The U.S. Navy and state and national authorities have clamped down on the drug, but there is no absolute approach to keep people from using it.
The Navy campaign's goal is to inform sailors with the dangers of designer drugs like bath salts and spice, thereby decreasing the number of active-duty service members using designer drugs.Drug use on the U.S. Naval Academy continues to be rampant, starting this year. (Watch video)
Of course, bath salts primary prey is teens and the younger generation. They are the ones probably to discount the potential risks of using this drug. It is accessible on the Internet, along with over-the-counter at supermarkets, smoke shops, and from dealers.
The powder-like substance also referred to as 'fake cocaine,' can be snorted, injected, or smoked, and like cocaine users, bath salts users experience fleeting euphoric feelings followed by severe feelings of paranoia, depression, and agitation, as well as an intense yearning for more that could lead to addiction.
Use with the drug produces a powerful high, extreme energy, increased tolerance for pain, delusions of super-human strength and invincibility, and aggressive and violent behavior. Negative side effects include rapid heartrate, hyperhidrosis, nausea, difficulty breathing, brain swelling, hallucinations, insomnia, panic disorder, erratic behavior, reduced motor control, seizures, self-mutilation, suicidal thoughts, suicide, and even murder.
Bath salts' chemical makeup turns some abusers into raving maniacs with violent and sometimes lethal consequences on their own and others. Bath salts is not a fad . . . It is a nightmare.
