You clueless hypocritical bast@rd. In other forums you speak highly of public officals and in disdain and disgust of the general public. You are a simple monolithic type thinker and try to disguise this by offering your versions of facts and dismissing all others. Your blog in support of the merge has zero credibility, and shows your bias.You are in support of the county Legislature elimnating or modifying public comments, and praise government and authority,yet on topics of drugs encourage public debate. What a hypocritical a$$.
You are surely an academic,and a poor one at that, as your egotism and eliteness is overbearing.
Who the hell is this we, your hallucinogenic alter ego?
First of all, I have not spoken highly of public officials in other FORUMS. I have spoken highly of public officials on other THREADS. Get your terminology straight.

Secondly, I am not at all encouraging public debate on drugs (in particular bath salts)-- to the contrary, I am trying to quash it. Bath salts and the few isolated instances involving them should not be in the news nor a topic of such public discussion.

The miscreants who have run afoul of the law whilst on bath salts were, first and foremost, miscreants, and if it was not bath salts then it would have been three quarts of Colt 45 that contributed to their ill behavior.

In their efforts to sell newspapers and TV ad time, the media, with the police complicit, have unfairly demonized bath salts while completely ignoring their virtues.

Now, with a school merge, we would have the resources needed to educate youth about bath salts just as we do about alcohol, that is, as a recreational product to be enjoyed in moderation and good cheer.

Another overreaction to a misperceived epidemic. Just because a few people don't know how to handle the bath salts, let's ban the substance altogether.
This country has not learned from its mistakes in banning marijuana, LSD and some other drugs.
Education about the potential effects of overindulgence in bath salts is what is needed -- NOT outlawing the products!
Lsd and other drugs that you have listed should be banned. The problem is most people can't control there drug use and a substance like bath salts has proven to be very dangerous. You sound like to me a person that uses drugs and is trying to justify its use. Maybe you should seek help. It will get the best of you in the end!

Has anyone read the series on bath salts in the OD that began Sunday? What a train wreck of irresponsible journalism!

There's an old saying, "There are two sides to every story," well that certainly wasn't the case in the OD's flagrantly biased stories! Every one of them demonized bath salts quoting law enforcement and so-called experts without a word in the defense of bath salts.

I'll say it again: Outlawing bath salts undermines personal liberties. Bath salts are a recreational product that affords enjoyment and satisfaction to a great number of people, without incident. You never see stories about the good that bath salts do.

Shame on the OD for sensationalizing something that should not be viewed as a problem in the first place!

You have to be the most clueless of all posters ever on this forum! and there are many.. when you say, "they have many therapeutic properties that can enhance one's quality of life", to what kind of bath salts are you referring? get your head outa your ___!

We saw in the Telegram that the village of Frankfort is now considering a "ban" on bath salts.
What a bass-ackwards approach to a "problem" that is not even a problem. It should disturb us all that the "leaders" of a ridiculous little village like Frankfort can infringe on personal liberties.
Why not, instead, organize some community workshops to educate people about bath salts? Outreach and education is what is needed to inform people about bath salts amid all the sensationalized media reports.
The fact is that bath salts have many therapeutic properties that can enhance one's quality of life. Why not focus efforts on the proper and responsible use and enjoyment of these products?
But no, just like marijuana and LSD, the kneejerk reaction is to legislate them into illegality.

Yeah, products specifically labeled "not for human consumption" usually are really good for you. Oh wait, No they aren't!
Hey, do us all a favor. Crystal drain-o is a manufactured chemical that is also labeled not safe for human consumption. You should ingest a few ounces of that to see what kind of high you get. Maybe you can wash it down with some clorox and mineral spriits.

DUH, You ruined it. This merge aholic actually thinks bath salts are what your Granny put in her tub to relax in.
Friend of the merge....you are clearly one of the stupidest poster, or just some kid getting a rise out of people really thinking you have no clue of what "bath salts" are. Which is it?

I would like to know the "good" bathsalts can do? i havent heard of one yet? and the merge will give what we need to educate kids on bathsalts? i am against the merger, and i dont want to give my tax money for people to teach my kids the "good and bad about bathsalts". They are harmful and mess with the brain. Only drug addicts and pushers want it to be illegal for monetary gain. I would never let my child sit in a class where they accept or promote the use of any drugs or alcohol. Everyone reacts different on drugs, why even take that chance, would you like it if ur kid took some bathsalts than decided he wanted to attack and eat you? i think your view on things would change!
