The use of nitrous oxide as a recreational drug at “laughing gas parties”, primarily arranged for the British upper class, became an immediate success beginning in 1799. While the effects of the gas generally make the user appear stuporous, dreamy and sedated, some people also “get the giggles” in a state of euphoria, and frequently, erupt in laughter.
It seems like the drug has made a come-back of sorts in the UK, where it’s quite easy to get hold of. According to the Telegraph; “Home Office statistics showed more than 350,000 people aged 16 to 24 admitted using the gas in the last year, making it the second most popular drug among the age group after cannabis.”
Either way… these dudes below decided to give it a go and film their reactions while on the drug. They’re damn hilarious… it gets good around the 0:55 mark.
