What for some seems like a quick thrill, Doctor Robin Miller says could kill you.

It's the latest way people are trying to get buzzed. A YouTube video shows a young man using a bike pump to release vapor from champagne to vodka in a plastic bottle, then inhales it. 

Dr.Miller says not only can smoking alcohol kill you but it can also create long term brain damage because it has no where to go after you inhale it.

But it's not just something people do behind closed doors. Now a new device called a Vaportini is showing up at   restaurants and bars-  according to the devices website it's legal in all 50 states. The device is a mass produced version of the home-made smoking 

Craig Cosbey from four daughters pub and grill says he's never heard of people smoking alcohol and he says they won't be having a Vaportini at their bar any time soon.


After calling several bars in the Downtown Medford area and none of them knew what a Vaportini was. Dr. Miller says she hopes this dangerous craze will not come to Medford.
