Teenagers Are Using Baking Products to Get Drunk
Another day, another dangerous trend among teenagers.
We've been living in a time where kids are trying viral challenges, like the Tide Pod and 48 Hour Challenge, and finding new ways to consume alcohol or get their hands on the latest vaping product.
Unfortunately, there's a new under age drinking trend. According to ABC7 NY, students in Georgia are getting drunk off of a baking a product.
It's being reported that students from Grady High School in Atlanta, Georgia are going to their local grocery stores and purchasing bourbon vanilla extract.
Students then will allegedly mix it with their Starbucks drink and go into school "with a buzz." In one instance a student who drank the vanilla extract ended up getting drunk and was taken to the hospital.
ABC7 reports that Vanilla extract is "70 proof, which is a little less than a bottle of vodka" but obviously easier to purchase, by just heading to the closest grocery store.
