There’s More to the Huffing Story

I read the Aug. 29 piece “Contractors Deter Teen Refrigerant Huffing,” on Page 1.

While huffing may very well be an issue in many places, The NEWS is failing to tell the other story. We have been using the caps since day one, and it’s because of the refrigerant theft by other contractors on jobsites. If you want I can tell you more.

Also huffing refrigerant does not get a buzz on, it takes away the oxygen and causes them to pass out which is another part of the huffing story that seems to never get attention.
