Beware the Bath Salts

Law Offices of William W. Bruzzo

A recent trend with bath salts has some officials worried. The danger is in the effects the chemicals have on the senses. The ingredients affect the psychological state creating hallucinations and mental break downs like an LSD trip. The addictive tendencies are similar to crack. The Drug Enforcement Administration explained that the chemical stimulants create the same effects as cocaine and amphetamines. The trend is seen mostly in the Southern states but has created a nation wide concern. A few cases have been reported in California and poison control centers have seen an increase in calls regarding these salts. The concern is that people have become seriously ill. Severe hallucinations and psychotic breaks can last for more than 72 hours, and can have permanent mental consequences.

According to the director of the California’s poison control system, there were six cases reported in this state. In one of the six cases the person had to be treated for acute psychosis. These products are found easily on the internet which prompted Florida and Louisiana to implement an emergency ban on the products.
