Bath Salts Still Legal in Most States Despite Lethal Effects
With a growing number of individuals resorting to “bath salts” to become dangerously high, researchers and legislators are rushing to inform the public on its devastating side effects.
Bath salts are manmade substances made from mephedrone and methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MPDV); dangerous synthetic chemicals that cause hallucinations, paranoia and aggressive behavior upon their usage, whether they are snorted, smoked or injected.
Many hospitals have reported a high number of patients being admitted due to bath salt-related injuries and doctors warn that because the drug is widely available and affordable, they expect to the see the number of bath salt causalities significantly increase within the next few years.
And while it may take time for this potentially lethal drug to be banned by the Drug Enforcement Administration, legislators are fighting hard to place bath salts on the list of “schedule I substances” in order for bath salts to be formally recognized as a hard core, fatal drug that can be detrimental to its users.
