Bath Salts Drug, New Warning

January 23, 2011 by staff 

Bath Salts Drug, Bay County Sheriff Frank McKeithen is legitimately worried about Spring Break 2011 has coincided with the emergence of another drug knockoff that has the potential to appeal to younger users who have no idea what the side effects could be.

The latest to emerge is known as “bath salts, and people buy it and sniff it lawfully present in our emergency rooms, attacking family members with machetes and generally acting on their mind.

As drugs are outlawed, those who want to make money with a capacity of transporting people out of their difficulty and real worlds into one, where everything is OK generally chosen from the sale of a form alcohol or do something illegal.

But a niche market has emerged lately, riding the wake of chemists who have already found ways to skirt federal and state laws dealing with controlled substances.

This market – synthetic drugs with chemical compositions slightly different from the chemical composition of illegal drugs – has appeared on my radar in the 1990s. Ecstasy has emerged on the club scene as the drug of choice and was quickly outlawed.

But a drug known as “Scoop” has emerged to take its place. It was a cheap substitute, which lists among its ingredients a brand of detergent, the same stuff used to strip wood floor polish.

People in Bay County were to appear in the emergency room, and then they started dying, and nobody really seemed to know what to do. There were no real community efforts to cope. The deaths continued.

When Neil Brown stood on the bath salts, he took his carving knife and cut his face and stomach repeatedly. Brown survived, but authorities say others are not so lucky after snorting, injecting or smoking powders with those harmless-sounding names like Ivory Snow, Dove Red and Vanilla Sky.

Law enforcement officials and poison control centers ie bath salts, with there complex chemical names are an emerging threat in many U.S. states where the authorities talk about the sales ban. Some say that their effects can be as powerful as those of methamphetamine.

In the Deep South to California, emergency calls are reported on exposure to the powders often contain stimulants: mephedrone and methylenedioxypyrovalerone, also known as MDPV.

Sold under names such as Wave Ivory Bliss, White Lightning and Hurricane Charlie, the chemicals can cause hallucinations, paranoia, rapid heartbeat and thoughts of suicide, authorities say. In addition to bath salts, chemicals can be found in plant foods that are sold legally in stores and online. However, they are not necessarily used for the purpose on the label.
