Kids are now smoking BED BUGS to get high.

In their latest effort to find a cheap high that doesn’t require the purchase of any actual drugs, teens have discovered a way to smoke bed bugs. Yes, BED BUGS. The things that normal people hate even thinking about. The little critters that plague hotels and give guests nasty rashes. Yes, those very same bed bugs.

Apparently, the insects contain a hallucinogenic substance within them, except it’s impossible to isolate it, so the bugs have to be caught, killed and crushed into a powder, which is then either smoked or, perhaps even worse and more disgusting, injected. How did they even think of this?!

Unfortunately, not only is the very idea of this cringe-worthy, but the bugs also contain other elements that can cause serious damage to the mind and body, so smoking them can be extremely dangerous. Like you didn’t already know that.

Check out ABC 15 Arizona’s news report below to find out more about this terrifying trend:

In case most people didn’t realize by now, this story was a hoax. We reported it when we heard about it, and I assure you we were just as shocked as you. Last night we found out it was a hoax through this article.

However, this story was just a hoax, an April Fool’s Day prank based on an altered version of a real KNXV-TV report from several months earlier on the dangers of “dabbing” (i.e., inhaling butane-extracted hash oil, also known as BHO):

We wanted to just make a statement because after reading the comments, people seemed generally alarmed by at. The truth is, there might actually be someone who reads this and decides it’s a good idea to smoke bed bugs. As ridiculous as that may sound, we don’t want to contribute to that. We left the story up because people seem to enjoy laughing about it. We just wanted to come forth and make a claim on the event.

Remember… stay away from gateway bugs.

This video is fake. If you google kids smoking bed bugs you will find that the individual that was interviews is actually talking about hash oil which kids are using to get hight. It's called dabbing among other things.

HoV - April 10, 2014.

Oh no, the kids on the bed bug!!! Lordy lordy, what will us poor christian parents do? Praise Jesus!

This is a hoax. If you don't want to lose credibility I would advise you to take five minutes to do some research and remove this article.

Hello! You should fact check before you post things, this story is a hoax! They stole footage from this real news story and tricked you! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gFgvCi-JGw

ITS A FAKE PEOPLE!! GOOGLE IT!!

Spades - April 11, 2014.

Is this satire? Someone tell me this is satire. This is a satire site, right? TELL ME IT'S SATIRE PLEASE.

David - April 11, 2014.

wow, 3 min ago I didn't know this existed. Thanks for telling me how to make a new drug to get high with, great responsible reporting.

Alan Batterman - April 11, 2014.

The advantage is that it would be impossible to pass a law making possession of bedbugs illegal. Most people who have bedbugs did not get them deliberately and don't want them.

Richard - April 11, 2014.

So disgusting its an embarrassment.OMG!

Ernie - April 11, 2014.

At least we'll have cleaner beds when we check into hotels now. Darwin...

Lucille Bihler - April 11, 2014.

I like keeping up on the causes and effects of all these "getting high" ordeals because I have so many young and young adult grand children. Concerned grandma

Chris - April 11, 2014.

Try some research before writing articles like these. This information comes from an april fool's day joke that people are taking seriously.

FoxNewsisRealNews - April 11, 2014.

This is Satire what they show in the video is Dabs or Wax or BTO...aka JUST WEED in a different form Its weed that has been through an extraction process to purify the THC. The wax is what you end up with. some idiot saw it and thought it was bedbugs. one last thing .BEDBUGS ARE NOT THAT BIG.

Jennifer Addison - April 11, 2014.

So nasty why why why?

John - April 11, 2014.

Hey David if you want to get high just get high. Dont try and blame your problems on others. If finding out bed bugs could maybe get you high is the straw that broke the camels back then you need to rethink life.

sarah - April 11, 2014.

clearly you didn't check your sources. this was an april fools day joke that the station did. they redid a story about dabbing but changed it to bed bugs. other news stations picked up the story (obviously without fact checking) and began reporting on it. this is the perfect example of why we should not trust the media and news stations.

Jerry Baker - April 11, 2014.

Sweet, another post with no informational accuracy that just makes naive old people worried about the world they live in.

Mister Zizzy - April 11, 2014.

Jeremy - April 11, 2014.

Marlenan - April 11, 2014.

MzMari - April 11, 2014.

@David: They're giving you the info to educate you on the DANGERS of doing this. If all you get from this is "another way to get high" you're an idiot!!

dan - April 11, 2014.

For those of you who are thinking ya..... I want to smoke or shoot some bed bug( even saying it makes me shiver) "They are able to be infected by at least 28 human pathogens" and the fact you are smoking or shooting someones blood, yes this is what they eat... so lets kinda sum it up smoke a bug with 28 pathogens, human blood, feces, I just dont understand.. how, under what circumstance does something like this happen...

Bryan - April 11, 2014.

To me that looks like a bunch of kids smoking concentrate (thc) and the gov. trying to fool their parents into thinking that they are smoking something a lot worse.

stacy - April 11, 2014.

thankfully this has been reported as an april fools day haox!!!!

Bradley Bolton - April 11, 2014.

I've been using bed bugs daily for the last few years. Please don't start this habit. I can't go more than two hours without starting to go through withdrawls. It never made me hallucinate, just feel really really good. It was better than heroin and I even got off heroin because I didn't have any money for the habit and the bed bugs were common. I used to break into hotels to get my fix but another bed bug addict suggested I just buy a bunch of sheets and bedding and transport a few bugs there. So now I have a whole stash colony that I get high from. I am shooting them up lately cuz it gets me higher but I first started smoking it. Kind of like my heroin habit went. Anyway, please everyone who reads this--Don't use Bed Bugs!

lynn - April 11, 2014.

This was an April fool's day hoax.

RBC - April 11, 2014.

What I would like to know is why they used a clip from a video of how to make/use cannabis as medicine.

Todd - April 11, 2014.

It's a hoax: http://www.snopes.com/horrors/parental/bedbugs.asp

thinker smurfs - April 11, 2014.

Who would even want to smoke blood infested creatures ewww think u the people who are smoking these ???? Do you know these bed bugs are filled with blood yes the blood of other people the endless possibilities of what diseases you could end up with ???

Konstantyne Payne - April 11, 2014.

this is such bullshit the product the kids are smoking is a form of thc called shatter and som were wax dabs.

Meg - April 11, 2014.

Wouldn't this expose you to hiv and thimgs like that?

tanya - April 11, 2014.

So nasty...they will do anything for a buzz..but bed bugs really it just makes my skin crawl just thinking about it..would not be worth it to me..!!!

luke - April 11, 2014.

THIS IS FALSE. FAKE. NOT REAL. DON'T BELIEVE IT. FALSE FOOTAGE. JUST WELL DONE SATIRE. FAKE. DON'T BUY INTO IT. THE FOOTAGE THEY WERE SHOWING WAS NOT OF ANYONE SMOKING BED BUGS BUT SIMPLY CANNABIS CONCENTRATES. FALSE INFORMATION.

M'kali-Hashiki - April 11, 2014.

This is false & based on an April Fool's report http://www.snopes.com/horrors/parental/bedbugs.asp

Ryan - April 11, 2014.

Wow, you are all ridiculous. This article itself says it's a hoax if you read the entire thing... Which most of you didn't. Derp

Lucas - April 11, 2014.

I can't wait to try this!

joe - April 11, 2014.

now you can hire stoners to get rid of your bedbugs. their payment will be they get to keep what they find. bedbug problem solved

chris - April 12, 2014.

I find that snorting the bed bugs is the best way to do it. I also like to crush up ticks and stinkbugs and smoke them. I get quite a euphoric feeling from the combination of the three.

Shane - April 12, 2014.

This may clear up some confusion about both the hoax video and the source video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RlYRMaiaOeo

jackson - April 12, 2014.

Hahaha this is great seeing all the insanely stupid people who actually believe this even before they admitted it was a hoax omg do people even have the ability to think at all anymore I'm actually getting mad reading peoples comments on here. Stop.. kill yourselves.

yeahright - April 12, 2014.

Those are dabs and the guy that shows up first is talking about dabs. all the videos of the smoking is bho.

dan - April 12, 2014.

What I find even more amusing than people who thought this was real are the individuals who post its a hoax and a link right after 5 other people already posted it. So by the way if the 30 other people didnt make it clear its a hoax, and if you missed this I'm sure someone after me who will try to look like they are super intelligent will also tell us it's a hoax. It's done and over now people we know it's a hoax move along.

Achmed Goldblatt - April 12, 2014.

I'm told the smoke has a bit of a bite to it.

Che - April 12, 2014.

Well, it may have been a hoax before, but all the dopers checked their mattress after the first paragraph!! -_- I wonder how many people smoked some bed bugs after reading this article

All I can say about kids today is look at idiocracy. The movie and that is almost the future I can see for our children. It is so very so even though this is not real what are children's minds are like today and It scares me to think if children seen this post if they actually went out trying bedbugs as a new stupid drug.
