Before you read this, it's important to note that just because the media is reporting on a new trend, it doesn't necessarily mean your kids are doing it.  But it's good to stay informed, just to be on the safe side.

Apparently some kids are now smoking coffee.

There are basically, two different ways they're coffee smoking.  One is rolling up the coffee grounds in rolling papers and smoking them . . . the other is putting a coffee bean into a pipe and lighting it and smoking it like crack or meth.

Smoking coffee can cause all sorts of problems because it's a massive RUSH of caffeine into the body.  Kids who smoke coffee can have trouble breathing, rapid heartbeats, hallucinations, and more.

LIke any new trend the media picks up on, it's doubtful your kids are doing this.  But if you catch your kid twitching and think he might be smoking coffee, it's worth intervening.
