This marks the fifth reported case this year in which the Policia Local have intervened in instances of nitrous oxide misuse.

Authorities have emphasized that that the sale of nitrous oxide for recreational purposes is considered a violation of public health regulations.

The substance has gained attention as a matter of concern, particularly in the United Kingdom, where it has become one of the most frequently used substances among individuals aged 16 to 24.

Nitrous oxide misuse can have adverse health effects, especially when used repeatedly or over extended periods.

The substance can impact vitamin B12 metabolism and may lead to health complications, including suffocation and, in extreme cases, death.
