the kids are favoring. It's called "Jenkem" and is supposed to give you hallucinations and get you high. As with any drugs, there's a strong price you pay. Jenkem tastes like shit. Literally!
You see Jenkem is made out of shit and piss from the sewers. Kids put the shit in a bottle and let it ferment for a few days. It develop a gas which they put in a balloon and inhale. The after taste is said to linger for daaayyys. 
The street name is butthash, runners or wase.
I know what I'm doing tonight! Shit, I know what Britney's doing tonight too. Kids these days! They can't just suck the freon out of the a/c like we used to. Ugh.   

My question is, how exactly did this discovery come about?

Bubba: Hey Cletus, I'm bored and I have a sewer near my house. Let's play in poop
Cletus: Hmmmm I wonder what would happen if we bottled this
Bubba: That there is a good idea, and then we can throw a balloon on top of it and throw it at people.
Cletus: Naw Bubba, I think we should breath it in, it is food after all
Bubba: That there is a good idea.  Yummy
*inhales the gas*
Cletus: Dude I'm so high right now.
Bubba: I'm pretty sure my last remaining brain cell has died........

yeah, the icon pretty much says it all

LOL! WTF?! People are so desperate to the point of getting a nasty drug to get high? ... that's nasty!

Aren't sewer gases generally poisonous?

Maybe the nasty kids will be naturally selected out when they poison themselves with their own poop.

What happened to good old masturbation?
Orgasms are cheaper than drugs ...

something tells me if they're stupid enough to do this, they're too stupid to know how to properly get themselves off

And there's this plant called salvia that idiots are using to get high. They say the leaves, when smoked, make you hallucinate.

I wouldn't call people who use salvia idiots. It doesn't really make you get high, it's a dissociative- in the same drug class as Ketamine and DXM (the main ingredient in cough syrup). It DOES make you hallucinate, quite strongly, so that's not just talk. Not really for the lighthearted, and it should only be used by experienced drug users or people prepared for it. If people just wanna get high, they should smoke some pot.

For the record, Jenkem is used primarily in Africa, in Zambia (if I recall). The way it started was when poor African kids could not afford glue to sniff or were not able to steal petrol to huff either.

It actually makes perfect sense someone would think of the idea- I'm pretty sure that one of the big dangers about being near sewages or being people who work in the area is that the sewage releases carbon dioxide (I think), which is very dangerous to your health in huge proportions. The suspected reason for the hallucinations involving jenkem is that the brain is depleted from oxygen for awhile, which thus would cause the high and hallucinations.

On the other hand, there has been NO substantial evidence it's becoming wide-spread in America. There have only been TWO news articles on the drug and its process, and those were in 1996 and 1999 (if I remember right). They were both strict to Zambia, nowhere else.

The whole ordeal started when some kid on a forum said he was trying it, but there's really been no evidence he actually really did try it or was just trying to create a stir, and there's no evidence that American kids are starting to do it to get high.

Err, or carbon monoxide.

I'm really not sure which one it is, gaaaah, my lack of Chemistry education (never took a Chemistry course in my life, took one in college for a few weeks before I dropped because of personal reasons) is made of fail.

Oh yeah, and besides, if kids in America want to have hallucinations, they can get some salvia, it's completely legal. If they want to have weird auditory and processing experiences, they can get some DXM (it's in cough syrup).

If they just want to get high, they can smoke some pot.

The only reason anyone ever was making jenkem is because they were poor and had no other options. America =/= poor. It's pretty easy to find drugs around here, especially amongst teenagers.

Obviously, I'm not against responsible drug use, but I think huffing is just stupid. People have been known to die from just one hit of doing it. I also don't think it's as much of a problem as parents and the media makes it out to be, either. Like I said, kids have plenty of other ways to get high. :/ I'm pretty sure the entire Jenkem thing is just all bullshit and no one is really actually doing it. (Although I wouldn't be surprised if people start trying it once they hear about it, but it's still hard for me to imagine very many teenagers willing to inhale their own waste-air.)

People fucking disgust me. I really don't understand drugs.
