    Holyjames, I am so sorry to hear that. It sounds truly horrifying.

    Don't Get It...

    Why would anyone want to ingest these toxic chemicals? This sounds totally stupid to me.

    holyjames, not to be too philosophical, the desire for a high has always trumped logic, I think. Not too long ago, we had a story about helium that was truly frightening, which goes to show that even when the drugs aren't harsh chemicals we don't know, there is always a level of risk involved.

    Apparently, bath salts contain a bevy of harsh chemicals in addition to the psychoactive substances -- like lidocaine, a topical analgesic and anti-itch agent. Why is it in some varieties of bath salts? Who knows, but it along with a lot of other stuff that hasn't even been identified yet is getting circulated throughout your body when you ingest the powder. Think of it this way -- would you knowingly snort a line of athletes foot powder?

    Interesting Article I Found:

    Look what I found on the subject:

    On Saturday, May 26, a man was brutalized in what has been described by several media organizations as a zombie attack. But unlike the usual plot in zombie films, the perpetrator was not a victim of an apocalyptic virus. According to Miami-Dade law enforcement, the 31-year-old man was under the influence of a synthetic drug called "bath salts."

    Armando Aguilar, president of the Fraternal Order of Police, told the media that "When the officer approached [the suspect], told him to stop, pointed a gun at him, [the suspect] turned around and growled like a wild animal and kept eating at the man's face." Given no other option, police were forced to shoot the attacker. The victim is reported to have lost 75 percent of his face.

    "[Bath salts] causes them to go completely insane and become very violent," said Aguilar, reflecting on this and four other Florida cases involving extreme violence and this synthetic drug."

    My Comments

    When I first heard this story I was watching the television on mute, so all I could see was that someone had become frenzied after using bath salts and resorted to cannibalism. It terrified me -- until I realized that the bath salts being discussed were not the same delightfully-scented crystals my sister is fond of scattering into the tub.

    Now I know that bath salts are a drug -- but what kind of drug? Media outlets can't seem to agree -- is it synthetic cocaine or LSD or ecstasy? Or all of the above? I looked into it and the answer is that it depends. Bath salts are not any one single drug in the same way that "ice," for example, is used to refer to crystal methamphetamine. The term "bath salts" describes a whole class of synthetic stimulants, packed into grab bag of other chemicals, many of which remain unidentified.
