Amyl Nitrate Bottles, expired HIV Medication and Leather Frame

Amyl Nitrate is an inflammatory drug originally prescribed to cure angina. When inhaled, the Nitrate family relaxes the muscles around the blood vessels, creating a rush of blood to the head, and relaxing certain areas of the body. It causes a hot, flushed feeling on the skin and also creates a feeling of euphoria. The effect lasts for about 3 minutes. 

Poppers were originally used in the 70ís, saw a decline during the AIDS epidemic, but are consistently used for sex. They are technically legal, as long as they are sold as Video Head Cleaner, or Liquid Incense.
