Well, I have always wondered, is sniffing permanent markers really as bad as smoking weed (thats what I heard), when if it is, why are they allowed in schools, every kid sniffs them atleast once in there lifetime?

Why do people do it as well, when it doesn't give you a high or anything?

I found some things on it (not facts yet),

The Short Term

Sniffing can make you sick. For example, victims may become nauseated, forgetful, and unable to see things clearly. Some victims lose control of their body, including the use of arms and legs. You don't look real cool stumbling around high from inhalants. Side effects can last 15 to 45 minutes after sniffing. People who sniff often act intoxicated and experience short-term memory loss as well.

The Long Term

* potential "Sudden Sniffing Death" even for first-time users
* permanent brain damage
* hearing loss
* increased heart rate
* arm or leg spasms
* bone marrow damage
* liver and kidney damage
* damage to an unborn baby, if pregnant.

Chronic inhalant abusers may exhibit such symptoms as anxiety, excitability, irritability, or restlessness that can lead to violent behavior.

Its a small form of solvent abuse. I can assure you it would give you a high if you continually sniffed it for a bit, and its highly dangerous in that case. But having a quick wiff of a marker in a lesson isn't dangerous.

How the hell does sniffing markers give you bone marrow damage? How the hell does it affect your kidneys and liver?

I am now wondering what makes you get high from markers.

methinks google is the answer.

^ probably the same stuff as is in poppers. poppers suck. there is no point in inhalants whatsoever.


yet i still have some poppers for special occasions.

it will get into your bloodstrem by osmosis in the lungs, probably damaging the liver and kidneys.
it will mix with oxygen in the bloods haemoglobin which is used in the construction of bone marrow, continuin with damage to that.
basically the chemicals get into the blood
this probably accounts why people are dizzy when high, because of oxygen deprivation in the muscles, so the stumble alot

Sniffing markers, glue, air freshner, ect. is WAY more dangerous than weed. Inhalants can kill you on the first use. Benadryl and cough medicine is the way to go!

You can now even play the piano. Regardless of whether you could before.

im fairly certain that most permanent markers nowadays are non-toxic so any 'high' people claim to get from them is entirely placebo. true inhalants are probably the most physically damaging category of drugs out there. just ask this guy:

Remember through smells
Remember through colors
Remember through towns

they make your brain itch, and i don't think it even has nerves that could cause an itching sensation, thus making it probably not good for you,

but i still smell them at least once a day
