“Beezing” Trend Among Teens-Truth!

Summary of eRumor:

Reports that teens are applying Burt’s Bees lip balm to their eyelids to get high have exploded on the Internet. The trend is called “Beezing” and experts are warning of related safety and health risks.

The Truth:

This is true, according to a December 6, 2013, article by a Fox News affiliate in New York. 

Fox News talked to Dr. Robert Cykiert, who told them, “It’s a foolish thing to do, but college kids sometimes do strange things.” Cykiert warned that the lip balm contained “all kinds of ingredients that could potentially get in the eye and cause some burning and irritation.”

Word of the beezing trend may not have traveled to all parts of the nation, as some report have indicated. A Fox reporter went to Hunters College in New York City to interview students about this latest method of getting high. Students told the reporter that they had not heard of beezing.
