Funny or Scary? Teens Getting High On Cough Medicine

Time was, teens sneaked cigarettes or broke into their parents' liquor cabinet. The hooked up teens smoked joints or did other illicit and illegal drugs. For whatever reason, one out of ten teens are now "Robotripping," or taking over-the-counter cold and flu medicines for their hallucinatory, sometimes out-of-body, highs. (The name comes from the brand "Robitussin," the second most abused cough medicine.) What, people, aren't 1,001 cable channels and MySpace entertaining enough? Sheesh! Giggle Girls, is "Robotripping"...

People "roboing" when I was in high school in the early '90s. It's not really a new thing...

Apparently when Nyquil had codine in it, people would buy it to get their kicks off. Robotripping sounds very...robotic. ~M~

when i was a teenager we used to suck the nitris out of whipped cream cans. i'm telling you, if there is a chemical, a teenager will find it.

Crazy. Just like the "Dust Off" thing. You know, the cans of "air" we use to clean up our keyboards... I have a friend that tried dusting, or whatever it's referred to as, the dumb thing is he sprayed it on his arm and it burned his skin, yet he still decided to put that stuff in his lungs. I don't get it.
