WEST PALM BEACH, Fla -- It looks like candy, sounds like candy, but kids are taking the popular treat “smarties” and treating it like cocaine. No joking around it's the trend that has teens opening up their nostrils to snort the sugary powder. Most teens are catching the ins and outs from videos posted to YouTube that not only shows kids preparing lines, but even going as far as bragging about snorting up while in school. Parents say posts like these may seem fun now but just wait until these fad chasers try to get a job and a future employer looks them up. The question you are probably asking yourself what do medical experts have to say about this notorious nose candy trend? Well what they found may just blow you away. Their biggest concern is the domino effect the powder can have on ones respiratory system. They say too much of this candy up the nose into the lungs could bring on a major asthma attack or other complications. Doctors we spoke with say the sugar rush is the same if you just go the old fashion route and eat the candy instead of inhaling it. http://portsmouth.patch.com/groups/schools/p/portsmouth-warns-parents-of-students-snorting-smarties You never cease to amaze me, America.
