I would say that I am shocked that there are still folks that don't know this, but I actually had to explain this to someone at work earlier this week. She had just heard the term bath salts in relation to drug use and was freaking out because her mother had given her six year old son some eucalyptus bath salts to help with his asthma. So I explained to her that they were not the same thing, and that her little son was not getting high in his eucalyptus bath.

Three ODs alone in my small town this week - one dead, one in critical condition and one brain dead. They say that heroin is also making a comeback.

We had an elderly (85y/o) lady in our city call the police to remove the bath salts from her house.
she was afraid to throw them out, because 'the kids might get them'.

Just like the synthetic pot stuff, once states start banning it, they'll move on to something else to get high on like hand sanitizer.

Wow, I didn't realize that bath salts came in a sealed foil-wrapped package with product design and everything. There are factories for this stuff? That's pretty funny.

I always thought it was a granular drug that came in cheap baggies like meth, coke or PCP. This is a new level of professionalism for recreational pharmaceuticals.

Because it is not illegal, yet. It is also cheap due to being legal. So the powers that be will make bath salts illegal. Then some enterprising person will invent a new, even more dangerous substance that is not illegal. And so it goes.

I'm not embarrassed to admit that I didn't know they weren't actual bath salts until yesterday. Hell, people will smoke damn near anything to get high. People huff dust-off, they sniff glue, they smoke all manor of crazy plants...

I just figured there was some chemical in traditional bath salts that would mess you up good if eaten/smoked. I'm not particularly interested in exploring new/dangerous drugs so I couldn't be assed to do any sort of investigating.

Most bath salts (the tub kind) are epsom salts (also traditionally used as a laxative) and scent. So depending on what the scent is, you may get a bit sick from eating them, and you'd definitely get the wicked splattery shiats, but I doubt they'd kill you. Snorting them would hurt like a biatch, though. Ow.

This is just a case of information spreading. We have a better idea of what will get us high, how to take it, mix it, prepare for it, enjoy it, etc than we ever have before, and they banned all the good, healthy safe drugs like marijuana, lsd, mushrooms, dmt and mescaline. You take some kids who don't have any connections or put them in an area that's just run dry from a bust, and they get creative. Technically you can buy forms of all the drugs I mentioned legally, if you're willing to put time and effort in (still illegal to prepare and consume) but if you aren't you've got to go to alternatives.

Bath salts man? This is just "plant food" and meow meow all over again. Take a research stim, package it as something it's not, sell it until the horror stories make it illegal, then you switch to the next one. No one is ever going to run out of ways to sell drugs to your kids. Just tell em the truth about what is and what isn't safe. If you try to say you're legally insane after 3 uses of lsd or you know some guy who got so stoned on marihuana cigarettes that he jumped off a building they aren't going to believe you when you say snorting unstudied stimulants is a recipe for a scary time.

What I mean to say is legalize all drugs.

You're right, wrong analogy. But substitute spray paint for Drano and it works. Even though spray paint has an intended use that doesn't involve being ingested a product doesn't have to have a specific designed usage to be marketed and sold.

If people had taken Pet Rocks and hit themselves in the head with it because it felt so good when they stopped not many would be calling for the outlawing of it.

It is so absurd that certain kinds of wild mushrooms are illegal. I guess it's not much different than certain plants being illegal. With the insanity of War on Drugs, I'm surprised farmers and ranchers are not getting arrested for it naturally growing in their fields.

THEY'RE ILLEGAL.

At least, according to Reuters and the DEA.

FTA: The DEA last fall banned three chemicals commonly used to make bath salts: mephedrone, MDPV, and methylone. Possession or sale of these synthetic stimulants could result in federal drug charges.

In addition, at least 38 states have enacted bath-salt bans, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. The bans spell out a wide range of penalties for possession and trafficking, and include a variety of different chemicals that can be used to make bath salts, not just the three stimulants banned by the DEA.

Epsom salts are a magnesium source. Your intestine knows how to get rid of that, but some idiots locally have apparently been injecting it. High magnesium in the blood throws off the electrolyte balance that keeps your heart beating.

Had this conversation with an ER nurse two weeks ago. She didn't know why people were snorting/shooting 'bath salts' and I didn't know why people would confuse epsom for some drug. I gave her some leads on what 'bath salts' were, and got to hear horror stories in return.

Snorting it would do more than hurt. Epsom isn't always sterile, and salt will crack the thin membrane between the nose and brain blood vessels. I'll leave your imagination to figure out what happens next.

Oh, for fark's sake, already.

If we have actual SCIENCE proving a drug is less dangerous to overall human health than, say, refined sugar, can we just legalize it? Please?

I'd like my lifetime to include some point in history in which sinister, War-On-Drugs propaganda doesn't dominate what people can ingest. Keep the dangerous drugs illegal (coke, crack, heroin, etc.), legalize the harmless or helpful ones (lsd, pot, shrooms, mdma, etc.).

It would actually be farking easy to do, and a great source of money that doesn't involve raising taxes on billionaires.

It would, of course, open up more than a few minds, and destabilize the moralistic/materialistic Habitrail those billionaires have built for us. So it can't happen.

You can laugh, but that's only because it hasn't happened to you yet. Like a lot of people, I started with playing around with a few things, only at parties at first, and then once I got addicted I couldn't stop. I didn't want to stop. Soon the snuggies weren't enough, I had to have something harder, and I went through slap-chop and Mighty Putty and GoJos strapped to both ears. After a while I couldn't take it anymore, I was having vivid hallucinations of Billy Mays and Vince Offer whenever I'd close my eyes. No one could help, no one wanted to help. Finally I hit rock bottom, got busted by the FBI after I flipped out on a three-day ShamWow binge and tried to eat some guys face on the side of the road. Lucky for me, I finally got help, but not everyone does.

One of my old bandmates is a large mexican. We watched some doc on weed that stated in part that one of the early scare tactics for weed was saying that it gave mexis and 'negroes' the strength of ten men. From then on he and our black singer were insufferable with jokes re: "Don't get me stoned. You won't like me when I'm stoned...".

Here are the forums for the Ivory Dove Ultra, if anyone's interested:

Link

A review: I've actually decided to try to take a bubble bath... which honestly is kind of f'ed up for a guy.... but... I did get a chance to see how the bath with the Ivory Dove was.... although, since I am kind of new to this... I find other ways of doing the exact same thing... sometimes.... other ways of adding it to the water work better... in fact, it worked so damned well for my bubble bath, I didn't put much in... but like I said... I first put it in a bottle of pure water... (so that it mixes better in the bath...) and dumped it in the bath, I guess at a longer rate... as in... I started a little.. then poured more in... and a little more... say... it of course took me around 2 hours before I got the bath setup at first.. (yeah, I am a perfectionist, and very slow at it... grin) but I have to say... it worked very very very good... the bubble bath was concentrated just the same... so it was very much a potent bath... all I got to say with these bubble baths... is take your time man... space 'em out for the best effect... and overall a chance to save the left over.. cause once I made a bottled bubble bath mix... it only took like say... let me think.. maybe about a shot's worth into the bathtub to be effective. In fact... it was so concentrated I got to save the rest of the 8oz bottle to use in like maybe 4 bubble baths... just figured you guys might like to hear the story.

"You can't buy these at Bed, Bath and Beyond"

Get snarky all you want, Mr. Media Dude - but part of the confusion is because you dumb farks didn't know they were not actual bath salts when you first started reporting about them either. When news reports first started mentioning them, they were not "designer drugs known as 'bath salts'", they were simply called "bath salts" - which means they were ignorant too.

You know what would probably start a civil war?

If someone figured out how to easily and cheaply refine crude oil or gasoline to make people high. A real enjoyable high, not a instant brain killer like huffing.

The authoritarian "nobody can have unapproved fun" portion of the government will be attacking the "I want to give money to my political allies and the foreigners who financed my election" portion of the government.

The can't make possession and transport of oil or gasoline illegal, they can't heavily regulate such huge commodity without increasing the price through the roof. I think it would take something like that to end the failed war on drugs.

Psyche myself up, tell myself that a little tongue never hurt anyone. It'd be just like making out only violent and gross. After a couple of days of walking past all that delicious face meat I'd probably break down and at least nibble some cheek steak.

"Hey all.

My duckbilled platterpus landlord or "Bill", that lets me stay in his underground lair in exchange for keeping his £33 a day dutch techno addiction in influx, the pinball machine engineer and part time luge instructor ingested a full 1 of the new formula "doves original" the other night. An occasional caner, slight build, medium tolerance.

20:50 ---dropped on empty stomach, a meal eaten 3 hours beforehand, no other drugs or alcohol consumed. To note; "Bill" had been on a course of H202 for certain ailments for 5 days prior, but none consumed the day of dove ingestion.

T+1:00 ---blurry vision, pupils starting to dilate, anxious/edgy/jittery feeling. Tightening of jaw, but no gurning inclinations. Also slight nausea and tight stomach.

T+1:30 ---starting to come up; a dirty wired effect. Immediately wanted to come down. The sensation of time slowing down and mild increase in awareness, yet a feeling of detachment from reality also. ["Bill" states that he can envisage people with serious mental issues at the time of ingestion, harming themselves in any given form due to the dsyphoric nature of the "low"]

T+2:30 ---fully up and plateaued, very intense, yes very strong as the merchant site says. No euphoria, quite the opposite in fact. No unconditional love/empathy feelings what so ever. Increase in heart-rate and nasty rushes. Any change in temperature hot or cold, had the same feeling on the body, a burning sensation that wasn't pleasant. No appetite supression. Some light geometric visuals and incapable of getting comfortable in any position. No pleasurable effects towards music or even solfeggio frequencies, no urge to dance, total lack of motivation to do anything physical. Didn't even feel anything like MDMA/E/Meph, not even close.

T+4:00 ---still as intense as the time of plateau, no leveling off, just a relentless barrage of bio-torment.

T+6:00 ---still going strong, very unpleasant, really desiring to come down.

T+8:00 ---starting to very gradually come down, still very unpleasant, still wired/anxious/stressed/restless/unable to get comfortable.

T+10:00 ---fully down, but still feel the dirty poison in "Bill's" veins, gross insomnia, headache. Still no sleep a further 10 hours later.

In conclusion; "Bill" reports he wouldn't try even half of this repugnant mixture of chemicals ever again or any of the am-hi-co range for that matter. To quote Bam Margera "I'd rather rip my dick off and throw it in a lake then do that again!" ---not quite, but "Bill" said pretty freaking close! It felt nothing like an "E" as its marketed as, just a dsyphoric/dirty/anxious/speedy feeling, that is relentless for the full course of the "low", with no tapering off, until the horrendous comedown that is. Now not surprised why the merchant was offering buy one get one free on this product, cause they wanna get rid of this garbage!

I would like to add, "Bill's" 7+ hours of bio-torment was not in vein, if he can inform others about his experience on this crap, then hopefully that will be enough for others to avoid putting themselves through chemical induced hell.

Thanks for reading.
Cheers,
Canus.

Christ, now I'm going to be sick. Is there ANYTHING people won't put into their bodies to get high?

And are we SURE it's better to keep pot illegal than to just let people smoke something we know won't kill them and probably won't turn them into face-eating freaks?
 
2012-06-17 07:02:17 PM  

Hip_and_Edgy: This is just a case of information spreading. We have a better idea of what will get us high, how to take it, mix it, prepare for it, enjoy it, etc than we ever have before, and they banned all the good, healthy safe drugs like marijuana, lsd, mushrooms, dmt and mescaline. You take some kids who don't have any connections or put them in an area that's just run dry from a bust, and they get creative. Technically you can buy forms of all the drugs I mentioned legally, if you're willing to put time and effort in (still illegal to prepare and consume) but if you aren't you've got to go to alternatives.

Bath salts man? This is just "plant food" and meow meow all over again. Take a research stim, package it as something it's not, sell it until the horror stories make it illegal, then you switch to the next one. No one is ever going to run out of ways to sell drugs to your kids. Just tell em the truth about what is and what isn't safe. If you try to say you're legally insane after 3 uses of lsd or you know some guy who got so stoned on marihuana cigarettes that he jumped off a building they aren't going to believe you when you say snorting unstudied stimulants is a recipe for a scary time.

What I mean to say is legalize all drugs.


See your still wrong...you dont want them legalized, you want them decriminalized.

Dead thread anyway so here:

SWIM's experience:

Setting: Apartment Complex, Alone

Time: Thursday Night, 8:00 pm

T - SWIM crushes up one Am-Hi-Co Dove Ultra and parachutes it. He watches the Zanpakuto season of Bleach to pass the time.

T+1:30 - SWIM notices only minor effects. May just be placebo. Keep in mind SWIM had just finished a huge meal prior to ingestion.

T+2:00 - Onset of rushes and pseudo-psychedelic frame of mind. SWIM decides that now would be a good time for a little catalyst. SWIM smokes two bongfulls of Magic Gold herbal incense.

T+2:15 - "Oh my! Such a difference!" Swim exclaims. His entire body feels like one wave of blissful energy. His thought process becomes quite enigmatic.

T+2:20 - SWIM decides to take this experience to the next level. He crushes up his SECOND Dove Ultra and parachutes it. He takes one more bong bowl of Magic Gold, and leaves his apartment complex. Little did he know what he was truly in store for.

*NOTE: At this point in time, SWIM realizes upon retrospection, that the first pill he took probably wasn't even close to it's climactic point yet.*

T+2:30 - The walk outside was a good idea. The air feels amazing. Each step brings swim that much closer to the pearly gates. Just how long the staircase to heaven takes to unwind is something SWIM will learn over the course of the night.

T+3:15 - Back in the apartment. Probably the worst choice Swim could have made. For it is here that begins the nightmarish hell that will cloud over swim for the next 24 hours. But for now, do not be alarmed. Swim is still blissful for the moment.

*Note - the following happened over the course of about 8 or so hours*

Here, it seemed, like SWIM had uncovered the secrets to his inner-most desires, and the workings of his thought-process. All physical and spiritual aspirations now seemed possible, and sat squarely on Swim's lap of responsibility. If he were to be eternally happy, he would have to bring himself there through his own effort.

In SWIM's mind arose a point. A point which always seems within grasp, but a point which to this day has always remained unreachable. Swim recognizes the existence of this point sometimes even when he isn't high. It is this point that one's mind is constantly trying to bring about, constantly trying to wrap itself around, constantly trying to move beyond. And yet, no matter how valient the effort, this point seems to be more of a tease than a guide. It will convince you that your work is almost done, that you are almost here... almost there... almost where you want to be... and then shoot you into the shadowy oblivion of turmoil as you struggle to understand why you have not yet achieved the experience of comprehending that point.

The reason I bring up this point, is because for the next 24 hours, closing the gap between himself and that point became SWIM's soul focus. Nothing else mattered. Every action boiled down to the nanosecond was towards this effort. It began very pleasantly. It began with unarguable knowledge that tonight... tonight SWIM would reach that point. Tonight SWIM would uncover this mystery. And tomorrow, SWIM will be a new man.

This was swims guiding force, and the more he heard it, the happier he became, because he knew, no matter how much he had to struggle tonight, no matter how much anguish and pain he went through over the next several hours, at the end of the hole, a new light would shine upon his world.

From what began as an energetic and seemingly outgoing trip took a drastic turn to reclusive. Everything became part of the equation. SWIM's senses, the world, the universe, his thoughts, his movements... they were now tangible things that needed to be programmed towards a certain end. He often found himself contorting his body into weird shapes like a piece of a jigsaw puzzle in order to complete the next step in the enigma.

Eventually, the positive outlook turned to despair. He was now locked into some sort of programming loop that would not allow him to stop and think of anything else. He was being forced to continue. Each second seemed to last an eternity as he was pressured into solving the next riddle. The next step that would surely bring him closer to the ultimate answer.

He spent about 8 hours in a contorted position on his couch completely tranced in one of these riddles, and he finally opened his eyes. Nothing was better. Nothing had happened. His hours and hours of grueling work in his mind and his senses had not brought him to this magical point where things were clearer and made more sense, but now everything was 100x more jumbled.

T+12:30 - His ego was sore, his mind was suffering, and he felt physical pain as to his lack of accomplishment. It was now 8:30 in the morning the next day (friday), and his lack of sleep combined with his meaningless effort the previous night left him in a state of confused depression. Everything he had worked for didn't even make sense anymore. His understanding of the way things were and what it is he had to do next were just useless psychotic ramblings of insane people. He wanted to stop, but the momentum in his mind was too much to control. He was being physically forced to continue this conundrum, and it was making him insane.

He thought he may have a trump card. Perhaps if he smoked himself silly with Magic Gold he would be able to lie down and go to sleep. He executed his plan.

But it was the worst idea he could have had. The incense devoured his sense of control, and he was pushed onto the ground with fear, hatred, and anger. "Why the fark did I take this stupid shiat?!?!?!? What is wrong with me!? Am I crazy? Will I ever return to normal?" was all that SWIM could think.

The incense seemed to lock SWIM into a mental prison. It was a constant fight to produce any coherent or logical thought, and it was a losing battle. Every time any "creative thought process" or "energy" would swirl around waiting to be invoked, it would get stuck. SWIM would continuously get stuck on useless questions and thoughts. He could not move past them. It was like there was a glass ceiling, and SWIM could see all the thoughts that he wanted to have, wanted to think, but every time he would make an attempt, he would smash into the glass ceiling, and his thoughts would squish and smear and tear and try to move beyond, but they were shot endlessly in every direction possible except the one where he wanted to be.

The Doves made the incense high last much longer, and when he finally felt like he was coming down, returning to normal, he was stupid enough to take another toke of herbal incense.

SWIM continued in this shiatty situation until about 8:00 pm friday, and was finally able to get to sleep. He slept for hours and hours, not wanting to wake up, for fear of what consciousness would lead him to next, and finally awoke 15 hours later at 1:00pm saturday.

He felt quite strange, kind of how one would feel the following day after a DXM trip or heavy MDMA trip, except much more depressed. He tried his chances with herbal incense again, this time using Voodoo Child instead of Magic Gold, and was again pummeled into a state of dysphoria. The dysphoria lasted most of the day, until about 7:00 pm saturday night, and then he took a drive over to his dad's house (his dad is out of town and he had to go water the plants). SWIM watered the plants and went to bed at about 9:00 pm saturday.

Now it's sunday, and SWIM still feels very strange, and is afraid of using any herbal incense for a while.

Overall, whatever the fark is in these doves is farking insane. This shiat will knock the crap out of you and laugh while you suffer. Swim is quite an experienced drug user, and he has never been so dysphoric in his life.

SWIM wants to know: WTF is in these things? bk-MBDB? Erowid states that bk-MBDB has effects similar to, but milder than MDMA. SWIM has taken pure MDMA countless times before and has never felt this overly messed up.

SWIM will never be using these again, and warns anyone that if they do, don't take 2!

badhatharry: styckx: Why is this rising in use? Or is it a case of it's cheap as shiat and people are cutting it into meth to score high profits?

Or are hipsters ironically taking it?

Because it is not illegal, yet. It is also cheap due to being legal. So the powers that be will make bath salts illegal. Then some enterprising person will invent a new, even more dangerous substance that is not illegal. And so it goes.


Also, people on probation are convincing each other that it does not violate their court requirements for sobriety and drug treatment. However, some of the new urine tests ARE capable of detecting these drugs...The labs send out shiny new product rollout flyers all the time.

To be candid, someone who is not meeting treatment requirements to stay out of jail PROBABLY has a drug problem.

Sultan Of Herf: Hip_and_Edgy: This is just a case of information spreading. We have a better idea of what will get us high, how to take it, mix it, prepare for it, enjoy it, etc than we ever have before, and they banned all the good, healthy safe drugs like marijuana, lsd, mushrooms, dmt and mescaline. You take some kids who don't have any connections or put them in an area that's just run dry from a bust, and they get creative. Technically you can buy forms of all the drugs I mentioned legally, if you're willing to put time and effort in (still illegal to prepare and consume) but if you aren't you've got to go to alternatives.

Bath salts man? This is just "plant food" and meow meow all over again. Take a research stim, package it as something it's not, sell it until the horror stories make it illegal, then you switch to the next one. No one is ever going to run out of ways to sell drugs to your kids. Just tell em the truth about what is and what isn't safe. If you try to say you're legally insane after 3 uses of lsd or you know some guy who got so stoned on marihuana cigarettes that he jumped off a building they aren't going to believe you when you say snorting unstudied stimulants is a recipe for a scary time.

What I mean to say is legalize all drugs.

See your still wrong...you dont want them legalized, you want them decriminalized.



every time someone says "meow meow" i immediately think of Xhinese food. is there some connection i'm not getting correctly in my brain??

cleveoh: Do they make Kosher bath salts?


Is cannibalism kosher? Maybe if the victim has a tattoo like this:

I didn't know this until just this week. I finally heard enough about bath salts getting people high (Thanks, Fark!) that I ended up Googling it to see WTF was going on. (Thanks, Google!) Ohhh...they're not actually bath salts, they're just called that. Makes much more sense.

I think it's a mix of all of the above.

Just like the synthetic pot stuff, once states start banning it, they'll move on to something else to get high on like hand sanitizer.

Actually, drug chemists just alter the molecule a bit to make it legal again. Trying to ban substances is like playing whack-a-mole with those guys.


The obvious solution is to just make molecules illegal. That will put a stop to that nonsense.

I don't know about it really being that "cheap".

FTFA: Bath salts that get you high sell for $40 a gram.

You can get the real deal for only $10 more a gram ($50) so I think it is more ease of access than price. You don't have to know a dealer to get the bath salts, just a convenience store clerk.

"It is very much like cocaine," said Dr. Morton Levitt, a pathologist and chairman of the Integrated Medical Science Department at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton. "It creates a state of euphoria."


So cocaine causes euphoria, and so do Bath Salts. So, anything that causes the same thing are equal?

15 Year old Glennfiddich Scotch is very much like Turpentine. They create a state of Euphoria when drank.

/byline now plz
