Drugs known As "Bath Salts"

Didn't even know there was such a thing.

Delaware bans drugs known as "bath salts"

Bath salts are commonly smoked, snorted or injected. Users experience an intense high, euphoria, extreme energy, hallucinations, insomnia and are easily provoked to anger, according to the federal Drug Enforcement Administration.

Sounds like half the people driving down the road these days.

They banned these things here last year, caused a bunch of deaths. Also banned the synthetic marjuana because it was causing heart and kidney problems. A friend of mine smoked some of it and his kidneys shut down, had to be on dialysis for weeks. Both things are really bad.

Interesting!! I didn't even know they existed until I heard it on the news. At first I thought they were banning actual bath salts.

That's what they are supposed to be and the synthetic marjuana is supposed to potpouri, but just like everything else, someone found another use for them and they started killing people. The bath salts were really bad here and the convience stores were making a killing on sales from both of them. What's really so bad, is that the people buying them because they were "legal", could have paid much less for the real thing than what they were paying for this stuff. One little packet of the synthetic stuff, just enough to make one joint, was like $18-$25. I don't know how much the bath salts were. It's just unbelievable what, mostly kids, will do to get a legal high, if there is such a thing as that.

Wow!! I had no idea. Cheap bath salts at the drugstore are like 5-7 dollars.
