“Bath Salts”

On the same subject, and after a number of posts here about the increasing use of the psychoactive drug “Bloom” in the archipelago, Maurice Reed thought it might be useful to replicate an article from WebMD that explains a little more about what is also referred to as “bath salts”:

These designer drugs came on the scene fairly recently and became popular fast. That may be because they were easy to get and used to be hard to detect in drug tests.

They’re highly addictive, and they come in a crystalline powder that users swallow, inhale, or inject. Despite their name, bath salts have nothing in common with products you can use for a soak in the tub.

What else they’re called: Plant FoodBloom, Cloud Nine, Ivory Wave, Lunar Wave, Scarface, Vanilla Sky, or White Lightning.

What type of drug is it? Bath salts contain manmade stimulants called cathinones, which are similar to amphetamines.

What are the effects? 
These stimulants increase levels of dopamine, a brain chemical that can create feelings of euphoria.

Some say the effects are similar to cocaine or methamphetamines. But they’re even more likely to cause serious health effects, including:

  • Violence
  • Paranoia
  • Agitation
  • Hallucinations
  • Psychosis
  • Racing heart
  • High blood pressure
  • Chest pain
  • Panic attacks
  • Dehydration
  • Kidney failure
  • Death
