Doctors say inhaling sugar could go down the wrong tube, or get stuck in your nose, leading to an infection.

Worse, the sugar grain could irritate lung tissue, leading to a blood clot, which could break off and get lodged in the brain, causing a fatal stroke.

According to Volusia County School spokeswoman Nancy Wait, an 11-year-old boy found a round object in a plastic bag that looked similar to a Smarties candy piece. The boy stomped on the object, creating a powder and inhaled it, according to Wait, who added that six other fourth-grade students then did the same thing.

/You know, it's bad enough that someone would be brain dead enough to snort something they found on the ground, with no idea what it is, but then to find SIX MORE that thought "hey..this is a good idea" is mind boggling. Is this school near a mercury factory? The level of stupid is amazing.

"A student was brought to the office by a teacher and there was a bag, deputies and hazmat crews determined it was sugar ,"


So it was candy?

"It's safe, Sophie, I just snorted some birth control pills. If you suck me off first they'll be in you too and you won't get pregnant when we do it."

Sadly the kids won't be smart enough to think of that line.

So if you inhale sugar and it accidentally goes down the wrong tube (ie, you swallow it instead) it could lead to an infection?

I'm betting the kids knew exactly what it was and tried to tell the teachers multiple times, but the school thought it would be more "prudent" to go all Madagascar with the situation.

I'm betting the smarties came from one of the six kids. But no one in the group wants to be the narc, so they all just give the goto answers.
1. "They're not mine."
2. "They were just there on the ground."
You don't even need to have the snorters coordinate their answers to get the same responses for every one of them.

I think the same thing about all the warnings and safety measures against kids putting things in their mouths and swallowing them.
When I was a kid, I never stuck anything in my mouth except food.
My mother tells the story of when I was in the sandbox with a neighborhood kid and he started eating sand.  What the hell?

Ahhhhh, yes this makes more sense now.  This Canuck was trying to figure how the heck they crushed Smarties (which up here are candy-coated chocolate, similar to chocolate M&Ms) into something snortable.  Crushing chocolate usually just ends up with a sticky mess.  But crushing Rockets would get you the equivalent of icing sugar - a gateway to cocaine, I suppose.

Doctors say that huh? Did you see any diplomas or certificates? The reason I ask is it just sounds a lot like medical advice a thirteen-year-old would write in a blog about "Things not to do with Powdered Skittles" or "How Crushed Lemonheads Are More Dangerous Than Peeps".

Not obscure, but like some others it outs you as a fellow Canadian. In the states 'Smarties' are what we call Rockets.

Canada. A Utopia of delicious chip flavours our U.S. American Farkers don't get. Sugar in our pop (or soda as you have it) instead of HFCS and chocolate that doesn't taste like waxy ass. I love you America, but your snack food is sometimes rather nasty.
