Abstract

Drug use has become drug abuse and it has disturbed the populace throughout the country. Of the many drugs being abused at present such as phencyclidine (PGP), heroin, barbiturates, etc., one drug in particular which has lingered with use for more than a decade continues to warrant as much concern as those just mentioned. It is the inhalation of toxic and volatile hydrocarbon vapors from aerosol and spray paint products by primarily the young adults and youth (some as young as six years old) of this country as well as in countries abroad.
