Inhalants are legal, household products that are breathed in (called “huffing) to produce a short, mind-altering high that often results in the user huffing multiple times to continue reaching the high. Inhalants can be any product considered a solvent, aerosol, gas or nitrite. Common everyday products that are used as inhalants include paint thinner, glue, lighter fluid, nail polish remover and hairspray. Visit the Inhalants Page to learn more.
