There Is No Doubt That Whipits, Nitrous Oxide, Maims And Kills States Respected Personal Injury Lawyer Deborah Barron
Sacramento, CA (Law Firm Newswire) February 3, 2014 – Whipits kills. Sacramento injury lawyer Deborah Barron is filing a Private Attorney General lawsuit against head shops selling Whipits chargers.
“Imagine waking up in the hospital and not being able to feel the lower half of your body. Imagine being in pain all the time – likely for the rest of your life. Imagine not being able to think straight, hold a job or do much of anything else for yourself without help and having to use a walker. This is what Whipits/Nitrous Oxide does to those who inhale it for a few seconds high,” states highly respected Sacramento injury lawyer, Deborah Barron. Those are the physical effects of huffing nitrous oxide. The other side of the dark and dangerous ‘fun thing to do when bored’ high is the horrendous car crashes as a result of being out of it from inhaling Nozz; car crashes in which there are no guarantees of survivors walking away.
Deborah Barron, who recognizes the dangerous and deadly consequences of this latest craze is suing head shops scattered all over Northern California and makers and distributors of Whipits chargers, in what is referred to as a “Private Attorney General Lawsuit.” She is aiming to get Nozz, death in a can, off the shelves.
“We want to effect societal changes in this area, in the public interest, and get this deadly, misbranded drug off the shelves and under control. People don’t seem to realize that it kills, and I am not exaggerating its effects. The short-lived high it provides can scramble the brain and leave it that way permanently. Thirty seconds of a buzz like high, that may also freeze your throat, can affect the rest of your life, and not in a good way. My clients can certainly tell you that,” Barron adds.
Barron has two clients, Justin Kegley and Jason Starn, standing in for the state government in her private lawsuit. California’s Attorney General, Kamala Harris, refuses to pursue stores selling Nozz and Nozz chargers. However, this has not stopped local Los Angeles law enforcement from cracking down on those selling it illegally, such as smoke and head shops, where it is obvious the product is being sold for the purposes of inhalation. While the cans are clearly labelled “Do not inhale,” this has not stopped such shops from purveying Whipits as a way to get high and making money, completely ignoring the fact they are promoting the illegal use of a legal product. They even obligingly demonstrate how Nozz is used with balloons.
“This lawsuit is intended to send a message to those selling this deadly, misbranded product, and that is: pull the chargers and crackers, as people’s lives are at stake. Stop killing innocent people because you want to make money. We also want everyone to know just how deadly this practice is,” Barron points out. “If you have been a victim of Nozz, talk to me.”

But should retail stores carry them as well? The California Supreme Court, in hearing arguments in a wrongful […]
