2. Vodka Tampons
We’re accustomed to hearing about newly-discovered methods people use to get high, so it probably wasn’t too hard for most people to believe that young people had found a new way to get drunk quickly by inserting tampons soaked in vodka or other hard liquor in their bodily cavities. The practice was said to benefit the partakers by allowing them to avoid the smell of alcohol on their breath, and eliminating the chance of getting sick and vomiting from drinking. The idea that someone can get drunk faster this way is completely unfounded, and there was nothing to suggest that there was any significant number of people trying it.
