What Are "Bath Salts"?
Bath Salts is a new drug that has become increasingly popular and has proven extremely dangerous. Please note that we are not talking about the same bath salts we use in our bath. These innocent-looking little packets of powder, also known as Vanilla Sky, White Knight, Ivory Wave or Hurricane Charlie, are similar to Cocaine. The substance is still legal for sale in the United States, and, in fact, describing the drug as Bath Salts is a subtle way of getting around substance abuse laws. Fortunately many states are taking action and adding Bath Salts to the list of illegal substances.
The Dangers and Symptoms of Bath Salts Abuse
What makes this substance so dangerous is a high potential for abuse and mentally and physically damaging side effects. Sadly, Bath Salts abuse has hit epidemic proportions. Hospital workers report the use of the salts is spreading fast, and the number of users reacting in a horrific manner to Bath Salt chemicals has increased at an alarming rate. This issue is not going to fade away anytime soon.
Bath Salts can be smoked, snorted, injected with a needle or mixed into an alcoholic beverage or food. This substance belongs to a class of drugs called “designer drugs,” due to the fact that there are many different ways and combinations to create this substance.
Concentrated Bath Salt products are readily available online or can be easily found at different stores, gas stations and truck stops. Currently, the law in many states does not prohibit the new substances from appearing in mini-marts around the country.
Users have reported that the “high” caused by Bath Salt drugs is so intense that they cannot stop using them. It is impossible to suppress the cravings, and they just want to go out and get more no matter the consequences, and the consequences can be deadly.
Bath Salts are known to produce extreme psychosis, and eventually lead to emergency hospitalizations and even suicides. The effects of Bath Salts abuse are extremely dangerous and long-lasting. Some users have committed horrible acts of violence, believing that demons or aliens were out to get them. Although this new drug hasn't been researched properly, it appears adverse effects can cause permanent damage. Some of the most profound side effects from large overdoses include:
- Kidney failure
- Chest pains
- Muscle damage
- Suicidal thoughts
- Uncontrolled violent behavior
- And other disturbing symptoms
