Apparently, teens are now targeting the most unwanted Halloween candy of your childhood — Smarties — and are snorting them to get high. Or, at least, they're trying to, since it seems nothing actually happens when they crush it up and snort it into their noses. The fad isn't really new, but a warning from a middle school in Maine now notes that kids can develop "nasal maggots" if the colorful candy gets lodged into the nose cavities.

Let's take a look at some other questionable and dangerous teen drug trends from recent years.
