Default Bath Salts -important info about dangerous new drug fad

I posted this on my local EMS website here in CT. I'm retired now, but the guys are now seeing this crap out there every day and it's dangerous as hell. I wanted to share this here, because it's out there, and I want people to know just what this crap can do to you. The story about the BMX kid really got me - It was pretty sad and even a seasoned guy like me had to think.
I know a lot of you guys are running into this stuff out there on the streets these days and I don't envy yous. West Haven PD here has managed to get most places to voluntarily pull this stuff from their shelves - SO KUDOS TO THE WHPD!!! For those of you who don't know what this stuff is, here's a little video for you to watch and learn from. This is some bad crap.

Stay Safe Out There....

Wow- scary stuff.
For all the stupid things I did in my youth, at least some of the current stupidity simply was not available and my mom told me one thing that stayed with me and protected me well:

If you use these so called "designer" drugs, you're putting your life in the hands of an amatuer chemist who does not love you.

I found what seems to be a pretty decent overview of these "bath salts" at WebMD

I've been seeing a lot of this 'activity'. Do the 'incense' that the smoke shops sale have the same effects? It's a educational question because it is available and 'new' in my area.

All I know is they recently outlawed the sale of bath salts in Ohio. Finally, a step in the right direction. Thanks for sharing!

Incense is bad too. I know my son used all this stuff along with the hard drugs. He'd use basically anything he could get his grubby paws on. I say let's hold a bond fire at all these shops and watch them go up in flames. I know it's a free country but this crap is killing our kids, old and young!!!

My man got out and was sent to rehab and this stuff was an alternate b/c it can not be traced in your system. He's totally different ever since and our lives are changed. He started to mistrust everything i did. Hurt my heart from that and physically. Thought and still thinks i've cheated on him and never have. I was hope the ideas or thought that made him this way get out of his system. We have been together for 21 years and it's over because of this stuff. I lost my best friend. i still pray and have hope that he''ll see that. More and more he says unpleasant things that make me think he's so convinced nothing can fix that. Prayers needed an appreciated!
