Synthetic Bath Salt Products Continue To Destroy Lives

Synthetic Bath Salt Products Continue To Destroy Lives drug rehabilitation and alcohol rehabilitation

If you know anyone that's using or abusing synthetic stimulant drugs like bath salts, please encourage them to seek help so they don't end up hospitalized or even worse, deceased. In July President Obama banned the sale and possession of various kinds of bath salt drugs but new ones continue to be marketed and easily obtained making it very difficult for law enforcement throughout the United States to keep up.


Bath salt products unfortunately can still be obtained on the internet as well and sadly they continue to get in the hands of young people and their lives are put on the line each and every time they use the drugs.

Bath salts are sold under a variety of different brand names as insect repellent or plant food which include:

  • Bliss
  • Blue Silk
  • Cloud Nine (cloud 9)
  • Drone
  • Energy-1
  • Ivory Wave
  • Lunar Wave
  • Meow Meow
  • Ocean Burst
  • Pure Ivory
  • Purple Wave
  • Red Dove
  • Snow Leopard
  • Stardust
  • Vanilla Sky
  • White Dove
  • White Knight
  • White Lightening
 

Bath Salt Products Produce A Dangerous High

Bath Salt products are obtained in powder form and young people use them in various ways to get high which include snorting, ingesting or injecting them into a vein. There's no way of knowing what the long term effects are, but we do know that the short term effects of synthetic Bath Salt products are extremely serious and often times, deadly. Some people, who have experienced paranoia while under the influence of synthetic bath salt products have either hurt themselves, injured others or have taken their own lives.

Synthetic drugs like bath salt products are dangerous and people who experiment with them don't realize how fast their life can change in a short period of time. Some people experience such intense paranoia and hallucinations the first time they use bath salts they vow to never use the drug again and are fortunate to have lived through the terrifying experience, but not everyone does.

Synthetic drugs like bath salts are unpredictable though, you never know if the drug you obtained will lead to lethal consequences when it's used. Just because a person didn't have an extremely bad experience in the past doesn't mean they won't the next time, that's why taking synthetic designer drugs are like playing Russian roulette with your own life. The consequences associated with synthetic bath salt use continue to increase such as "dangerous bacterial infections" associated with the use of "injected bath salts" in Maine according to bangordailynews.com.
