People have mutilated themselves, and commit suicide after doing that stuff. The woman who microwaved her baby a while back was thought to have been under the influence and a girl in a Cape hospital was brain dead and on life support bc of bath salts.

I hate to say it, because I do feel most drugs, MOST OF ALL-- LEGAL PRESCRIPTION DRUGS-- have very dangerous potential side affects and potential for addiction...
And I completely understand the reasoning for wanting to get drugs controlled/banned.. for at least MOST people, its because they genuinely dont want people to suffer. They care about others, and thats great! I feel compelled to do the same,... as long as it gets banned, whatever it takes, is GOOD! Right?
Well, I can't OVERSTRESS how much unrecognized damage is CAUSED above and beyond the drug it's self from OVER stating/exaggerating/or otherwise not allowing yourself to become fully knowledgeable about ALL!! of the FACTUAL information regarding a drug, prior to going out and trying to warn people about it. It's a just cause, but sensationalizing just really..and I mean REALLY REALLY makes people want to the MORE!! I never heard of this stuff, then I say it over and over on the news...OVER AND OVER FOR WEEKS!...I went and bought some and been on it for months now. You know how cheap that stuff if online??? And you still have people worried about meth...which I agree on it's own is much worse..however combined with the constant news coverage talking about how much people are using this stuff,... and how CHEAP and available it is... its very easy for people to feel like any of the negative information is OVER exaggerated.. regardless if it is or not..its from our country's PAST and continued behavior..

MARIJUANA! It has CONTINUALLY even today been said to cause all these crazy problems, making people kill people, and all kinds of stuff. DESPITE EVER SINGLE UNBIASED SCIENTIFIC look at it PROVING all this stuff is COMPLETELY FALSE. The stuff is 100% safe .. and everyone knows it.. So the government continuing to say its not.. just proves that anything said about ANY drug, is just as ludacrisas saying pot makes people kill or go crazy. it almost makes me sick to say it, but this WILL continue until we all start taking a REASONABLE and ..even though drug addiction is hard for someone who hasn't had to go through it to understand.. is NO excuse for you to not put forth EVERY effort to understand and try to help. Simply ignoring it, or just letting yourself believe that, being a drug addict..and "that lifestyle", would never happen to you. True, when your feeling normal and your brain is working normal.. But..everyone seems to forget that ALL DRUGS..all chemicals, AND FOOD!! is included in this, greatly affect your brain, mood, feelings, emotions. EVERYTHING. And not just in the short term, but longer. This is a FACT for EVERY living being on this planet. So ignoring this critical piece of information.. leads us to present day.
It's hard to love someone and see them go through the pain of drug addiction.. It's just NATURAL to pull yourself away from it to protect yourself from that pain.. and its easier to just blaim them for your pain, instead of all the effort and pain it takes to try to understand it. They KNOW how much pain it causes, and it just makes their pain continually worse.. just because it hurts them to know they are causing people they love pain.. I know all this from my own experiences..and Im only 22yo! Just only recently in the past year coming to terms with all this. I recognize my faults and responsibilities with everything I've done, but the ONLY way I can even WANT to get myself better, even feel like I DESERVE to get better.. is from the comfort of knowing a lot of other things were involved with the way I behaved.. Not an excuse for myself, but a way to ... not feel so damn responsible..because the FACT is.. these chemcials change the way you think...PERIOD! EVERY DRUG does.. EVERY food item does..
At this critical time, when a person for a moment thinks they might deserve a little better life.. usually it's met with distrust, hate, and a general feeling from everyone they love.. of .. that fear of them not getting better. Which is COMPLETELY reasonable, if you aren't aware of all the facts.. Otherwise.. its the EXACT same selfish .. self preservation to protect yourself from pain as the addict you are so fearful for.. You love them and don't want to see them suffer.. but its hard to get past that..so you distance.. And so do they!
Sorry.. too long of a post. But the bath salt thing has just really affected me and ..really made me see how everyone's concern for each other is blinding everyone to any REAL, rational solution, and leaves everyone feeling abandoned, betrayed, and hurt. Parents, children, friends, addicts, EVERYONE!

I tried some bath salts. I liked it the first couple times I did it but after that it doesn't work like you want it to. You don't have to do as much as if you're doing another insufflated drug.

Hey there is your problem! How about not expecting school to do ur job n u the parent talk to ur kids about drugs!!! My son is 12 and I am already telling him about drugs. Showed him pictures of pills, meth, ect so he knows!! I go thru his backpack n when my daughter was still living at home went thru her car, room, ect. I dont give two shits about their privacy in this day and age. They live under my roof and when they pay for their own roof they can do what they want. All of us parents need to stay up on what's going on n the latest drugs n what to look for. I ask my friends who have older kids what's what. You can really learn alot!! hell kids these days don't see oral sex as a big thing at all and most don't even consider it sex!!!

No, it's a research compound. It actually has nothing to do with bath salts or any other household product. Google the term "4-MMC" -- which is an abbreviation of one of several compounds marketed (to avoid FDA regulations) as "bath salts".

The "bath salts" were created over seas as a way to help crack and meth addicts get off of the illegal drugs. When they came to America however it advertised as a form of "legal coke". Sad so many people are getting addicted to all sorts of things, and it isn't the parents' or school's fault. Peers have a bigger influence than most think. When you want to be accepted into social groups or get noticed, you go with the flow and do what they are doing. Parents and schools can only do so much. When I went to high school, you could walk down the hall to class and get pills, weed, maybe even some coke if someone had some to sell. Bath salts are dangerous but people won't stop doing them. Methheads blow up meth labs and die andcocaine addicts overdose and die, but still others do the drugs and get hooked. Legalize weed or drop the ban on "incense" and let people toke up instead of doing "bath salts". In the long run people will be happier, many won't die from overdose and food establishments will gain more profit from munchies.
