A New Way Teens Are Getting Drunk
Have you seen the news stories about teens using HAND SANITIZER to get drunk? Scary stuff if you're a parent of a teen or tween. The story was featured on CBSNEWS and I ran across this info on BuzzFeed.com.
After the jump, check out a few things you might want to know about hand sanitizer.
- A bottle of sanitizer contains equivalent of about five liquor shots.
- Teens sometimes mix it with Listerine.
- Others use salt to separate the alcohol from the sanitizer to make a drink similar to a shot.
- Drinking this stuff can give you diarrhea, blindness, memory loss and damage your organs.
The most important point for parents: buy the FOAM style sanitizer instead of GEL because it is harder to extract alcohol from the foam than it is the gel.
