If you're not familiar with the so-called Bath Salts, M (as its called) or Shards, allow me to educate you.
They are all synthetic drugs that mimic cocaine and/or ecstasy (X) that are currently legal to sell in Missouri. Basically legal amphetamines (speed). They are usually snorted but can be taken orally or with a needle. The entire town of Poplar Bluff is being covered like a snow storm with them.
Bath Salts are sold through retailers such as alcohol stores and head shops. The biggest seller in Poplar Bluff right now is Northtown Beer Stop. The greek family is making money at the expense of peoples lives. As long as you are over 18 you can ask for the product at the counter and get it. If you call and ask you will usually be told they do not sell them.
The "M" drug is similar to bath salts in that provides the rush plus a high similar to ecstasy. It's real name is mephedrone (google it). It's brought into the area through a few local people and redistributed. It's a bad kept secret in Poplar Bluff who's selling it too. This drug also goes by the name "shards".
Something must happen to stop this. Idiots are spending hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars on these drugs. The more exposure it gets the less likely people will be to deal and buy them.
If you know someone selling, put their name out there, let the public know.
