Where Can I Learn What Bath Salts Are? Are Bath Salts Dangerous?
What exactly are bath salts? Am I safe with trying bath salts? What are the effects of bath salts? Are bath salts dangerous?
Many people have questions about so-called “bath salts,” and we at Archstone Recovery Center can help with some answers. “Bath salts” is a street name for various designer drugs—drugs designed to circumvent federal drug control laws. Drugs are sometimes sold under misleading names in order to get away with selling illegal substances to consumers. For instance, methamphetamine and MDMA have been sold labelled as “bath salts” in order to get around laws.
In addition to the dangers associated with MDMA or methamphetamine, the term “bath salts” can be broad enough to encompass all kinds of dangerous compounds. If someone offers you bath salts, you can never really know what it is they’re offering you. Bath salts have been in the news lately in the story of Rudy Eugene, the “Miami Cannibal,” who police suspected had used bath salts before gnawing off the face of a homeless man, Ronald Poppo. It is not know exactly what motivated Eugene’s attack, but psychoactive drugs can change a person’s behavior in extreme and alarming ways. Eugene abandoned his vehicle, stripped naked, and wandered around before assaulting Poppo.
