Number for laughing gas hotline appears on roundabout lamppost near Chislehurst and Petts Wood

News Shopper: Laughing gas hot line Laughing gas hot line

A 'laughing gas hotline' has been made available to the borough's residents. 

The number has been posted on a lamppost at the roundabout where the A208 meets Leesons Hill, between Chislehurst and Petts Wood.

The sign was spotted by a News Shopper reporter today (May 13) although calls are currently being met with an answerphone message. 

Laughing gas, also known as nitrous oxide, hippie crack, and chargers, is used medically, in catering, and recreationally.

Drugs website talktofrank.com says it causes a euphoric effect and lists a number of health risks when inhaling it.

The discarded little silver canisters have started to appear all over the borough, as today's Yoof throw them to the ground instead of keeping them until they pass a suitable rubbish bin.

Ahh - you have solved the mystery for me. I had wondered what these canisters were. I thought they were for blowing up bike tires (you can get CO2 ones for that purpose) but realised there were way to many.

PS. Should NS be displaying the number, as supplying NO for inhalation without a doctor/dentist is illegal. (yes I'm sure they state not for consumption etc.. But we all know what it means).
