It is hard to watch the news or access news online without some new information on the drug bath salts. A search on Google for “bath salts drug” produces some pretty startling headlines. “Flesh Eating Zombies”, “Killer drug” “Call to make bath salts illegal”
So What is Bath Salts a lethal drug with a very innocent name seems to describe it very well. This video describes the chemical side of the drug.
So should the drug be banned?. It may help stop its growth but sadly there is always somebody willing to try the “new high” they will obtain it illegally if that is what it takes. It certainly seems that the use of this drug also called “Ivory Wave,” “Purple Wave,” Vanilla Sky,” and “Bliss” is on the rise. The really scary thing is that although there is some information on the ingredients used nobody knows for sure as the patient has often ingested the drug and its is not available for testing when medical professionals get involved. It certainly seems that given the threat to innocent victims like the homeless man in Miami who had his face eaten off by a bath salts user on a high that something else needs to be done to protect the public from people on this drug who become killers.
