Parents Be Warned! New Teenage Trend Combines Getting High with Light Arson

When you combine a powerful chemical high with the potent adrenaline kick you get from committing arson, the teenage brain becomes overwhelmed and unfortunately excited.

Young people are often daring, by nature. 

This is part of growing up.  You need to test your limits to know what the consequences of your actions could or would be.  Much of the time, this carelessness occurs in the realms of physical and emotional pain.  Maybe we were going a little too fast down that rocky hill on our bikes, and we have the cast to prove it.  Or, perhaps, we let our hormonal urges lead us blindly into one heck of a heartbreak.

Either way, pushing the limits can be healthy in the long-term while painful in the short term, at least in some of these more innocent examples.

Unfortunately for the youth at large today, there are far too many limits being pushed in far more harmful arenas, including a wild new trend of huffing the fumes from burning plastic trash cans.

Police in the United Kingdom are warning about a dangerous new trend of teens lighting plastic garbage cans on fire and inhaling their fumes.

Authorities were prompted to speak out about the bizarre new craze after several “extremely dangerous” incidents were reported in the Greater Manchester area, the Mirrorreports.

Dyes used to make the trash cans – more commonly known as wheelie bins in the U.K. – emit a fume when lit on fire that can produce a high when inhaled, much like other solvents such as glue or gas. Fumes from the plastic bins, however, are “highly toxic” and reportedly more dangerous than other solvents.

The incidents in Manchester were concentrated in one specific area, Longsight Park, according to police.

While many of these kids would get the same effect from permanent markers, rubber cement, or even cannabis, the addition of the minor arson certainly feeds the thrill-seeking portion of the teenage brain, creating not only a true, chemical high, but an unfortunately addicting shot of adrenalin as well.

Of course, the damage to the lungs and minds of these young people is a major concern to health officials in the UK, prompting a litany of warnings about the practice.

President Trump Pushes For Massive $2 Trillion Infrastructure Bill To Be ‘Phase 4’ Coronavirus Relief Package

Published

on

President Trump is advocating for Congress to adopt what he callas a “very big and bold” infrastructure investment in future legislation to help fight against the coronavirus, which is currently making thousands of people seriously ill all across the country. The president advocated for a $2 trillion addition to the congressional economic relief bills that are to help workers and businesses who are suffering during this unprecedented pandemic. Trump has stated that he hopes to stimulate employment through a number of federal programs. Here’s more from Washington Examiner: “With interest rates for the United States being at ZERO, this is the time to do our decades long awaited Infrastructure Bill. It should be VERY BIG & BOLD, Two Trillion Dollars, and be focused solely on jobs and rebuilding the once great infrastructure of our Country! Phase 4,” Trump tweeted. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1245000074167541761 Before the historic relief package was passed last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said lawmakers must begin drafting a fourth relief package to deal with the coronavirus pandemic, arguing that the bill that was making its way through Congress was insufficient to address the needs of state and local governments, workers, and other entities affected by the spread of the virus. The economic consequences of the actions we’ve taken in order to fight against this virus have caused quite a stir among the American people, with some folks stating that perhaps the measures taken to stop the spread of the illness are actually going to end up doing more harm than good. Many businesses will be closed permanently due to the shutdown and many others out of work will slide into a hole financially speaking. Perhaps a better measure would’ve been to quarantine those who are sick and allow the young and healthy to remain working? Then again, this disease…

N.H. Gov. Sununu Seeks Disaster Declaration For His State; Extends ‘Stay Home’ Order To May 4

The state of New Hampshire is seeking to receive a federal disaster declaration in order to receive additional help that will aid in alleviating the suffering of the citizenry during the coronavirus outbreak that is sweeping the country. Gov. Chris Sununu and the state of New Hampshire are currently set to receive $1.25 billion from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act that was passed into law by Congress last week. Many residents have suffered massive economic stress due to losing their jobs and are set to receive additional unemployment benefits to help offset their current hardships. Here’s more on this from Washington Examiner: The governor signed the Relief for Workers Affected by Coronavirus Act agreement that will give the state 100 percent funding from the federal government for unemployment benefits. Unemployed New Hampshire residents will receive an additional $600 a week in addition to the minimum benefit amount of $32 to $168 a week. The unemployment benefit period will be extended from 26 weeks to 39 weeks. Gov. Sununu recently released a statement saying, “We are making every effort to provide assistance to families who are out of work during this time so that they can focus on what is most important – caring for their families and protecting their health by staying home.” New Hampshire will also be extending business tax collections and interests and dividend payments all the way to June 15. This particular measure is going to impact roughly 98 percent of small businesses and interest and dividend taxpayers. The “stay at home” order the governor issued last week has been made effective until May 4 to help contain the spread of the illness, as well as continuing to keep kids out of school. The state has suspended all standardized testing as of Monday. “While…
