This depends on how much you inhale. Lots of exposure can rob your body of oxygen, replacing it with harmful carcinogens, which can lead to brain damage or asphyxiation. If you start to feel dizzy, sluggish, or just spaced out, take a break and get some fresh air.

Yes it can be dangerous if you inhale too much gas fumes. If you are outside then you will be fine while inhaling it, but if you are inside a place and inhaling them, then that is bad.
