Gay Twitter Responds To FDA Warning On Poppers

The Food and Drug Administration recently issued warnings about the use of alkl nitrate inhalants (aka poppers) noting there’s been an increase of hospitalizations and even death associated with their use.

“These products are marketed as nail polish removers but are being ingested or inhaled for recreational use,” the statement reads.

“’Poppers’ are sold online or at adult novelty stores and packaged in small bottles, ranging from 10 to 40 mL. They appear similar to energy shots, with brand names including Jungle Juice, Extreme Formula, HardWare, Quick Silver and Super RUSH.”

How or why the FDA is suddenly aware of poppers that the gay community has used since the 1960s is a question many folks in the Twtterverse had, in addition to having quite the laugh about the warning itself.
