AbbeySomeone: tonguedepressor: AbbeySomeone: BarkingUnicorn: I wonder what happens if you bathe in faux bath salts.

Burning genitals?

I've got to thankFark and now the Sentinel for giving me and everyone else all the detailed info about what these look like and where to purchase them.

buckets_of_fun: MaudlinMutantMollusk: Well, at least it's legal

/just look at how many people died from smoking pot last week

You mad?

Why is this sh*t legal anyhow?

For the same reason why Drano is legal its not sold as a consumable product.

Not the same. People that ingest Drano are suicidal and either die or merely destroy their esophogus and innards.


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.

I think my favorite recreational drug was always mushrooms. I did LSD a few times and quite frankly found it boring, and inconsistent from one `batch' to the next. Also the side effect of feeling like the tin man before being oiled when you come down sucked a ton.

Mushrooms were always a happy jolly time and when it was over, it was over..

The problem is, the media only ever refers to them as "Bath Salts" not synthetic PCP or whatever they are. Unlike the spice/k2 stuff thats ALWAYS "Synthetic Marijuana" and not incense.

I have a 14 year old. It concerns me too. We teach our kids but let's be honest. They are dumbasses.


Ours are quite a bit younger, but we teach them anyway. I worry more about who is in their social circle.

styckx: extremely high body temperature, sleep deprivation, vivid hallucinations, enhanced strength, hostility and aggression. "[They] can hear voices, become paranoid,"

Yeah, that's not very much like any cocaine I've ever done. Maybe they should stop advertising it as cocaine and people might not use it


Sounds way more like a combo plate of meth and PCP.

If there's no connection to epsolm salt and synthetic PCP, this article did a terrible job explaining that. What's with the picture and the "Tide packets are sold behind the counter" thing. Is it an ingridient?

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.

namegoeshere: 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.


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.

TFA: Sales up since cannibal attack

A sales clerk at Peace Pipe says the Oakland Park smoke shop has been getting more inquiries about bath salts since the Causeway Cannibal attack.

You won't find bath salts at Peace Pipe - or synthetic marijuana, for that matter.


Ok, so explain how sales are up at the one place you interviewed that doesn't carry the stuff?? Oh, because they are getting more calls about it. How did you figure that out? Oh, you called them.

But what about methiopropamine? Still unscheduled, and not yet determined whether it falls under the analog clause. State law may ban it by name, but I'm not going to sift through all 50 to find out.

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.
