Drug of choice?!

As I was doing routine chart checks last month, I came across this notation in the initial assessment of a new client:

"Substance abuse: Client says he smokes marijuana and snorts Smarties."

I wasn't sure if this was a new name for a street drug, so I asked the therapist who'd done the assessment to clarify.

"No, he snorts crushed Smarties candy. He even did a line in my office."


  1. That, I will say, is a new one on me. Must make sneezing unique.


  2. My brother and I tried snorting crushed Smarties once in junior high. Being stupid teenagers, we were hoping for some sort of "rush," but all it did was burn like hell and give us runny noses for the rest of the week.
