Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is a colourless gas that people inhale, usually via a balloon.  It’s most commonly found in pressurised metal canisters.  The empty canisters are becoming a litter problem, often being found on roadsides, in parks, on open spaces and on private land.  We want to know when you come across these used canisters. We also want to know about shops you think may be selling these illegally.
