Beezin

It's called "beezin". It involves applying Burt's Bees lip balm to your eyelids. Media reports (such as here and here) are hyping it as a worrying new trend among teens. Supposedly it enhances the experience of being drunk or high. But doctors warn that it could also cause eye inflammation.

Could this possibly be real? It sounds as stupid as that fake news report that was circulating recently about teens smoking bed bugs to get high.

The reason.com blog is skeptical about the entire thing, but notes that even if kids really are "beezin," the media panic seems unfounded. Do we really need to be worried about kids potentially getting puffy eyes?
