This fad originated in Arizona, where a group of anonymous 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.
The ones who have taken up this fad claim that by inhaling the smoke coming off of the bed bug pieces, they experience visual and auditory hallucinations , much like what one would experience if they had ingested a similar drug named “acid.”Bed bugs are known in the scientific community to secrete an active hallucinogenic chemical, that produces a feeling once ingested, that one user said resembles “walking on wet concrete.”
This fad’s intriguing beginning is speculated to have occurred when some teens with bed bugs in their homes decided to research the creatures online, when he coincidentally discovered that the insects contain a hallucinogenic chemical and then figured he’d try it.
There are those out there who believe this is a fad, while others claim it’s a fake story created to cause public outrage. But reports from our investigative journalists on the field state that they have personally witnessed children on the streets smoking what they believe to be bed bugs, and that this phenomenon is far from “fake.”
Suffice to say, this is one of the strangest, and most disgusting fads we’ve heard of teens in our country partaking in for the sake of getting high. What drives children to such extremes in order to have a little bit of fun will forever be a mystery to me. Although it is one of the weirdest ways we’ve heard of here at Modern Woman Digest that kids are getting high these days, we know this is not the only strange story out there.
