@ ashes. Stop being "ignorant" with your 1 track mind. Some of these ppl, need to take the head outta their ass & realize that the more they take these fake drugs off the market, more harmful ones are produced.
First of all, I was referring to the "ignorant" as those who actually thought people were snorting up "bath salts" you put in the bath tub. People read the headline and not the article and than sound dumb because they don't know what they are talking about. I didn't say anything about making them legal or illegal.

Let me have a big news flash here so you can all understand whats going on....the stuff that they are trying to get high off of is not "bath salts" you put in the bath. It's a powder that was made for people to get high and it is sold under the name "bath salts". It isn't really bath salts. Stop being ignorant.

Ban stupid people a hundred times over, and we won't have to ban everything else.

What happened to your daughter is very unfortunate and I am sorry you have to go through it. However, banning and making it illegal is not going to stop anything. They will come up with a new chemical compound to over ride the chemicals they ban. No matter how much you ban drugs, if people want to do it, they will. All other drugs that are illegal are still used, people find a way. It is not the drugs, it is the people.

I wasn't being a bitch. You only knew what you knew because you did not read the whole article, just the headline. If you had, you would have realized that people are snorting up a chemical sold under the name bath salts. I was simply stating the facts that you failed to notice.

It's funny to me how probably more than half of you on here sit back and judge and you don't even know what these bath salts do,you are just sheep who believe every headline put in front of you and you just know it's bad because they say it is,I tried this bath salt stuff just to form a true opinion and I will tell you don't believe the hype,it seems to me it's kind of like another gimmick to throw the American people off of what problems they were on before.I didn't want to do more or even run out and do more,nor were their any hallucinations or anything of the sort.It had no bad effect on me and after doing it don't have no want to ever do it again.I will say that all this attention it is getting everywhere though will make people want to go see what it's about and will make our young people especially want to try it that much more.

You can tell the one's who are on the bath salt's because thier face an body has nasty sores all over them. It's very gross an I personally think they have no clue that they are sitting around in public picking at their nasty sores. My teenage son brought this to my attention one day in the grocery store an we both were grossed out by this person an was afriad he may had touched something we was purchasing.

My fiance thought he would try these on a whim. It led to the most tumultous 4 months of my life. As i sit here right now, he's in a mental hospital. He's spent all of our savings, has lost his job, and has become a person i've never known. He went from a proud, clean cut, hard working man to this person who runs around the house all night looking for hidden cameras and peering out the window every 5 minutes because people are coming to get him. He's been in the hospital for about a week now, and he is going to start drug therapy...this ban could not come soon enough, it has ruined our lives.

I'm a parent who just found out my adult kid has charged $8000. on a credit card to a business selling this crap! Now she can't pay the bill! I told her to tell them to take her to court and show what the charges are all for! Her problem, got herself into it, be an adult and get out! Is the day coming when businesses need run out of town to protect our families? I think this is an example that law enforcement bust the business and confiscate everything of the business for re-couping expences! The manufactures should be shutdown!
