I think it's nitrous oxide for sniffing. We get piles of them in the gutter after Finsbury Park events.
Otherwise known as "laughing gas"
You certainly don't sniff it!
“ Hippy Crack”, they’re clattered everywhere,usually spent
Nitrous oxide, a.k.a Nos.
Thanks all. I assuemd it was drugs, but wasn't quite sure which.
These things are the latest blight on the neighbourhood. They sit alongside discarded balloons. They are all over the park and because they are shiny and metal they are enticing for small kids to pick up.
Likely to be NOx, yeah, but could also just be CO2 canisters used by cyclists and motorcyclists to quickly inflate a flat tyre. It's a 6gram dose of some sort of gas though, that's for sure.
They’re sold as catering supplies - gas for cream whippers. But, yes, often consumed without the cream...
Yes there are piles of them all over the place, esp after a festival. I guess they must be easy to buy esp at the festivals. Think it’s still legal
Also used to carbonate tap water with one of these, kids (or not) get high on it. Surprised you've not yet come across one of the multiple random dumps scattered around London (mainly north), piles of it, just dumped in the open. Always wondered if it was some sort of a street code hiding a glorified meaning amongst the silly peers. Or just simpletons littering with a smile on their brain-poor face.
