Ask Erowid : ID 1752 : Can I get high on Borax?
‘If a label says “Not For Drug Use” that means its not for drug use, not “Party Time!” If a label says “May Cause Drowsiness” that generally means it will make you tired, not high. If a label says “Poison!” that generally means it can and/or will kill you. You are not going to make some amazing new drug discovery in your medicine cabinet, your kitchen spice rack, or your household cleaning supplies. No, you can not get high from Borax.’
As a substitute teacher, I had to explain to some kids that they couldn’t make LSD by mixing bleach and rat poison. Teaching kids about drugs doesn’t make them want to do drugs. They want to do drugs for many other reasons already.
