Common household products, such as paint, nail polish remover and sprays (hair spray, cooking spray, air fresheners, etc.) can be inhaled to achieve a "high." Teens often use these inhalants because they’re not illegal, they're easy to abuse and they're cheap. They can also be deadly.
Inhalants can kill suddenly—whether the user is a first-time user or an addict. They can also cause brain damage, memory loss and other problems.

Here are some signs of inhalant abuse:

Video: 2016 Hopkinton Special Olympics VS Police Basketball Game

The Hopkinton Police Department took on Hopkinton Special Olympics for the 10th straight annual basketball game. As they have done in every game, the Special Olympic team defeated the Hopkinton Police Department but a great time was had by all. Special Olympics Program Director, Alec Levine mentioned the special olympics athletes look forward to the game every year; "it's pretty much all they talk about since December rolls around, because they know as the season progresses, at the end of the year is going to be their big game against the Police Department and they're always very concerned about maintaining the winning streak we always seem to have."
