Inhalants are volatile substances that produce chemical vapors found in hundreds of products that may induce psychoactive effects when inhaled. Inhalants include:
● Gases: butane, propane, anesthetic gases, such as ether, chloroform, halothane, and nitrous oxide.
● Aerosols: spray paint, hair and deodorant sprays, whipped cream dispensers, fabric protector sprays, and vegetable oil cooking sprays.
● Nitrites: amyl, butyl, and cyclohexyl nitrites and other related organic nitrate compounds commonly known as “poppers” often sold in small brown bottles and labeled as “video head cleaner,” “room odorizer,” “leather cleaner,” or “liquid aroma.”
