An untapped market is drowning. The effect is essentially the same: an unwanted agent enters the lungs and eventually, the person suffocates. My idea would be to sell small vials of water that the person would inhale into their lungs, providing that euphoric feeling of not being able to breath. I can just see the masses lining up now...
I have a friend from school who lost his mother in a house fire, after she fell asleep with a lit joint in her hand. He was in the house at the time and has never gotten over the fact that he survived and didn't save her.
