Nitrous—often called "laughing gas" or whip-its—is inhaled for a cheap high.
28-year-old Amado Gomez of Pembrook Pines, FL, is charged with manufacture-delivery of nitrous oxide after police arrested him in the 1000 block of W. Newport at 11:20 last night. He is also being held on an out-of-state warrant. Gomez’s vehicle, which police said contained “several bottles of nitrous” was impounded.
Gomez was arrested in 2013 for selling nitrous oxide in Orlando, according to Florida state records.
