doglover: AbbeySomeone: Whoever is in charge of drug busts needs to raid every ghetto mart in the nation that carries this sh*t, immediately. Leave the pot smokers alone and concentrate on this and the meth people.

Abbey, it's legal. 100 percent.

First lawmakers need to get up ons. But the problem isn't the chemical. It's the "war on drugs" we're waging. If shrooms, acid, and pot were legal no one would be going to head shops to find synthetic chemicals that haven't been illegalized yet. Hell, if we legalize EVERYTHING, no one would use PCP or meth. Too many safer highs.


Until the safe highs, in safe dosages, stop doing the trick. Most of my druggie friends gave it up at that point and figure it isn't meant to be. A couple decided "safe" was a secondary concern vs. "high."

The less said about that, the better. But afaik none of them have eaten a face yet.

A little of both, I suspect. This shiat is really, reall bad, but these days cops are blaming every whacked out drug incident on TEH BATH SALTS without even waiting for tox screen results.

It's funny how all of these stories (including that of the face eater) only ALLEGE that bath salts were being used. No toxicology studies had been done at the time the face eater story came out - it was just some cop speculating that bath salts may have been used. Same here, it's all conjecture. May have been bath salts, could have been something different.

This is how "drug hysteria" gets started.

Don't get me wrong, I'd never touch bath salts myself (as one with a heart condition, a heavy stimulant is probably the last thing I'd take, either that or jimsonweed), but getting the public worked up into a frenzy over something that hasn't definitively been proven to cause the supposed effects is counterproductive and destructive.

If bath salts ARE as bad as alleged, we have only the drug war to blame. If simpler, less harmful (relatively) substances were legal, we wouldn't have these weird designer drugs whose potency and effects are largely unknown. Not saying we should start selling prefilled heroin syringes at corner liquor stores, but reason should prevail over hysteria.

I think both. People hear the stories surrounding this drug on the news and think, "It can't be that bad if it's really legal." Go to their local shop that carries it, try it and then do the things like in the story. Then their story becomes part of the news where someone else hears that story and thinks, "It can't be that bad if it's really legal," rinse and repeat.

It's really the craziness that the drug is causing. Stories of superhuman strength, cannibalism, taking bullets and still walking and such sound like they are straight out of fantasy novel.

To me, bath salts sound like demon possession in drug form. Like you would shoot the person who is psychotically high on them and then douse them with a good splash of holy water afterward just to be safe.

Why do you people keep trying to make this argument?

Alcohol is a legal high, but it isn't the one you want.

If weed was a legal high, it might not be the one someone else wants.

You can make everything except meth legal and people will still go to meth because a) it's the high they want. And b) if it's illegal it must be awesome! If this wasn't the case, there wouldn't be a new drug craze every 3yrs.

Don't get me wrong, I've smoked pot. It wasn't my thing. I'll take a jack and coke. I think as far as drugs go pot is about as harmless as they come, but I don't buy the argument.

PaisleyHunter: Fake a back injury and get some percoset. Your house will be clean and you will think you are pretty.


I have a real back injury and cannot get shiat for it. I know fakers walking around with nearly unlimited legal prescriptions. So I guess I'll do some bath salts.

wow... bath salts are right up there with heroin and cyanide... Who in their right mind, even if an ignorant dipshiat, would gamble with bath salts after hearing about just a few incidents like these?

I just hope these Darwin award contestants kill themselves with as little trauma inflicted on those around them as is possible.

I work at a head shop that sells this crap. Had an incident with a guy a few weeks back, we locked him out the shop because he was raving and screamig about a man with a gun in the parking lot. He was the only person there, and he ended up calling the cops in himself.

People buy the salts because they are already tweakers and bath salts are cheaper and easier to obtain than meth. Or they are on probation for meth/coke and stick to the legal.

Having tried them before, it is a painful burn followed by a sickening burst of jittery energy. Definitely not my cup of tea.

Pretty cute seeing a bunch of straight edge Farkers talk about drugs.

FreakinB: vudukungfu: In before the "Syracuse is Upstate?" outrage.

I'm an downstater who starts thinking "upstate" somewhere around the Harriman exit off the Thruway, so maybe you need to take this with a grain of salt. But if there's anyone out there who's going to argue that Syracuse isn't upstate, that's just ridiculous.


No, Syracuse is not upstate. Anything remotely close to the Finger Lakes is considered central NY. Anything west of the Catskills and east of Rochester is central. That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.

/I've lived in western, central and upstate NY

I'm going with media scare campaign, as there was no evidence of bath salt use mentioned anywhere in the article, but they kept bringing them up. Then they laundry list the other "bath salt attacks" while pointing out that they were only "potentially" involving bath salts.


Half truth, half scare, like usual.

Synthetics and how bad a high they are for the desperate has been common knowledge for a while.

Everybody from the Viet Cong to the "My Daddy Ate My Eyes" guy have been combining mind-altering drugs with stimulants for decades, if not centuries, and doing horrifying damage to themselves or others as a result.

But one jerkass makes one joke about zombies, and suddenly... *sigh*

It's funny how the media latches on to new drugs. We saw the exact same stories about alcohol, marjuana, cocaine, meth, pcp, etc. It's always the same deal: "people going crazy doing [insert insane thing]."

I bet on any given day you could find people doing similar insane acts on other drugs than bath salts (or no drugs at all). It's just not reported as much because it's not trendy.

Do you actually believe that? PCP and meth are already more difficult to get than pot, yet people still go out of their way to get it. You think they'd stop once it becomes easier to get?

Following the Tuesday night incident, Munnsville mom Pamela McCarthy later died at a hospital after going into cardiac arrest from the effects of the Tasing, reported ABC affiliate WSYR-TV in Syracuse.

Oh yeah, the bath salt bender had nothing to do with the cardiac arrest, it was all the taser.

doglover: fjnorton: Can we just legalize good old pcp already? This shiat is getting out of control

I'd go with LSD personally.

PCP is almost as bad as this bath salts stuff.


Bath salts makes you lose friends due to alienating them.
PCP makes you lose friends because you actually ate them.
