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.

Ugh, those words are an indicator that the person using them has an IQ of 4. Go crawl in a ditch and die somewhere, you useless piece of human filth.

I like the mention near the end that cops aren't getting any additional training on how to deal with people on bath salts, because they already know what to do.
Translation: "we already have guns."

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.

ISO15693: TappingTheVein: Wait until they hear about the homemade drug Krokodil. Stronger than heroin and has the lovely side effect of turning you into a decaying zombie.

Thanks for that.

Good stuff to show a child on the dangers of drug addiction.


Or you could talk to them honestly instead of using scare tactics about drugs theyll likely never encounter.

Hankie Fest: 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.

Educate yo'selves.


Damn. Guess I'll stick with gold paint and freon. Go ahead and try to outlaw that DEA! The gold paint lobby and A/C industry will be all over your ass!

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?

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'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.

/'cause knowledge is power!

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.

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.

Why is this sh*t legal anyhow? How many stories are there every week with this drug as a culprit in some violent episode. Pot smokers just stay at home and order pizza. It's good for the economy.
