It’s no secret teenagers sometimes experiment with alcohol, even drugs, but new ways they’re finding to get drunk had jaws dropping in the newsroom.

“Quicker high, they think it’s going to last longer, it’s more intense,” said Dr. Dan Quan from Maricopa Medical Center.

“This is not isolated to any school, any city, any financial area,” Officer Chris Thomas, a school resource officer, said. “This is everywhere.”

When we heard how kids are getting drunk these days, we thought no way.

So we hit up the experts to find out if it’s an urban legend or if it’s legit.

“There’s been documented cases of people going to the hospital with alcohol poisoning just from utilizing it that way,” Thomas said.

Thomas spends his days patrolling the halls of a Valley high school. He’s heard first hand how kids are getting tipsy.

“What we’re hearing about is teenagers utilizing tampons, soak them in vodka first before using them,” Thomas said.

“It gets absorbed directly into the bloodstream. There’s no barrier, there’s no stomach acid to prevent it,” Thomas said.

“I would expect it to absorb pretty quickly as well, because it’s a very vascular structure,” Quan told CBS 5.

  2. every body could have a different amount of alcohol and 90 % people don’t enjoy getting smashed

  3. if you have access to the vodka whats the point in soaking the tampon in it? why not just drink what you’ve got? are they ONLY doing it to get drunk? they must be losers, who cares about them.
