Authorities warn of kids crushing, snorting
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Many kids across the nation are trying a dangerous experiment with a well-known candy.

Authorities say instead of eating Smarties candy, some kids are crushing them up and inhaling them.

Parents in Portsmouth, Rhode Island recently received an email alert, telling them that children were snorting Smarties.

Authorities say the habit could lead to scarring of the nasal cavity and infection.

They're urging parents to talk to their kids and pay careful attention to their hobbies and behavior.
