Ally Blackmore started this petition to Gold Coast City Council, State Governments, Coles, Woolworths and local shops

As a youth worker on the GC and Logan areas i have seen the horrible yet increasingly common impact of chroming Rexona deodorant cans, also known as Rexing. Chrome gives young people a temporary high each inhale. Rexona is the choice amongst our kids as the harmful chemicals provides a stronger high unlike other cans. Rexing can freeze lungs and has caused many instant deaths, however there are many longer term affects on organs, brain development and physical growth. 

Rexona is easily accessible and easy to steal from our local shops. The impact not only directly affects the young people chroming but also the wider community, shop owners, etc in many ways. 

Some local councils such as Alice Springs have implemented cages around items such as Rexona, mouth wash, etc or moved these items to close near the counters- making for the items to be less easy to access and decreasing incorrect use. Similar to what they did with spray paint. 

Please support this petition to raise awareness across the community as it is not only our most vulnerable young people chroming, this is an epidemic across the kids of our community in any social class. Lets raise this to the local councils and state governments and push for an important change our GC and Logan communities need!
