This was decades ago, but some young punk in his teens or twenties was pulled over and police discovered empty gas canisters that completely filled his back seat area. There wasn't any room to throw anymore without spilling back over the front seat. On the front seat was an opener and dozens of filled canisters. To each their own, but it was a good thing to get that monstrosity off the road.
When I was in college we had a laughing gas blowout. My friends were experimenting with different kinds of drugs. I didn’t like laughing gas very much, it was like hyperventilating. I think that a big part of that blowout was an attempt to crash the party of some unwanted non gratas.
