What are poppers?
I was at a gas station and a couple of guys at the register grabbed a bottle that they called poppers, is this a vape? I looked at the bottle behind the counter and that name wasn't even on it? is it slang?

They probaly bought Doctor Pepper. Gas stations don't sell "poppers". Poppers are small phials of amyl nitrate.

Amyl nitrite. Sniff it and it opens up blood vessels, so it can be used to help angina, and a side-effect is to briefly make you feel more sexually aroused. It's popular with gay men for that purpose. Poppers is a slang name because it used to be available as capsules you pop open, though these days you're more likely to buy it in a small bottle.

The only poppers I know of, are Indian crunchy snacks.
