  • I agree. Until we address the issues of why kids or adults are abusing anything, no law or ordinance that punishes them is going to make a difference. We are a society of detached children and broken adults. We have to find a way to heal those who choose to check out of their reality in the hopes of finding peace. It has to start one by one, person to person. If you know someone who is abusing, speak up, find help, and stay vigilant til they do.

  • I agree with everything your saying. But if there is no law against it the officers hands are tied. If a parent calls the police in to help with a child "huffing" would they be able to arrest this person. I do see how they would consider seeking a huffing law as a tool.

  • If a parent finds out his or her child has been huffing, the parent should probably take the child to the emergency room if the child is still experiencing the effects.....otherwise, take them to a substance abuse counselor the next day.

    What would a parent do if a child was cutting himself/herself? Call the police? Should that person be arrested?

    I DO think that the police can help people without arresting them. And it should be a prohibition for one to operate a motor vehicle while under the effects of huffing, etc..
