being that I work in the substance abuse world: I was wondering how the bath salts thing is going where you guys live. its gotten pretty popular here. all the patients I have had describe it as pretty intense.

Just curious how popular it is in other areas. we are getting people in our detox unit pretty regularly from this stuff.

Never heard of this until now. I had to look it up.

Hallucinogens Masked as “Bath Salts”

The law enforcement group has been alarmed of the influx of highly hallucinogenic and potentially lethal drugs sold legally in most states, and these come in the form of bath salts.

Director Mark Ryan of the Louisiana Poison Center confirmed that in the first month of 2011, an estimated 248 bath salts-linked calls from 25 different states have been received by authorities. This figure is indeed a cause for alarm. Comparing data to last year, only 234 calls were made in the whole of 2010.

bath-salts-300x163.jpgInvestigators have uncovered the circulation of $20 packets sold in corner stores, truck stops, and even on the Internet. They are marketed as bath salts or at times plant food that carries disclaimers such as “not for human consumption” and with no regulating body or rules applied on these substances. The problem is that these chemicals contain stimulants, including mephedrone.

Jeffrey Baldwin, professor of pharmacy practice and pediatrics at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha has this to say on mephedrone: “It’s a derivative that’s very similar to amphetamines, and its side effects are largely the same side effects we see with amphetamines in large dose. Those side effects would be increased heart rate and blood pressure, not sleeping, not eating and eventually becoming paranoid.”

The “bath salts” have acquired brand names like Ivory Wave and Vanilla Sky which is typically smoked, injected, snorted, and can be mixed in water or other liquids as beverage. “If you take the very worst of some of the other drugs — LSD and Ecstasy with their hallucinogenic-delusional type properties, PCP with extreme agitation, superhuman strength and combativeness, as well as the stimulant properties of cocaine and meth — if you take all the worst of those and put them all together this is what you get. It’s ugly.” added Director Ryan.

Cross-dresser kills goat while high on bath salts

Posted in Bootnotes, 4th May 2011 12:57 GMT

A 19-year-old American man has blamed the narcotic effects of bath salts* for sparking an episode that resulted in the death of a pygmy goat.

Mark L Thompson of Alum Creek, West Virginia, was arrested on Monday after police had been called by the owner of a pygmy goat, a neighbour of Thompson's, who had complained that the 19-year-old was holding the beast captive in his home.

The neighbour's nephew and two women went into Thompson's house. Thompson warned them off, saying he was naked.

When they pushed Thompson's bedroom door open, the neighbour told The Charleston Gazette: "He was standing there with his pants down. He had on women's clothing and the goat was dead and there was blood everywhere. It was just a scene."

A pornographic photo was apparently found lying near the carcass of the goat.

Thompson took to his heels, still in bra and panties, and police spent several hours scouring local woods for the cross-dressing caprine killer.

When they cornered him eventually, Thompson told police he had been high on bath salts for several days.

The teenager is being held on animal cruelty charges. He was taken into custody by Adult Protective Services.

* "Bath salts", a designer drug, has become the latest legal high worry for the authorities on both sides of the Atlantic. It is typically based on methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV) and is also known as Magic and Super Coke. It induces similar effects to mephedrone, the last big legal high worry. It is not actually recommended for use as part of a beauty regime, but rather is sold in packaging that mimics that of a beauty product... Lawmakers are working towards a total ban.

I wanna know who the first guy was to try this stuff and figure out that it had these hallucinogenic properties.

And then how long it took him to convince his friend to try it as well...

no no no, its labeled as bath salts but its not the kind granny has, its sold like what spice was sold as alternative drugs. its sold as gas stations, etc.

it was made as a cocaine alternative, like spice was a potpourri, but both are synthetic drugs.

bad part is there are few if any test that pick these things up so parents or probation officers cant tell if you are using.

No clue what "spice" is, but I think I understand now... Basically sold as stuff that's legal that can get you high?

it doesnt look like "bath salt" its very very fine like cocaine.

go to a gas station and ask them if they have any. take a look for yourself

No thanks... If I want cocaine, I'll buy cocaine... :D

Yeah, the Army is now giving the no tolerance warning to any and all soldiers about the usage of bath salts and spice.

I wonder what stoner freak came up with the idea for snorting ******* bath salts.

It's not the regular bath salts stuff. This stuff is specifically marketed like that, but it's designed to be used as a drug.

Am I the only one that thinks the bolded part has just as much to do with this as the bath salts?
