Legal Highs: Kids Smear Burt’s Bees On Their Eyes To Get A Buzz
FASTER than the officials can ban ways of getting high, the kids are finding news ways to get goofed.
They’ve tried smoking bed bugs, and those still able to move and use their hands have moved on to “Beezin”.
‘What’s that?’ you ask.
It’s smearing Burt’s Bees lip balm wax on your eyelids. It gives you a (blushes) buzz.
Fox-25 cites the Beezers, who say that balmy eyes makes them feel sensation akin to being drunk or stoned. Other says it improves their attention spans. Well, so they think.
Dr. Brett Cauthen told the Oklahoma City news station is unsure:
“It’s the peppermint oil that’s causing the burning sensation and I suppose some people think that is kind of funny. The peppermint oil in the lip balm is a very strong irritant and can cause inflammation in the eye redness of the eye swelling.”
You look stoned but aren’t stoned? Wow. This way all the cool drugged out kids will think you’re as hip as they are. And the bonus is that your eyelids never dry out.
What say Burt’s Bees?
Give your lips the nourishing feeling they deserve. This natural lip balm is loaded with coconut and sunflower oils, rich in vitamins and essential fatty acids, to nourish, condition and soften lips. Beeswax seals in hydration. We’ve even added peppermint oil for a refreshing tingle. Take your pick of an old-fashioned yellow tin or a recycled plastic tube. No wonder it is our most popular product.
Hmmm. If you get the munchies, the stuff sounds pretty nutritious.
WARNING: If your child starts licking their own eyeballs, give them a bar of chocolate and some crisps.
