Who Needs Meth When You Have Bath Salts?

Last week I wrote a post on vodka eyeballing, a really stupid way to get drunk. I figured that would be my only entry on “alternative” methods of getting high. But then I read about the bath salts and I just couldn’t ignore it.

Some really desperate people have resorted to riding the “Ivory Wave” which is snorting, smoking, or injecting bath salts. This means you can take those lavender-scented crystals your girlfriend uses when she’s PMS-ing and get a meth-like high. WTF??

Look, people, stop treating your local Bath & Body Works like a crack-house. If you want to do drugs, then do some drugs! Shooting vodka into your eye or snorting “eucalyptus breeze” is not only pathetic, but a total cop-out. Yeah, you’ll never get arrested tripping off of bath salts, but isn’t the danger element part of the whole allure of getting high to begin with?

All I’m saying is I know the economy sucks, but can you just go back to snorting coke?

Thank you.

UPDATE: Hey nerdists,

Some of you are expressing concern that I am misrepresenting how people get high on bath salts. I never thought I’d ever be at the
center of a debate about something like this (I hope you’re proud, mom & dad!), but here I am. First of all, I am NOT a chemist. I interpreted the Washington Post article as the two chemicals mephedrone and methylenedioxypyrovalerone were derived from your mama’s generic bath salts. It was presented this way in other articles when I did more research.

Sorry for the confusion. At the end of the day, I aim to entertain here and not encourage ANYONE to snort name brand bath salts nor back alley bath salts. xo, anjeanette

  • People stop asking why anyone would snort Bath Salts….Nobody is snorting Bath Salts…Its Marketed AS bath salts. Or what ever else but its mdpv. mdpv is a drug, a sorry pathetic designer drug but Its A drug none the less.
    and hey, remember, Americans used to have coke and heroin in their cough syrups..amphetamines in their nasal sprays… and coca cola used to be made with cocaine paste…. so people please….Go home and rest your pussy and let the theory of darwin work itself out.

  • If the medical world would look more seriously at clinical depression and not give drugs like zoloft to patients which do absolutely nothing then maybe more people wouldnt look for alternatives to solve there own depression. I have been on every prescribed drug there are and nothing works. I have never tried the bath salts but have used cocaine and several different prescription pain pills. Funny how when im on these, mostly prescription pain narcotics i can lead a normal functioning life but without them zoloft and other drugs do nothing and i feel suicidal. All im saying is let grown people decide what is best for themselves because nobody knows u like u do. Whats the difference if i use something that makes me happy but may kill me or if i sit around hoping from one prescribed depression pill after another that a doctor has me try and does not work and i end up taking my own life. I am forty one years old and have been taking prescription pain pills in moderation for almost twenty years to treat a disorder that none of my doctors have not been able to address and im still here working 60 hours plus weeks with a nice home and a loving family so whats the problem. STOP GOVERNMENT CONTROL over lives that belong to u and i and not them.

  • I didn’t even need to read this and i can tell you the name is was way to get around laws. I did have a problem but it wasn’t with the baths salt, they suck honestly, the company put like 6 different chemicals called Research chemicals and sell them. These chems have actually been around on the new for sometime now. Well i found a love for MDPV one of the chems in them and in all serious, the baths salts were a good way of selling cut shit, and at $20 min fo .5g, no way, this stuff was on the from $10-15 a full gram, I always got 10grams for around $100 with shipping. Let me tell you it isn;t really so addicting, not like coke, the problem with it is that its way to good and you tell your self at like midnight you done and gonna sleep but und staying wide awake, that 10 gram would last me 1 monthish, but i didn’t do much sleeping, may 3-4 hours every thereed days and then the 3rd – 4th night id crash and start the net morning, but it was never like coke because thats makes you want this, comeing of it isn easy but staying off for long id not easy. I ca comment about about the son ne ing sick from them, and you need to lok hard those are signs of herion useage, these chemcals dont do that, but easy way to come off an upper is a donwner, dope. so look a tad hard, i spent a week in the hospitrtobut thats because of this but it wasn’t the drug that cause it is the lack of sleep. I wen t in after i pulled 8 paid awake, besides everyone always brings up the long term when i reality. who the fuck care, most doing these had drug issuers proir.

    Also FYI it is illegal federal no, but the replacement is out and doen’w even comare but is still priettey good, chem name i prefer is A-PVP and more replacement to come, in stores its glass or pip cleaner usually, stores its beter know nuw not total pure. So who rocks

  • as a recovering meth addict i find this disturbing? as a father of teenage girls i find this horrifying!! drug abuse stole 17 years of my life! i urge anyone who is thinking about using this crap to really look at the big picture. getting high for a nite, is it worth waking up in the loony bin after almost dying 17 years later?

  • hey devin i like ur post on this stuff… everything u said about marshall law, it all makes perfect sense…. the govt. is trying to keep as many of their “puppets” in office as they can to keep the things the way they want, when they want, and how they want it!! IT IS WRONG too! because as i said in my previous little rant, if the govt. would lighten up on the petty things, like the weed and the bath salts, and might as well throw in the K2… there could be so much more money spent on rebuilding our OWN COUNTRY instead of putting up the hundreds of billions and trillions of dollars that it takes to go storm another country, why not be a peace keeper in our own country… DO NOT get me wrong at all, i am a VERY PROUD AMERICAN!! i just dont see the need to send our men and women over sea to fight everybody else’s battles, especially when there is so much work needed right here on our home soil, let the Men and Women that fight for this country take down all these big time murderers, and put an end to the big gangs around these 50 states.. and the human trafficking, i bet there would be just as many people willing to serve here in their homelands knowing that their families are within their reach at all times… as it is that volunteer to go across sea’s… well im at the end of my LOL “buzz”, Lmfao so im done now.. GoOD nIGht world!!

  • When the Bath Salts kick started all those years ago, me and my group of fellow heads started buying that instead of goin and looking for meth, and running the risk of going to jail, where we would sit and take up even more of the tax payers money, as if the govt. doesnt already have enough plans for all of our hard earned money..i started using tranquility back when the salts first came out, and continued to use for more than 4 years… its easier to come off of than meth but everyone thats downing the “salts” if u stop and think about it if the govt. would chill with all the laws on these new drugs, stop trying to put a bann on everything that these chemist are putting out and it wont be to long til everyone in the govt. could be sitn a little higher on the hog than they already are there would be more money that could be put back into the community and local businesses?! i know instead of throwing all these laws around making it this country the Land of Prisons being filled with people that have never known anything other than watching their parents growing pot in their closets, or cooking the meth that they grew up watching their father cook, this country would be a lot better off… dont punish our generation because of the decisions that our forefathers made… if u stop and think about it, ‘Ol Ben Franklin made it mandatory for farmers to use a certain amount of there land for the growing of marijuana… and he also sat around drinking on liquor and beer while smoking on the piece pipe meeting with the men of his secret society.. aaahhh i grew up in the wrong times, i should have been around back when George Washington first made it possible for men to grow weed without worrying about the DEA coming in and uprooting their whole years crops, destroying their livelyhood, and putting them in jail.. once again, pointing right back to the govt. not understanding the kind of money that could be made right here in our OWN COUNTRY!! PLEASE PEOPLE, GET MEN AND WOMEN INTO CONGRESS THAT HAVE BEEN ON OUR END OF THINGS!!
    I have No Felonies and hope to keep it that way… so if u all ever want somebody to run for congress or some kind of person who can have and effect on these laws, Pick ME!! thanks for reading this little rant and rave on the good effects that these so called “nasty new synthetic drugs” could have on not only the tax payers pocket, but the Whole Country!!

    P.S. anyone in the Common Wealth of Virginia that agrees that Marijuana should be legalized for medical purposes hit me up, im trying to get a petition started to help this along!!

  • I have an ex that has been struggling with Drug Addiction for some time and just found “Bath Salts”. Today she showed me what it was and had the shakes real bad. I believe after reading everyone’s experience: she is reacting because of her long term abuse. Ive never seen her that bad. We are at the end of the road with her and only time will tell. I know that she’s combining whatever she can find. Because its cheaper – she’s hitting it hard! Its not safe by any means! I’m seeing first hand whats it’s doing with other drugs.

  • Jails, institutions and death. Nothing more when you do drugs. You can rationalize all this crap s you want, you’ll be located in one of the 3. Quit B.S’n with all these posts!

  • 25 year old son has been taking them and his health is completely ruined. Got him out of the hospital and all he does is sleeps and throws up. Fearful it is permenant brain damage……May end up in a home fopr the rest of his life……very poor decision to use this crap.

  • Our own government (DEA) and their war on drugs!! what war you mean the one where we are rebuilding after we destroyed it! Hey guess what sheeple poppyseeds are at a all time high well maybe not lately but hey they discovered new ways to make meth. I hate drugs but worse I hate stupid people. and the girl who’s brother went to jail for the bath salt. You spelt retarded wrong and he went to jail for flipping out! Go snort a Zoloft or obtain a eating disorder..everyone who is talking shit on drugs I gurantee has a crutch in their live rather it be medications or a false profit. I take Xanax because I want to hit people for being stupid and judgemental most of all nieve!! Were on the edge of a total recession and oh yeah Marshall Law and New World Order.

  • whatever happened to smoking a joint to get high, now kids are going for the bath salts? well to be perfectly honest i would much rather catch my kid snorting bath salts than huffing his shit vapors…damn kids.

  • I was doing bath salts before it was cool. My favorite way to use is the urethral suppository method. First, you cook the salts in a bath of aromatic hydrocarbons (preferably benzene) with petroleum jelly. Be sure to mix vigorously in a polystyrene container as close as possible to open flames, such as a fireplace or gas stove range. Don’t forget to use latex gloves. Eye-goggles are optional. Reduce the concoction to a thick gelatinous state. With your hands, mold the gel into an oval capsule shape for easy insertion, after freezing. Enjoy!

  • Don’t any of your people get it? Us normal people live good lives and stay healthy by NOT doing all this junk drug stuff. If you need drugs to feel “happy”, you really need to examine your life and figure out what you are missing. You risk you life and/or your sanity for what?

  • And dont everyone flame me and say im advocating drug use as im clearly not i Just recognize that they are here to stay and since they are such a prevalent problem I think its high time we accepted it and made them less dangerous with fewer side effects and better effects and make it cheap and easily obtained like alcohol please leave the chemists alone and let them do what needs to be done as now one else seems to have a better notion …….and oh yeah bath salts are by far not that drug im talking about as of yet they are entirely too strong in that concentrated form people are too stupid to be careful with this shit it needs to be regulated better in some way to keep it alive for testing and research purposes….

  • Ok from what I have seen of this so far is that its a new recreational drug that the chemists are trying to make better and unfortunately since they cant test people legally on this shit then they have to put it out as is which is unsafe but from my experience newer formulas are alot better with fewer side affects…instead of making these things illegal off the bat we should be open about them and test them responsibly under controlled situations not off the cuff quick and dirty so to speak ….People will always try to get high in some way shape or form its human nature lets not leave all the junkies high and dry lets take away the side effects that make them junkies by testing and research in the OPEN and unfortunately right now with the case by case legality thing that’s going on bath salts are the closest thing we have as they keep changing and trying to improve the formula to keep it legal ……now if we could just educate people in how potent these can be and keep it away from teenagers things could evolve into somwthing better than alcohol thats for sure …..We really need a better socially accepted drug its ancient ad just as unhealthyi f not more so than anything else out there …….

  • stupid ass, do you homework. they have a drug that is legal to own. but u still cant sell it. hens they call it bath salt. you killing people cause u are a retard. DO YOUR HOMEWORK>

  • Just thought some of you morons who might try this should read this.

    From ksla news:
    LSUHSC: “Bath Salts” is new source of flesh-eating infection

    A study led by Russell R. Russo, MD, a third-year Orthopaedic Surgery resident at LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans School of Medicine, has identified a new source of life-threatening necrotizing fasciitis – “bath salts.”

    The study, describing the first known case of necrotizing fasciitis from an intramuscular injection of the street drug known as “bath salts,” is published in the January 2012 issue of Orthopedics, now available online.

    Necrotizing fasciitis is an orthopedic emergency. The ability to quickly and accurately diagnose this rapidly spreading disease can save a patient’s life and limb. However, the diagnosis is complex because necrotizing fasciitis usually manifests as a less severe cellulitis or abscess while the majority of the damage rages beneath the surface of the skin. Deep muscular necrosis is often masked by a normal-looking overlying tissue bed. The potential causes and vectors, or carriers, continually change.

    “As ‘bath salts’ gain popularity, medical centers of all disciplines must be prepared to identify not only the signs of intoxication, but the potential side effects including deadly necrotizing fasciitis,” notes Dr. Russo.

    Dr. Russo and his colleagues treated a 34-year-old woman who presented with forearm pain and redness that began after she attended a party. She did not report other symptoms, but there was also a small red puncture wound on her arm.

    Treatment for cellulitis with broad-spectrum IV antibiotics dramatically reduced the symptoms, but lingering pain at the injection site led to an ultrasound. She then admitted that she had injected “bath salts” two days before she developed symptoms.

    When the patient was reexamined, she had rapidly progressing redness, skin sloughing, and drainage. Necrotizing fasciitis was suspected and she immediately underwent emergent surgical debridement and exploration, and more antibiotics were added.

    The infection moved so fast that pink, healthy tissue was literally dying before the surgeons’ eyes. They had to keep removing tissue until they reached clear margins of healthy tissue to stop the progression of disease. By the time they were finished, the patient’s arm, shoulder, and collarbone had to be amputated, and a radical mastectomy performed.

    The patient survived and subsequently underwent skin grafting and rehabilitation. Analysis revealed bacterial isolates including alphahemolytic Streptococcus, Streptococcus viridans, Peptostreptococcus micros, Gemella morbillorum, and Actinomyces odontolyticus.

    The researchers note these infections are usually associated with crush traumas and farm injuries, but now physicians must also be prepared and vigilant when presented with a cellulitic patient who has a history of needle use. Even patients with their own clean needles are not immune, as evident in a report of an asthmatic patient who developed necrotizing fasciitis from an injection of subcutaneous epinephrine.

    “Despite the drug’s legal status, it must be treated as illicit, and one must be suspicious when examining a patient with this clinical history because the diagnosis of flesh-eating bacteria can masquerade as abscesses and cellulitis,” says Dr. Russo.

    Necrotizing fasciitis has a rapid time-line to tissue destruction and loss of life. A 1995 study found the survival rate of those diagnosed with necrotizing fasciitis to be as low as 50%. However, wide ranges of death exist depending on a multitude of factors.

    Treatment for this virulent disease remains a swift diagnosis with extensive surgical debridement to obtain complete control of the organism and prevent death. However, the authors maintain, the best treatment is prevention with public, street-based education and early detection.

    “The recent emerging popularity of this highly obtainable, injectable substance may lead to an increase in cases of necrotizing fasciitis,” concludes Dr. Russo, “and surgeons must be ready to diagnose and perform extensive debridements in association with general surgeons in some instances to save limbs, preserve function, and prevent death.”

    The study team included Dr. Noah Marks, Dr. Katy Morris, and Associate Professor Dr. Ronald Rooney, in the LSUHSC New Orleans Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, as well as Drs. Heather King, and Angelle Gelvin, MD in the LSUHSC New Orleans Department of Surgery.

  • 7 days with no sleep will kill you how are u still alive on 13? I enjoy this drug helped me quit drinking,gave me energy ,concentration, love, happiness, not so shy…like adderall

  • Long term effects, people. Long term. I hear people that say “Yeah, I do these drugs every day, I’m fine”. I’ll come see you in 5 years, let me know how you’re doing.

    Basically, how these synthetic drugs work is that it only triggers half the dopamine receptors in your brain, leading to a chemical imbalance, which leads to severe depression. A couple friends of friends have offed themselves because of too much synthetic marijuana, and one of my closest friends landed himself in the hospital trying to catch a buzz off this bath salt shit.

    If you’re going to do drugs, do the god damn drug. If you’re going to do meth, do meth. This other shit isn’t any better for you…

  • First of all people, proper English. Second, I have been using Bath Salts, the IV way, for 10 months now, sometimes 2-3 jars a day. It does not make me crazy or want to get naked or kill. I just want to go out and have fun with my friends. I do it before during and after work. I pretty much do it all day. I have been up for 13 days as of this post. This is because of the drug, I am not denying that. But I COULD lay down and go 2 sleep if I wanted 2. I eat regularly, even when on it. It is legal meth, but alot cleaner. I think that the people that are flipping out on it already had some sort of chemical in-balance and it just pushed it further. I am not proud to say this, but I have run every drug there is and by far Bath Salts is (in my opinion) the safest bet. I mean statistics do not lie. If a million people are doing BS and only 20,000 are getting sick or dieing. Now take the FACT that out of a million meth users 200,000 die a year. Well, I hate to say this but, if people are going to do something bad for them, then why not go with the safer bet? I know a lot of you all will not and do not agree with me. And for that I am sorry. I like the way it feels, I’m happy, no bad thoughts.

  • I have done bath salts in the past, and for anybody that think they are harmless or not a big deal. You are seriously mistaken! This drug caused me to have a great high while i was up, but also made me lose two months of my life. I was supposed to start my senior year in August but never made it after the first week. I was withdrawn from school because of the after effects of this drug not only does it make you paranoid and hallucinate but it makes you turn against anyone who is not on the drug. I took all my anger out on my family and I regret saying everything I did. I lost count of the days over those two months because I would stay up for three or four days at a time before I could sleep again. This drug is just as strong as meth. It is a horrible thing to do and also to see someone else do. I have clean for almost 3 months now (longer than I was even on the drug) and I am still experiencing side effects. I still hallucinate some times and it is scary! Please if anyone is considering doing bath salts, think twice! and see what its really like from other people who have nothing left because of this drug. I lost my senior year! who wants to lose the most important year of your life? I know I didn’t and I truly regret what I did. Please, stay away from this drug and anyone who is on it needs to be taken to rehab!

  • hi, personal experience is… not happy with the comedown… but just thought i would add that it is possible but it takes a LOT of self control. :D. my girl has been tripping out on me for acting crazy all day… lol. but she has saw how i am acting and decided not to try it at all!! which i would recommend to anyone that has issues with drugs period (because of the crazy comedown) i took my first bump last night around this time… and now i have to stop… will power trumps all! if you have enough that is… very similar high to cocaine/meth mixed, but comedown is like 10x worse then cocaine AT FIRST! after a few hours it fades and sleep is achievable :D dont freak yourselves out.. HOSPITAL?? seriously? i dont think that is necessary…. just dont do it all :D little trick of the mind i have found out. if you can stop while you still have some then youre comedown will always be easier.

    -hope that helps :D

  • You know as an ex meth addict herion addict I see every day some new way for people to get high and yes it is dangerous but meth and h are just as dangerous. As for me I will be ordering some of these”bath salts” in order to get the rush and adrenaline junkie like me needs but I would never have to stoop to buying these salts or make kitchen crank from nasal sprays if the shot was just legal and for parents if your child is under 18 and they are useing this then blame yourself for not paying enough attention and if there over 18 it’s there fault not the maker of the product fucking retards

  • Just had to baker act my daughter for bath salts….she is 20 years old. She has been tripping hard for a few days. I had not idea she was doing this stuff till I was informed and found the small baggies and cut straws in her room…She has lost so much weight and does not look well at all…Bath salts are a nightmare…

  • Hi, I’m erin I’m 18 and let me tell you “bath salts” are extremely crazy. I’ve more then experienced with other drugs. I was addicted to herion, mainly smoking then turned iv user. Anyway I have done cocaine and meth, bath salts are more of an intense but not as long high compared to eaither. Honestly I just tried this bullshit being as what most of you would call a “druggie” I like to get high. And I figured what the hell I’ve done meth I know what the come down like that is off of how can this shit be different. The come down is quite similar. But the high for me,(bathsalts) I was more parinoid, anxious and it gave me really bad shakes. I only did one line off this stuff and shared some with a friend. And he kept buggin out asking for more. This shit is no joke. Just like I wouldn’t recommend herion I ertantly do not reccomd legal meth. At first your fine zoomin around liin it up but idk it’s no good. I did my last line at 8 something last night it’s not 12pm I maybe got 2 hours of sleep if that.

  • Hi there,
    My name is Stefanie and I work with a national daytime talk show in NYC. We are taping a show on Thursday, December 8th and one of the things we will be discussing is bath salts. I am looking for teens and 20 something year-olds to talk about bath salts…why people are doing them? experiences with them, etc. If any of you are interested please email me ASAP at TVProducer2012 AT yahoo DOT com

    Thanks so much!

  • Haha, I love it J, just watch your sentence structure before flaming a mispelled word, and if we are informing these poor souls who are apparently more gullible than anyone putting mephedrone in the tub and bath salts up their nose, I’ll add that it most certainly is salt. Hydrochloric salt or something close to that, (phonetically speaking). That’s not important however, the issue is your determined little fuck ups for children are blowing rails (snorting fat lines), or even smaller counterparts. I don’t know how you do it in your multi-million dollar community, but the folks ending up in the hospital, as I was just telling a concerned friend, are idiots who think it’s coke. If you don’t know what you’ve got you shouldn’t do it, it could be fuckin heroin for all you know, and the horse comes in that color. I can’t speak for J, but round these parts, we hit the end of a pencap, as little as 5 millis to no more than 20. That’s from a 500 milli bag. Prohibition kills education, and no education kills retards. I am curious how many alcohol poisonings you regularly see compared to self admittance from salts (because these bitches are putting themselves in, where they are given all sorts of “medical” chemicals. A fairly straight rule to follow is don’t mix shit with the Mephedrone, one good example I know of is anti-depressents. I’d follow up some medical malpractice suits, for treating something they know nothing about, and refuse to research.

  • like dude said its not F’ing salt…really!!Hell half of the people on here can’t even spell words right!like retarted…(hint its got a “D” in there somewheres there hillbilly not a “T”)just playing with ya dont get bent.come on now it takes like 10 seconds to proof read your crap….or did you!?? retart what are u smoking tarts again stop thats bad for you!!!what is that from a sweet tart or herion never tried thank you or extascy LMAO!!theres others but anyhow.””” 1 “”” thing!!! CLEAR NOW PEOPLE!!! the people that are doing all this dumb shit, had 10 wires crossed before they did the retarded thing that the devil and the”MEPHEDRONE” (supposidley) made them do!! their already tweaked in the head to begin with!i have sniffed it for the last 5 months about every other day or more. i am a pretty successful person,i have a normal descent life,live in a multimillion dollar neighborhood, i still have a good job and not i’m not going nowhere like my job and i do it very well “ask my boss” i keep getting raises!!””” 1″”” i never think of killing people or myself,i keep my clothes on and i don’t see dead people!!LMAO! but these retards “already” or that”so called” normal dork on zoloft or sum crazy pill,already have something wrong with them to begin with so i think the container should say not for retards or zoloft users,or whatever else there is for whackey peeps that say “i cant cope with the world they make me mad ,or sad,or too glad” or watever they use to scam that drug but thats ok !!???yeh ok…..every drug known to man has serious side effects”hmmm alcohol yeh ok its”legal”so millions go out and drink and kill thousands or millions who knows!? but lets make millions of gallons more every day,its ok tho gov’t can make there piece and thats how it rolls. i dont shoot it,smoke with a lil weed from time to time but it is by far better, like 1000 times better, than cocaine or meth coming off of,tried them both a few times or so, there is sumthing that might make ya want to shoot something or somebody so do a little research sh!t b4 u go and act like a retarts!!lol jus hadda do it, buh by to the grammer and peace out to every1 i pissed off or will piss off by this blog …..solllwwwwyyyy… not…… kiss my a$$ all u haters tell yur tarded kids not to do it cause its makes the dumber=stupider!!! and the stupid 1s= retarded…..and well the retarded well i guess cannibal killers or just plain killers!!! Later to all da haters, ! ?!?!?!?!?!

  • Seriously people? It’s not really bath salts that they’re snorting or however its being administered, its mephedrone, and is labeled as bath salts and plant food for legal marketing purposes. I’ve used on several occasions, picked up from our local sex/headshop not bed bath n beyond. You people are ignorant. By no means am I encouraging anyone to try it I just don’t want some teen consuming their mothers “real” bath salts she has under her sink.

  • A firend of ours snorted Bath Salt thinking it was cocaine and has been on a trip for 4 days now and is in ICU at the hospital… She still has not come down from her hight and they are scared to think that she may not. They say that they have cures to stop the highs of coke, meth, heroine, etc… Bur nothing for Bath salt… It’s just something that has to run it’s course and eventually drop the high, but it may not. It’s really scary and idk why anyone would ever consider putting a bath product in their body!! I mean i know it smells good, but really??

  • I am a registered nurse in an ICU, and just got off my shift. My patient has been fighting for his life for several days now, and he had no more fight left in him tonite. I think people need to know how deadly this synthetic drug is. It can cause strokes, brain infections, heart problems (like things growing on your heart valves), and obviously death. I take care of patients all the time that do not realizing shooting anything into their veins “will actually do anything”. IV drug abusers have to realize they are not only shooting up the drug of choice (IF it is the drug and not a cheaper imposter drug) , they are also shooting up whatever bacteria is on their skin/needle/drug. So please people, be informed of what your doing to your bodies…. Kids are not suppose to die before their parents.

  • when i first searched comming off of bathsalts, this web site appeared.! and the first sentence i read said, no you wont get arrested for consuming bath salts!!! my brother, he was hospitalized this morning, due to bath salts. he went completely crazy, fliped ever piece of furniture in his bedroom…he was then arrested and placed in a juvenille detention center!! which is where he will stay!!! this stuff is VERY dangerous, and VERY scary!!! and anyone who is going to do it, just know that people have commited murder while on this drug, and have no clue they did it. it is the most retarted thing i have ever heard anyone doing!!!!! I am appauled at the way teens are getting their highs these days!!!!

  • Well I’m learning more about this as I go along. I just brought someone home from the hospital again!!!! His family is doing this crap and yes children live there. He denies it and they can’t prove it so he walks out every time but almost died this time shooting it!!!! I’m sick of people making it out that it’s okay to take this S**t! Sure your up for awhile but coming down is terrible. You have to buy more so that you can avoid coming down. He talks so fast and his eyes are crazy. He doesn’t speak clearly and his mind is constantly racing on thoughts. His anxiety and suicide/depression is worse. The police pick him up out on the street, no clothes, no shoes because he’s hot/ sweats all the time. This last time they found him in the backyard in a Thunderstorm naked and an ambulance was called!!! I know he’s not going to make it and his family is part of it. It’s killing me to watch this, So now what????? I hope the people selling this gets what they deserve if they continue. Maybe their children will start consuming it!!!!!

  • i laugh at all u guys, in mild amounts daily this drug is almost harmless, if u have an addictive personality tho dont try it, and just limit urself its effective for school and work but tolerances do rise extremely quick

  • I just wrote a couple pages on how everyone here is bad mouthing the bath-salts. Let’s get this clear people have died off of 1 line of cocaine and thousands have become addicted to cocaine. I personally say from my experiences with all the stuff I’ve done in my 15 years of testing different types of illegal drugs until they came out with the legal stuff. Yea not the greatest choices I have ever done but then again most of everyone posting on this page is most likely overweight or eating fast foods. I’m just going to let all of you know it is all in the person taking the stuff, because not everyone is the same way. The only symptoms I’ve experienced with these so called highly deadly & addictive bath-salts is the urge to start a company doing what I love to do, I’ve also been thinking of going back to school to get my GED. No I didn’t get my highschool diploma but I was kicked out of highschool by my stepmom who thought I failed all my classes because she found out I was smoking pot and she didnt even give me the chance to show her my final report card with a 3.9 GPA with 26 credits in the 11th grade. I got of track and don’t feel like deleting that and the other experiences I’ve had with bath-salts is greater sex with my spouse because the energy it gives me, I’ve gotten cotton mouth but so does everyone who smokes pot. The 3rd symptom I’ve had was staying up for 3 days at a time the first time I did it I didn’t know how I would react on the stuff so I did more then I should’ve and that was first and last time I took that much in 1 night, but I also had a recent tragedy that happened to a great friend of mine who was put in icu because of a motorcycle accident. No this bath-salt did not want my spouse and I do suicidal things or even think about it. The only thing we did was stay awake and think of people we know that would be able to help set up fundraisers and think of ways for us to make money to help donate to him so he and his wife could afford the surgery. So like I said it’s all within the person themselves that will have horrible or great experiences as long as you have self-control over what you do and how much you do. So saying all of this I’m done with all of this online reading stuff I’d rather just ask my brother who’s older and reads all the books about the drugs themselves instead of reading online stories or watching tv to get their information on new drugs. So dueces to all of y’all poor saps who would rather read stories online about bath-salts and other drugs. Instead govto your local library and read a book about what you seek. Or be a lazy fatass and continue to watch tv or read online.

  • DO NOT DO IT , veeerrryyyyyyy adictive my third week and like no sleep with i would of never did it i ened up in a stand off with the cops and fire department i was guunna jump off a moutian and then ended up in the hospital but no arrest and the comedown is AWFULLLLLLLLLLL this is a REAL drug it should be BANNED in EVERYWAY i might end up in rehab for it long story short

  • are you freaking retarded it not the same thing u put in the bath it a chemical simliar to meth it not bath salts its just a little name they call them what a retard i cant belive u wrote a article on something and u didnt know the facts ….ITS NOT FOR THE BATH ITS A DIFFERENT THING DUMBY

  • I’ve read all your stories and I can see where most are coming from, experience. The reason that most people use products like these and spice are because they get drugtest. I bought some earlier and I am very disappointed. I’ve been Twacked the fuck out on meth for a hot minute now n this is garbage. As far as the come downs it can’t be that bad because if you’ve used real drugs that this bath salt is said to take place of then you can handle staying up for days looking like you got run over by a bus. As far as these peeps that say that it’s bad and should b outlawed, but are the “normal people” in society, get the fuck off the gas. You can’t have shit legal then make it illegal and expect it to disappear, it only makes the issue worse. People like you are why the government is fucked and retarded like it is today. If it’s so bad then go pull it off the shelves your damnself. Didn’t work? O cuz your opinion still doesn’t matter. Fucking retards!

  • The last part wasz suppose ta say the comedown sucks so yu keep doinq it impulsivley till itsz gone cusz yu wanna feel better; but yu know what to expect in a couple daysz which fuckin sucksz* haha kinda didn’t make sence the first time buut I’m hiqh on this shit soo now yu see it makes yu stupid as fk too haha oooh and for some reason I’m continuisly burping and it turns into gags another thinq to look forward to on the comedown haha DON’T DO THIS SHIT

    P.s. I’m actually a really good speller when I’m sober haha fuck balt saltsz!!!
