Quit taking these bullshiat bathtub chemicals and just drink a beer or smoke a joint or at least something with a significant history of relatively safe use.

I hear people see crazy shiat while they are dying, but that doesn't really make dying recreational.

/stick with the weed kids, real weed, not grass clippings sprayed with chems.

Your first problem with bath salts is, you have no way of knowing what the ingredients are. Several different compounds are sold under this name.

Second, you have no way of knowing the purity, so it is impossible to calculate a safe dose.

Third, you don't know what impurities you are dealing with, or how those impurities may effect you.

Fourth, the long term effects of the drug have not been studied, and are not known. So far as I know, no responsible research is even underway.

That means, if you are f'ing with bath salts, you are taking more of a risk than you should take, or need to take, for the pleasure in question. And if you screw up, the medics might or might not know what to do about it.

Government propaganda is full of lies and unproven assumptions, but the bottom line truth is: bath salts are not advisable.

Smoke weed and drink beer, the results are known.

There is no epidemic, and nearly every article you read about it was quietly corrected with "Bath salts were not involved" weeks later. It was the Jenkem of 2012.

That said, don't smoke weird shiat you can buy at the gas station.

Headline: "The Navy's Anti-Bath Salts Video Is Even More Ridiculous Than You'd Think"

Reality: The video is a lot less ridiculous than you'd think, if you've seen past Navy general military training videos.  Think of corporate training videos, without the threat of losing one's job over lack of talent.

Looks like something the Navy will show during basic training and mandatory formations.

Reefer Madness was funny because pot's not that bad or even close to how it was depicted in the movie.

Bath Salts aren't good and have no redeeming social value, IMHO.

I would hope professors at a university would know what they're talking about.

frepnog: the amount of bath salts that the average person might consume is pretty much about as dangerous as taking a lortab, smoking a pack of cigarettes or drinking a redbull...



What are the recreational effects of bath salt? From what Ive gathered, it is similar to meth or coke. Another fark story had people talking about staying up nights without sleep and such. Is this accurate? What are the positive and negative effects (i.e. meth is initially euphoric but has a horrendous comedown that last for hours)?

I dont want my only source to be media hype. I want to know how this drug actually affects the user.

Er... except marijuana doesn't, y'know, have an apparent ability to cause people to EAT PEOPLE'S FACES?

Comparing this to Reefer Madness is about as hyperbolic as Reefer Madness was.

'Bath Salts' are any of a variety of weird(ish) stimulants. The reality is that most of them were created in a lab and tested on animals, but nobody has much idea if they're safe for humans. Things like MDPV, MDPPP and variants of those.

In the interests of harm reduction - when dealing with weird stims and synthetic cannabinoids and all the other "research chemicals", don't buy them from the gas station! Buy from someone who will sell you a marked substance, not a blend of unknowns with a trade name, read about this substance, read about what people take that doesn't get them put in hospital, get a milligram scale and measure out the dose accurately. Don't re-dose. Don't overdose. Don't be afraid to call an ambulance - even with illegal substances it's better to get a record than to get dead. People do use these things without going crazy, but really you're better off not doing it.


That all said the video was hilarious. The guy would have been valium'd out the wazoo as soon as he was taken into treatment, and would have woken up a couple of days later wondering what happened.

Smackledorfer: frepnog: truth is that they really aren't all that dangerous

Any citation? There is no reason to assume by default that smoking unknown chemicals made as cheaply as possible by a seller who is in it for the short term anyways is going to be anything but bad for you.


the amount of bath salts that the average person might consume is pretty much about as dangerous as taking a lortab, smoking a pack of cigarettes or drinking a redbull. any of those things might kill you.

the media frenzy is just that about bath salts - a frenzy designed to spread fear, uncertainty and doubt because the moral majority is scared to death that someone might get high.

I am not saying they are SAFE. but what really is? alcohol is certainly not "safe". Neither is morphine. Anything you do in that area is a calculated risk.

so snort some bath salts if you want. sure, you might die, but you might die from drinking a couple redbull or by taking some Excedrin migraine with some allergy meds.

you probly won't die.

There's been very little research done on the compounds commonly found in bath salts. I don't know how some of you have decided that they are in fact really bad and that this isn't just your usual anti drug propaganda.

Maybe it is a dangerous drug. However I'm a bit skeptical considering this whole bath salt danger craze started with the face eater, and we all know how that turned out.
