A person can get "high" by huffing gasoline too.Drinking Listerine or spraying lacquer.People can also get very high and drunk on alcohol which is
always legal and available.Go figure.

When I fill my bathtub and put some of this specific "salt" in the hot water, will the inhaled steam cause me to fight with my bathtub that is attacking me?

I love that phrase "urging lawmakers". That's how they keep justifying their jobs. I urge lawmakers to take a 50% pay cut, create a law eliminating income taxes. Like that will ever happen.
I say put a huge tax on it! May even help put the state back in the black. Just like weed should be legalized and taxed like cigarettes. Too many lives are lost trying to keep Marijuana illegle. It is an unwinnable battle.

I do agree that sometimes the DEA and lawmakers go too far in telling us what we can and cannot have but they have a tough job. Give em a break and support them in what they do. This stuff is Dangerous. Sure, most anything can be abused but when it becomes easily accessible to children something needs to be done. I don't particulary agree with a ban but I do agree with regulation.
Lousiana, Florida, and North Dakota have banned it so far as well as Australia, Canada, and Israel. Senator Schumer of New York is calling for a ban also.

what the f*$# is wrong with people? it never ceases to amaze all the crap people will swallow, inhale, snort, inject, drink just for a high. bath salts,$20 a gram?
ANY responsible establishment would quit selling this stuff right away! but, the almighty dollar will probably stop them from doing so because the $ is worth more than any human life to the people at corporate.

<quoted text>Soooooo, what kind of judgement would you use if one of these knuckle heads tried to hack off one of your loved ones. Wouldn't you think (Why in the hell didn't the ban this stuff?) If you were to tell me different what kind of a person would you be? One more thing I would like to say. I had never heard of this stuff and neither have any of the people I know.Wouldn't it be better not to tell the world about it and while not telling about it put these people out of business?
I say let people screw up their own lives, natural selection at it's finest. And as far as "why in the hell didn't they ban this stuff" I don't know if that's what I would be thinking if something was trying to hack off one of my loved ones the only thing I'm thinking is "two to the chest one to the head."
