I didn't realise it was illegal to do it for fun?!
is it?! they had it available at insomniac's ball..
and they said it killed people - evil drugs.
if it is illegal I might report it to the police and have the place shut down.
makes your brain feel all spongy and makes you fall over. Also, gives you a headache so you shouldn't do much.
to pain - that's why doctors and dentists use it.
and makes you fall over and laugh and hallucinate.
make you briefly light-headed.
Incidentally, it's rubbish.
it's not funny!
In the United States, possession of nitrous oxide is legal under federal law and is not subject to DEA purview. It is, however, regulated by the Food and Drug Administration under the Food Drug and Cosmetics Act; prosecution is possible under its "misbranding" clauses, prohibiting the sale or distribution of nitrous oxide for the purpose of human consumption. Many states have laws regulating the possession, sale, and distribution of nitrous oxide; but these are normally limited to either banning distribution to minors, or to setting an upper limit for the amount of nitrous oxide that may be sold without special license, rather than banning possession or distribution completely. In most jurisdictions, like at the federal level, sale or distribution for the purpose of human consumption is illegal.
In the United Kingdom, recreational use of nitrous oxide is illegal, though sale and possession for non-inhalant use is legal for adults over the age of 18.
In New Zealand, recreational use of nitrous oxide, as well as purchase or possession with the intent to do so, is illegal. Sales of nitrous oxide have been regulated since 2005.
it makes you lips go blue and your hands shake if you do it too much
but then so does too many Jelly Tots
I was so waaaasted on Jelly Tots last night. I think my "guy" must have cut them with Tutti Fruttis.
only Chemists are allowed to dispense it in gas form. So no one has a licence to sell it to you and so are breaking the law. Its not illegal to use, just to dispense in gas form.
and it can starve your brain of oxygen if you do to much, just like only breathing one gas is likely to do if you do it longer than your body can cope without oxygen. Duh.
coz clubs are blatantly selling it for inhalation - Chalk, insomniacs ball.. and err others.
they're allowed to sell it, but it's illegal to use it as a drug. That's why bottles of poppers are sometimes labelled 'room fragrance', lolz.
at camden market.
i hate poppers, i call them POOPERS because i hate them that much.
I used to love poppers, what was it called? Liquid Gold? I gave myself a massive headache at a Supergrass gig and then someone overdosed a bit and threw up on my shoes..
at Leeds fest by the medicaly people there, when my back fucked up. But then it just made me giddy and I couldn't keep still, thus making my back hurt considerably more.
As it gets sold in clubs and I'm pretty sure that there are about a hundred stalls trying to sell it at Leeds festival.
is legal in this country.
I don't like it...
a few weeks ago, I was very drunk and administering myself with whatever drugs I could lay my hands on, laughing gas was quite fun. It just made me sit down hard and giggle. I only did a couple tho.. everything in moderation..
I saw Ann, Fidel and co at Catch just before you got there..!
and swallowed my earring in the night, the nice nurse gave me laughing gas so she could pull it out. My mother worked at the hospital and was very embarrassed at my loud laughing and shrieking with joy..
there good if ya wanna let go big style during adult fun sessions
consequently the 'let go big style' comment..
I was just taken aback.
My bum baby is loose enough as it is.
are not nice!
I had about twelve balloons in a row... at about 10am. Seedy-a-rama. Dressed in silly clothes at the time too, watching Hari Krishna's hang naked children from trees... Christ..
that's not good for your brain..
never get into a car driven by someone who has taken ecstasy
I tried some of this at Chalk on saturday...
RE: The selling it at chalk, so it must be legal thing, they pretty much blatantly flog e's at Chalk too, so I don't think anyones gonna get busted for flogging balloons, no?
that will make it illegal to sell in clubs and at festivals because of the whole brain-oxygen-starving bit. So it used to be legal to do it for fun, but not anymooooooooooore.
get ya selves whipped cream dispensers!
