WOW! Indonesian teenagers now boil used sanitary pads to get high

Indonesian teenagers boil used sanitary pads and drink the resulting liquid in attempts to get high, reports say.

The bizarre new craze has reportedly gripped youths looking for a cheap and legal way to get high.

The Indonesian National Drug Agency (BNN) said the chemicals in the sanitary pads give those who drink the concoction a feeling of “flying” and hallucinations.

Young people are also boiling nappies – some dirty – in the same process, the BNN added.

“The used pads they took from the trash were put in boiling water. After it cooled down, they drank it together,” said Senior Commander Suprinarto, head of the BNN in Central Java.

Police on the island have in recent weeks arrested teenagers said to be high from the “sanitary pad formula”, Strait Times says.

‘The used pads they took from the trash were put in boiling water. After it cooled down, they drank it together,’ Senior Commander Suprinarto, head of the BNN in Central Java, said.

A 14-year-old boy from Belitung Island, east of Sumatra, who admitted to getting ‘drunk’ by boiling unused sanitary pads, described to a local newspaper how he creates the concoction.

A pad is removed from its wrapper and boiled for about an hour, after which the water is cooled.

The sanitary product is squeezed into the container, after which the water is drunk, he told Pos Belitung.

Describing the resulting beverage as ‘bitter’, he told the newspaper he and his friends drink it ‘morning, afternoon and evening’.

The newspaper also reported that nappies had been used to achieve the same ‘legal high’ drink.

The Indonesian Ministry of Health is now investigating what chemical is extracted in the boiling process to cause the ‘high’, Vice reports, quoting a local news website.
