DEA Classifies Scented Markers as “Gateway Drug”

Communities across the country are on high alert after the Drug Enforcement Agency officially classified scented markers as a gateway drug. The DEA warns parents to be vigilant and look out for signs of maker abuse, including slurred speech, lack of coordination, and frequent unprovoked nose bleeds. 

According to a recent Quinnipiac University poll analysis, eighteen percent of elementary schoolers say they sniff up to three packs a week and sixty-eight percent say they sniff one pack a week, while two-thirds of all elementary schoolers have tried sniffing “at least once.” However, when asked to describe their relationship with sniffing, a majority of respondents, aged 7-11, said they would consider themselves “Social Sniffers” — only sniffing when at a sleepover after they’ve had a few Capri Suns.

DEA officials say they were compelled to act after the recent surge in popularity of a dangerous TikTok challenge known as “snorkeling” — where someone is held upside down by their ankles with a marker stuffed in each nostril. Emergency room visits have gone up by an average of 17% year over year since 2019.   

While some community advocates say a strict “no sniff” policy should be enforced at schools, others believe schools should provide rooms for “safe sniffing” where at least it is supervised under the care of medical professionals. "It's all fun and games until someone starts huffing a permanent marker," said concerned parent, Margaret Johnson. “You say it’s fine and they’re just experimenting, but I was at the park with my son the other day and a five-year-old came out from underneath the slide saying she’d let me ‘got my nose’ for a scratch-and-sniff. Is that the world we want to live in?” 

Not all agree with Mrs. Johnson’s sentiment, as a counter-movement, “See No Evil Smell No Evil,” argues that scented markers are a childhood staple and warns against the dangers of an overly sanitized upbringing.
