21-year-old dies after inhaling computer duster, friends just watch

Description: One Mid-Missouri woman says her 21-year-old son is dead after inhaling a compressed air duster can.

Jerrad “J.B.” Bassett died in a hospital just north of St. Louis this past June.

His mother, who lives in Howard County, says the autopsy report came back and the cause of death was a chemical found in air duster cans. She says her son died within hours of being taken to the emergency room.

The effects of “huffing” can be severe. The Inhalant Abuse Prevention Coalition says inhaled chemicals are absorbed through the lungs into the bloodstream and travel to the brain and other organs. It says effects on the body happen in just minutes. Those can include dizziness, headaches, pain, spasms, loss of control, hallucinations and more.

So this is what sudden death by inhalants looks like.. I was heavily addicted to them for the last 4 years and I thought all this "sudden death" thing was a myth. I've been 1 month clean now and I'm glad I have :sad:

It's a known side effect of computer duster that you just die instantly? That's crazy not even opiates kill you that fast

He died hours after going to ER but it does render a person unconscious shockingly fast in this video

You don't die THAT quickly. But you do 'shutdown' instantly. Unconscious, barely any brain activity, etc. So you're still 'alive', in the sense that your heart and brain haven't stopped fully working.

I spent about a year heavily addicted to airduster. It is actually no fucking joke. I was only 18, couldn't figure out how to escape my living situation, and airduster was accessible and cheap.

One day I had a close call, a VERY close call, and realized I either quit right FUCKING now or it was going to kill me.

I stopped that day.

Haven't touched a can in 12 years.

Never again.

I'm glad I stopped when I did. After a while the high gets painful and lasts longer, but takes you out faster and without much of the good feeling.

That shit is scary, I'm glad to see people learning from this video and survivors mistakes.

It's like washing your brain in warm water. Sound gets wobbly and you get this static feeling in your muscles that makes you feel like relaxing beyond anything you've ever been able to do before.

Then you wake up, face down, and drooling about 2-5 min later depending on how direct and large your last hit was.

Can't forget the bitterant that taste like microwaved rubber bands and perfume. It absorbs into your fingers and lips. Everything taste fucking terrible for a day. Along with the inevitable physical altercation because some j o o is bogarting a frosted over can. It's an acquired lifestyle. Fun doee :orly:

honestly id just go for DXM if you want a cheap, legal high. the 100-count robocough r30s are like 25 bucks on amazon, and its safer/better in every way.

either that or you could try to buy some research chemicals online, but thats a legal grey area, so go at your own risk.

I've herd that before what exactly is serotonin syndrome and what does it feel like and what other interactions can cause it I'm on Zoloft and welbutrin so I can't do dam anymore but I used to be heavily addicted to Benadryl and idk if I can hop back on it, Trina see the hat man again yk I miss that old fella

i had serotonin syndrome from like 1500mg zoloft. your heart rate goes past 100 and you shake like you have parkinsons, it doesn't usually happen but with zoloft specifically i got crazy real hallucinations. way more vivid than 900mg benadryl. just don't take too much zoloft or taper off of it before you do any drugs if you're desperate. i got permanent visual snow from it and then i fucked it up more with bennys and now im on evil tard lsd forever

This is pretty helpful. Whats the come down like? Does it raide blood pressure or go good with anything else?

Jump in the discussion.

No email address required.

  1. the comedown is kind of like a warm, tingly hangover. it feels good, but you'll be pretty lethargic for the next day and the time dilation from the trip can carry over for a while and make the day seem longer. its not the kind of thing you should take a day before important things like school or work.

  2. yeah, in high enough doses it raises blood pressure, so watch out for that.

  3. i haven't tried it with anything else, but general rule of thumb is to not combine it with any stimulants, depressants or SSRIs.

I actually :marseyakshually: got some from a friend. I had no idea how much to take. The 1st time :marseywait: gave me a mild stimulant sensation but everything after that was crap. I heard :marseyjacksparrow: it can also sedate you. Apparently it’s highly addictive too. Honestly, I was too scared :marseybackingintobush: to try a super high :marseyrick: dose. It’s not a barbiturate or a benzo. It actually :marseyakshually: closely resembles gabapentin or pregabalin.

Is that a barbiturate?

No, I think of it as weird Russian space Xanax, it works kinda like a benzo.

It’s great if you can use it responsibly but if you have an addictive personality you’d better skip this one, because the withdrawal can kill you like alcohol and benzos do and tolerance builds fast, you don’t want to end up like guy above

Been a daily addict for maybe 5 years now, I can relate painfully. Only way I even feel it is if I take Bupropion and Diphenhydramine, smoke weed and maybe drink some alcohol.

There's a crazy shortage and Robocough is super overpriced where I live outside of the US.

How much ml for good high

Jump in the discussion.

No email address required.

I'd go the illegal route and take XTC for around 5 euros it is here. Never done it though because there is also bad pills out there that could kill you but at this point I think it is more popular here than alcohol on some parties. Cheap, relatively safe if you know a good dealer you can trust and where I live it is really easy to get. Still what the youth use most here is N2O and even though that is relatively safe they say there is a chance you get an acute B12 deficiency that can fuck up your whole nervous system and even make you paralysed for life but it is legal as of now so it's the choice of most youth here.

Get help. Drug addiction is a progressive disease. That means, if left untreated, you will 100% die. No if's and's or but's about it.

However, if you continue to be a stupid degenerate waste of societal resources, make sure you're filming yourself, or someone is filming you, so we can watch it here when you do inevitably die.

So this is what I don't understand coming from a 3rd world country:

In most place in the world, people work long shifts just to get by and they have very little excess time or money outside of work to do anything fun. Activities like skiing or camping or traveling come at such a high relative cost that it's not something you can afford to get into.

In US, most people, even the "poor" people, has the excess time and money to do most of the whatever activities they want, yet they choose to spend their time huffing $3 air duster can.

But then again, I guess junkies aren't exclusive to the US. It's just for poor countries you will get weeded out (🤣) by natural selection because you don't have the money to sustain your hobby.

It's all relative

These kids are retards who have nothing better to do than to sit on their asses and get high

While you have to work for a living and/or comfort, these kids have it granted to them

They don't "work" because they don't have to, and that leads to boredom, then boredom leads to exploration of options and that exploration could very easily lead to drug use if you're not careful

That's why these people do it

Because it's a fun and easy time, and in this case, also affordable

Regardless of how much money you have, some people just have really fucked up lives and need an escape. For some it's games or a sport, for others its this. It's unfortunate but it's the reality of things. Also, alot of the u.s is poor, like paycheck to paycheck poor so activities like skiing or vacationing aren't super realistic unless you come from a family of wealth. If you ever decide to migrate from your country, DONT come to the u.s. it's terrible here. Go to Sweden or something

Computer duster is an NMDA receptor antagonist, typically in the class of halogenated alkanes or straight alkanes (so a dissociative). So basically an easily liquifiable gas that doesn’t contain any moisture. It’s a cheap high with a legitimate industrial/consumer use. Just like butane as a lighter refill.
