I know a 19 year old in Cottonwood AZ that was into abusing Oxycontin, and hydrocodine, crushing them and snorting them up his nose, until he got caught so many times they finally put him on mandatory U.A.'s.. Then he found bath salt, he has tried meth once or twice before, but says bath salt is a much better, cheaper, longer lasting high, it also does not show up in his U.A's. He has become so paranoid, he can not sit still, he thinks people are watching him, and chasing him everywhere he goes, he paces the floor, he says it feels like bugs are crawling under his skin, and scratches himself until he bleeds, he lost 50 pounds, and recently was put into rehab, he has a horrific rash all over his hands, arms, chest and neck.. So rehab sent him to the hospital.. The Verde Valley Medical center ran several tests on him to try and figure out what was wrong. They found he has fried his brain,his brain shrunk inside his head, he has nerve damage in his bran that causes him to feel these "bugs" crawling under his skin. He has been off bath salt for about 4 months now but the paranoia, and feeling of bugs has not stopped, the doctors say he will have episodes where he feels like he used bath salt when he did not. They are not sure how long it will last because the nerve damage is permanent .. The rashes are very bad looking, it looks like leprosy.. He can not go anywhere because it grosses people out to look at him, he is also skin and bones, and not getting any better.. He is now in a half way house.

This crap has got to be taken OFF the market, and made extremely illegal! The doctors told him meth is less damaging than this bath salt crap, as far as side effects they are seeing come in!!

I hope this guy does not die from it, he is in bad shape and says he dreams about doing more bath salt, and when he gets out wants to use again.. He no longer cares about himself, anyone or anything except using bath salt!

This is a horrible drug and people need to know about it and make the use of it illegal!

This is totally made up. No drug will make your brain physically shrink. Please read about what drugs are typicall in these bath salts, find research that is not put out by the government (as that info will likely be propaganda) about said drugs, and then make an educated decision.
