There are 5 lb tanks that fit in a backpack and there are silencers. Also, the only danger that comes from nitrous, when used responsibly (sitting down in a safe environment), is that it depletes vitamin b12 from the system. B12 protects nerve endings and is stored in the spine. When depleted totally, it can cause nerve damage. Therefore, if you decide to use nitrous, make sure you eat meat, or take a supplement with b12, and sit down. Also, be sure not to use masks, or anything that prevents you from breathing oxygen, should you accidentally over do it.
Nitrous can provide revelatory insights and can enhance the trip when combined with other psychedelics. If you don't like it, don't do it, but don't judge others who like to partake, as there are plenty of people who can have alcoholic drinks, use cocaine, enjoy a bowl of opium, etc, etc, and do so responsibly. Experience makes people wiser, usually, and limiting your experiences just limits your potential for understanding other points of view. There are positive and negatives with EVERYTHING in life!
Seems there are lots of judgmental, close minded heads nowadays.
i dont think anyone wants to judge nitrous users, i know i dont, as i am a nitrous user. i have some whippets that i filter to remove oils after the show, and usually take one or two in with me and if the scene is wild enough i will inhale them. doing em after the show in the parking lot seems simple minded, sketchy, boring, and is contributing to a negative force in the lot.
people should do all the gas they want, JUST DONT BUY IT FROM THESE GHETTO ASSHOLE NITROUS FUCKS that obviously are not heads, are not fans, and serve simply to distribute drugs that dont increase the quality of the vibe at all. LSD, MDMA, etc, make people act weird, and act out, and makes the overall vibe of a show much more weird and fun. gas just makes people go into their own little world. 5 a balloon or 2 for 20 is money that could have been spent on food or souvenirs, that way money goes into the pockets of deadheads, not violent gangster drug dealers capitalizing upon us.
STOP buying from these fucks! get some whippets(blue whip-it brand one of the only fit for inhalation), a cracker and balloon. cheaper than the nitrous fucks and their "fatties", plus you can take the nitrous into the show with you if patdowns are minimal or you conceal it well.
