D etermined to get around bans on alcohol aerosolizers, young people are snorting vodka, a so-called "Chilly Willy" that experts say could kill. Simply put, the alcohol goes directly to the brain, rather than being absorbed by the liver," said Michael Gimbel, drug addictions educator with Sheppard Pratt Health System in Baltimore City. The phenomenon has spread through videos on the YouTube file-sharing site and Buzzfeed, and according to one BBC report, bartenders in Derby, England, saw patrons get so drunk they passed out almost immediately after snorting. Depending on how persistent the drinker? Christopher Welsh, assistant professor at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and an addictions specialist at the university?
Young adults are now snorting small shots of alcohol, primarily gin. It is the latest fad in the world of intoxication and it is dangerous.
Yes, you can snort alcohol (but you probably won’t want to)
Mike Pooley said. Though snorting alcohol is not illegal if the person consuming the drink is 21 or older, Pooley said the side effects of snorting alcohol are concerning. Pooley said people need to think carefully about how much alcohol they consume and the method they consume it.
Snorting gin or other types of liquor can lead to a much higher chance of alcohol poisoning according to alcohol and addiction specialists. When a person drinks liquor, the stomach and liver dilute the alcohol content, but Valley-based addiction interventionist Carey Davidson said that does not happen when liquor is snorted. He said snorting alcohol can also lead to addiction or dependency much faster than drinking alcohol because the effects are much more rapid and intense.
