Last evening CNN did a segment on the increasing, according to them, use of "bath salts" to get high. They showed small packets of the product, many of them labelled "White" and with other brand names. The reporter clailmed that those who have experimented with the "bath salts" have had horrendous experiences. He also hinted that there may be a connection with their use to recent cases of dismemberment and cannibalism--ilncluding the Canadian porn star and the "facial" cannibalism in Florida.

I looked in Wikipedia for "bath salts" and found the term, but it described the bath salts in the way I would expect most people to know. Can anyone add anything?

I've just done a Goggle search and there a few articles cited, including the fact that several states are considering banning them and more details about individuals' bizarre behaviour. Not sure where I've been but this is all news to me.

Bath salts are essentially hallucinogens which for now are legal in most states. There effect is erratic and as with other hallucinogens, there induced high may last for a very long time and have detrimental long term effects. Bath salts are typically made up of methylenedioxypyrovalerone, or MDPV, and mephedrone.It releases neurotransmitters such as epinephrine and dopamine, and can cause hallucinations and agitation. It affects every blood vessel in the body, which means the lungs, heart and kidney can all be harmed.

This information paraphrased from a local report of the large increase in ER visits related to these substances.

Yeah, I think you can probably kiss that goodbye. I had a former friend whose company I really enjoyed until he started doing meth and acting crazy all the damn time. I've heard he's graduated on to bath salts, so I plan to steer clear.

It's just the latest "creative" use of household products. When I was a kid, parents were scandalized to learn their kids were getting high sniffing airplane glue. For a while, there was a kerfuffle over alcohol content in cough syrups.

 

If there's an abuse to be had with a household product, someone will figure it out. It never ends well.

These are not household bath salts but recreational drugs re-labeled 'bath salts' just as some smoking substances were sold under the guise of 'incense' or poppers were once sold as 'video had cleaners' or 'air fresheners'.

 

But you're certainly right about creativity and houisehold products - recently there reports of kids finding ways to get drunk/high from hand sanitizer.

There were never any of those "air fresheners" or "video head cleaners" in my household. No sir. Never. Absolutely not.

Bath salts are mephedrone. Mephedrone was legal and very popular in the UK for a while but was scheduled due to its high abuse and rate of heart attacks. Its not a hallucinogen in my books (LSD/Mushrooms/DMT are hallucinogens)-- its along the lines of cocaine or meth with a shorter life span. As for the cannibalism stuff ... I can see where staying up for days upon days at a time with it is possible and could cause you to do crazy shit (as with any drug, like meth, coke etc. ). The 'go crazy and eat people' drug is PCP :p

 

I know in Atlanta its sold in smoke shops as a "shoe deodorizer" now days.

 

Its very bad for you, and addictive.
