    Q775: Is solvent abuse, such as glue sniffing, illegal?

    Solvent abuse itself is not illegal, as many of the products used during solvent abuse are normal household objects. However, it is illegal for a shopkeeper, or anyone else, to sell any substance that will, or its fumes if inhaled will, cause intoxication to a person under the age of eighteen. Similarly, it is illegal to sell to anyone he believes is acting on behalf of a person under eighteen years of age.
