It is illegal for New Yorkers under age 21 to purchase a can of whipped cream, according to recently-passed state law.

The law, which went into effect in November 2021, is meant to prevent teenagers from using canned whipped cream to inhale nitrous oxide, otherwise known as "whippets."

"Inhalants are invisible, volatile substances found in common household products that produce chemical vapors that are inhaled to induce psychoactive or mind-altering effects," according to a US Drug Enforcement Administration factsheet.

Approximately 1 in 5 young people have used inhalants like whippits by the time they reach eighth grade, the DEA said. Abusing inhalants can "cause damage to the parts of the brain that control thinking, moving, vision, and hearing."

New York State Sen. Joseph Addabbo of Queens said he sponsored the New York law after receiving complaints of empty canisters littering the streets.

"The need to limit the access and sale of whippits first became apparent after receiving constituent complaints about empty canisters on neighborhood streets. Used whippits piling up in our communities are not only an eye sore, but also indicative of a significant nitrous oxide abuse problem," Addabbo said in an October 2021 statement.

"Nitrous oxide is a legal chemical for legitimate professional use but when used improperly, it can be extremely lethal," Addabbo added. "Sadly, young people buy and inhale this gas to get 'high' because they mistakenly believe it is a 'safe' substance. This law will eliminate easy access to this dangerous substance for our youth."

This is a real law and not satire?  No wonder liberals can't tell the difference.

Sounds to me like the manufacturers need to use a different gas for the propellant.  Of course, the propellant is driving sales so they won't unless forced to.

Seems typical to me. People complain and demand something be done, then when something is done complain about the response. 

It is the same as canned air from office depot or spray paint.

You are allowed to vote at 18 but must wait until 21 to buy whipped cream, there is something really fouled up with what is important!

And many liberals want to reduce the voting age to 16.

Rest easy folks…your children and your neighbors children and the children of those you don’t even know in most places can still purchase all the weapons and ammo they want.

If you are good enough to vote then you should be good enough for all things.   Voting= Alcohol, Guns, Cigarettes, Marijuana, Whipped Cream,   Age should be same for all and maybe should be raised for all.

They should either lower them to 18 or change the legal age of adulthood to 21. If you're 18 and now an adult and legally responsible for your actions and can be sent to war, you should be allowed to make adult decisions regarding what you put in your body. If society doesn't think 18 is old enough to be responsible, then we need to change the age someone becomes legally responsible for their actions to 21.

Why the stickiness of those numbers? What is the magical difference between 18 and 21? Why not 19? Why not 20? 

The choice of age all seems so arbitrary.

I agree. Perhaps instead of an age it would be some sort of test or exam you have to pass to be considered an adult. I know plenty of people who still have their 35 year old's living at home that are incapable of taking care of themselves, and I've known some 16 year old's that I would consider responsible enough to make decisions for themselves.

[gasp] means testing? All for it. Across the board.

Yep, not only that.    You can die for your country at 18 but you can’t legally buy a beer in a bar.    FUBAR, completely FUBAR.

So much for "pursuit of happiness."

Abusing inhalants can "cause damage to the parts of the brain that control thinking, moving, vision, and hearing."

"Inhalants" generally, sure. But nitrous oxide, specifically? Permanently? Is this really a big problem? How many people have done actual, permanent damage with nitrous oxide? So much so, that we need a law restricting it?

There's a reason your local dentist can administer nitrous and he doesn't have to be an anesthesiologist or even a pharmacist. It's incredibly safe stuff. The main danger with inhaling nitrous is not the nitrous itself, but rather, depriving your brain of oxygen. But there are lots of ways to do that. Just ask David Carradine.

I think most moms would think you're throwing some sort of sex party if you asked them that...

Do they waste all the whipped cream?  If they eat it, it will contribute to the fattening of America, as if there isn't already enough obesity there.

The way to do it is to get the N2O canisters they use to charge whipped cream dispensers (yes, I was young once). From there, they make various inhaling devices, or others for inflating balloons. There are various methods of getting the gas into your system. I can't imagine trying to do this with a can of ReddiWip.

Easy - don’t shake it, leave the can upright, then lightly push the nozzle to the side.  I knew people who would do it in the grocery store when nobody was looking.  I never did it because I can’t imagine answering the question “what are you in for?”, posed by some toothless thug in a jail cell.

Used to run nitrous in my hotrods and was known to huff it a bit when the tank was too empty to run the engine effectively. 

The powers that be then made a law that all nitrous used in auto racing had to contain certain chemicals that made it taste nasty (denatured). 

After blowing up a few engines due to NOS was tired of buying/using it anyway.
