Cart : Horse

Can you say 'ass backwards'?

Speaking to the Senate inquiry into petrol sniffing, (the Central Australian Youth Link Up Service) says there is mounting evidence that young people turn to petrol sniffing because it suppresses the appetite.

Tristan Ray from CAYLUS says some chronic users of petrol have not eaten in days.

He says the appetite-suppressing effect of petrol can be easily seen when sniffers come off the substance.

"One of the really quick responses when you take someone off petrol is they get very hungry, very quickly, and they can eat really large amounts of protein," Mr Ray said.
Or maybe they're hungry because they're not eating on account of being petrol sniffing drug addicts.
