Maybe you should read the stories out there and the effect it has on our children. The problem was they knew they were legal so they weren't afraid to try the bath salts or carry them. One boy just came out of his coma. He was very lucky no to have died.

Don't blame republicans as democrats are no better. They both wish to restrict your freedom via force.

With that logic, might as well ban everything else that is legal that carries a risk of death. This includes cars, planes, and fast food.
Another thing, even though it's was legal up until this bill, I did not partake in it. Why? Because I'm not a frelling idiot and did my research on the substances. Why is my private property (taxes) being seized in order to protect people from themselves?

I know of violent crimes committed after the consumption of alcohol so let's ban that too. I also have friends addicted to ciggarettes which are known to cause cancer so I feel they should be banned as well. I'm only looking out for their own good.

These are not the bath salts that you take a bath with. This synthetic drug should have never been "legal" in the first place. Maybe the FDA needs to be a little more aware of the things they are letting go on the shelves.

I know several people including myself that this crap has ruined a whole lot of things in there lives.Yes i liked it and thought it was like doing stuff on the streets 28 years ago but it has screwed up alot of people i know That stuff should never ever have been put on the shelves.Now theres 59 days till it's totally illegal which gives people time to stock up.It should have been an emergency ban long ago.I truly almost lost my foot over it because i just wanted to keep doing it instead of taking care of an awful infection called celluitus by going to the hospitol.I have seen it take mothers kids people loose there homes,loose there jobs, people go to jail for things they never would have thought of doing and plain old just loose it!Im so glad it will be gone! But for some it wasnt soon enough!!! From one who knows

This stuff has ruined many of the people I know all because it was legal... And when it got taken off the shelves around our town people went to the extet of going to other towns ect to get it. I have seen it eat people away, not take care of their kids and act totally rediculious doing thins they normally wouldnt do while on this stuff. I am glad they are banning it but they shuldt have even told anyone because now people are going to be stocking up like crazy and the stores sellig like crazy while they canot get in trouble...... As for all you people that are saying this is wasting tax dollars.... seriously its going to be saving lives I would rather pay taxes for something like this than watch kids getting hurt because their parents dont care or people on their death beds....What is wrong with you people? Have you even read some of the news articles on people getting arrested ect while on this stuff.... I have personally seen it! So unless you actually have then I honestly dont think you understad how serious this is... Its the same as meth and thats illegal isnt it? I actually think this is worse!

What is wrong with me? How about what is wrong with you. You are willing to rob me of my private property in order to save a life. What if I don't want to give up my property (taxes)? Oh that's right, my freedom is stripped and I'm taken to jail to sit and waste other people's money. That's right. I would have my life payed for by other's tax money. You'd be giving me money to eat my meal instead of saving a person's life.

I say we let everyone alone and do as they please with their private property. I'll continue to write software, live a healthy lifestyle, and improve my life with the money I own and earn. Anyone who want's to potentially harm themselves with various substances can do so as long as they do not bother me.

Good day, sir.

I too used to use substances such as these. However, I didn't let it even come close to ruining my life. The only difference was that my gpa dropped from a 4.0 to a 3.25. Boo hoo.

Anywho, I learned responsibility not from laws, but from other interests. Convince me to "care" enough for other people in order to violate their own private property rights. That's right, you can't. I wouldn't like my rights violated and I'm not a hypocrite who would violate another's.

Good day.

I am all for the legalization of cannabis but I believe that there are certain drugs that are so harmful they should remain illegal. Pcp is just one example. These bath salts have been wreaking havoc with people's lives all over the country. The effects are unpredictable and people have died. With freedom comes responsibility and this drug causes people to behave irresponsibly and sometimes dangerously.
