Bath Salts: new designer drug that makes people crazy

Killer Drug Blamed In Deaths

 Killer Drug Sold Over The Counter

By Dock Walls, @dockwalls

More and more often, people high on “Bath Salts” are becoming violent and engaging in psychotic behavior. Teens high on this uncontrolled substance have killed their parents, neighbors and even their neighbors’ goats. Now, the President of Miami’s Fraternal Order of Police has suggested the Apocalyptic Cannibal, shot and killed by police on Saturday, was high on Bath Salts. From last year to this one, we’ve witnessed a steady increase in violent activity and anti-social behavior engaged in by people high on this fast-moving designer drug.

The name “Bath Salts” is a deceptive term that masks the true purpose of this chemically-engineered, mind-altering agent. This dangerous drug, freely sold over-the-counter, is listed on Schedule 1 of the Controlled Substances Activities. It is not some aromatic additive to heighten your bath experience. Bath Salts are intended to be eaten, inhaled or injected into the veins.

The Drug Enforcement Administration has labeled Bath Salts the “designer drug of the phenethylamine class The active ingredient in Bath Salts is methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV).

When MDPV enters the brain, it causes feelings of euphoria, hallucinations and increased sensory awareness. In addition to the psychosomatic problems that result from use of any hallucinogenic, MDPV can cause physical problems, which include increased heart rate, high temperature and high blood pressure. This dangerous drug can lead to heart attacks, poisoning and even death.
