Does anyone know if kids huff asthma inhalers to get high?

My friend has a daughter (16) who used to need a new inhaler every 60-90 days.  Now it's every week.  Something's wrong with this picture.

Curious- There have been many reports of teens either abusing their own inhalers or borrowing a friend's to get high. Many schools are now trying to regulate their use. Inhaler abuse has potentially danger future consequences - a 2005 University of Michigan study indicated that children that misuse their inhalers are seven times more likely to abuse drugs and alcohol. I would have your friend talk to her daughter about inhalant abuse and watch for possible signs as listed on this site.
