Shryke: I, for one, am just glad we've finally balanced out the drug world so we don't have to describe every god damned drug as "sweet". We can finally use "savory", without suffering linguistic embarrassment.
Baelz: Meridian isn't a small town. It's a suburb of Boise.Sucks that this kind of crap is coming here. One thing about doing this crap in Idaho will end up with is someone getting shot. We can openly carry on our hips handguns here. So get high on bath salts and rampage the wrong person and you're done, and that is highly likely here.
skinink: "We are trying to link him with another crime where we believe a bicyclist was battered," Basterrechea said."A bath salt battered bicyclist doesn't sound too tasty.
ReverendJimBobHammer: As a reformed drunk and addict I can tell you that when I was using if someone told me that a pill would make me feel worse than I felt now I'd ask if I could have two. When you're an addict you just want to feel different to take your mind off your miserable life, it didn't matter if the drug made me feel better or worse just so long as it made me feel different.
SordidEuphemism: Huh. No mugshot here, and I don't use adblock at the office, so...
Kahabut: MrSplifferton: And you can buy this stuff at a tobacco shop yet weed is a schedule 1 drug...What? You buy bath salts at a tobacco shop? Where the fark do you live? Trailer park alley?
khyberkitsune: /Meridian//Ada countyFarking Mississippi.
Colin Coward: How old was he? The article didn't say.
The One True TheDavid: So tell me, how does it feel to be a failure as a pathetic loser?
Sofa King Smart: am I the only one picturing something like this in the police report. Family Circus.
A Terrible Human: Mitrovarr: How much do you want to bet this guy wasn't on bath salts at all? It's becoming the go-to boogeyman whenever someone does something batshiat, but like the face-eating guy, I bet they'll find he wasn't on them at all.Ah but do we really know? A ton of research chemicals aren't picked up by normal drug tests.Easy Reader: Some of those copbath salt videos are pretty funny/sad. Some dude flopping around like a fish making a lot of noises is fairly amusing if you can give yourself permission to laugh at it.I'm going to need those links.
99.998er: I guess I am a weirdo, but I think it would have been fun to watch the bath salt guy take off with the guy in the wheelchair.
TuteTibiImperes: Why do people use bath salts? I mean, I can understand other drugs that tend to have a calming/euphoric effect like marijuana or opiates, or psychedelics/hallucinogens that open your mind and allow you to see the world different, and though they don't appeal to me at all, I can see why some people could get behind things like meth or cocaine that give you that 'alpha dog king of the world tons of energy' effect.From what I've heard though bath salts just make you feel jittery, anxious, nervous, paranoid, and angry, and there's plenty of evidence that they can lead you to do crazy things, what's the appeal?
Coconice: I do wonder how these salts make you feel or what the make you think.I can see the reason for using most altering substances, but this is one I just don't get.
