The real problem is that they continue to always buy and sell the next best thing called energy stimulants and drinks in turn have the same effect as the bath salts, window cleaner, spice, ect,
when taken more then recommended dose. why is there no minor consumption for that? or DUI of excessive use of over the counter drugs.
I have seen people messed up for days from whats called Stingers, Redlines,or in the hospital room from them, just a little extra on what your bath salt users will go to when they don't have anymore legal handouts. Why are those not on the Designer drug lists? I have seen a person lose there life over stingers.
