Nicotine on the mainline.

[[From the News of the Totally Ridiculous Dept.]]

Apparently there’s a new nicotine-laced evaporating gel product (sounds like the hand-sanitizer stuff) called Nicogel. That you can rub into your hands, for those times when you just can’t smoke, but want to absorb a hit of nicotine straight through your skin!

“...can be used when smoking is inconvenient, such as work, on an airplane, in a theater, or these days almost any public place.”

I can see this creating a new generation of abusers like the French absinthe drinker. People out of their minds on nicotine, rolling in the gutter, smearing this gel all over themselves, snorting it, whatever.
