This device which is available to buy online for $35 can be a disaster in the hands of inexperienced teens. Vaportini resembles a traditional vaporizer, as it heats and releases intoxicating vapors that can be inhaled with a straw. This can cause alarming levels of intoxication, as alcohol gets directly ingested in the bloodstream through the lungs. It is now legal to buy this product and is available across the U.S.

'There could be inexperienced people at parties under peer pressure who may find themselves using this method of alcohol consumption. It might not be possible to self-regulate their consumption and teenagers just like adults can be drunk drivers too.'

Usually when we drink alcohol, it is absorbed 10% through the stomach and 8% in the small intestine. With Vaportini, alcohol is directly transferred from the lungs to the bloodstream - increasing the levels of intoxication. The abuse potential is very high with this device.
