Teens have discovered a way to smoke bed bugs. Yes, BED BUGS. In their latest effort to find a cheap high that doesn’t require the purchase of any actual drugs.
Apparently, the insects contain a hallucinogenic substance within them. Kids thought up the bright idea of capturing bed bugs, crushing up the bodies, and inserting the pieces into what are referred to in the pot-head community as “bongs” and “hookas.” Once inserted into these devices, the children then light the bongs up and inhale the fumes created by the burning pieces of bed bug bodies.
Unfortunately, not only is the very idea of this cringe-worthy, but the bugs also contain other elements that can cause serious damage to the mind and body, so smoking them can be extremely dangerous. Like you didn’t already know that.
