The Federal government dropped the hammer back in July 2011. Several chemicals labeled as “bath salts” (mephedrone, MDPV, and methylone) were banned and rendered schedule I controlled substances. Are any brick and mortar stores still selling them?
I certainly have not seen any in NY, OH, CA, or FL. There was one gas station that sold what appeared to be a “stimulant” which was more than likely some sort of cathinone or similar substance.
Bath Salts peaked in 2011 and are on the decline, which is a good thing given the potency of the, what are now Schedule I controlled substances. Prescription medication is much safer, right? Pharma is 100% aligned with the public interest and well being, right?
What do you guys think about the selling of bath salts?
[UPDATE] bath salts have been banned. Well, the chemicals labeled as bath salts (methylone, mephedrone and MDPV) have been banned and categorized as a schedule I controlled substance. That’s jail time, folks. Be smart.
The federal ban on chemicals being labeled as “bath salts” is looming. Can’t say we didn’t see this coming. I can see how people can fall into the grips of a serious binge and dependency. The euphoria is great, but only last a few minutes to an hour. The urge to re-dose is very strong. If you haven’t any other obligations but smoke weed and lead a non-productive life, go for it, re-dose that shit.
These chemicals are going to be in high demand after the banning of these insane wave of very ridiculous synthetic drugs. Bath salts are a very unique beast. Unfortunately they got massive amounts of negative press because, well, most people are stupid… add this drug into the equation and you’ve got a delusional, disconnected, strung out moron.
We don’t sell anything that is illegal, in fact, we don’t sell anything. This is just a blog with a little bit of info, some stories with piss-poor journalistic integrity, and a whole lot of bullshit we like to write when we are completely sober. Drugs are bad… Get a fucking job and stop ruining your life and fucking up your families.
Erica Hill: There’s a new form of designer drug causing increasing concern among authorities. They’re called bath salts, but frankly, they are actually a dangerous stimulant, something closer to cocaine or meth. They’re believed to have caused at least four deaths in the US. And joining us now with more is medical correspondent Dr. Jennifer Ashton. These have nothing to do with taking a relaxing bath with say some salts from the Dead Sea.
Dr. Jennifer Ashton: Correct, and the name sounds harmless. In reality, Erica, they are anything but harmless. These basically contain a designer or synthetic drug known as Mephedrone or MDPV. It’s an amphetamine. They’re marketed as bath salts and you can find them readily either online or in stores under name like Zoom2 or Aura. Our producer found them very easily in New York City. When she went in to ask for them she was told, ‘Wow, they’re flying off the shelf, it’s a good thing you’re getting these.’ Continue reading →
Bath salts have been dubbed fake cocaine. Incense and Spice are a type of synthetic marijuana. They’re legally sold on the internet and at many head shops and smoke shops but now two bills in the state legislature are aiming at taking those drugs off of store shelves.

Male: You just need someone 18 to go to any smoke shop and get it.

Newsperson: A designer drug has quickly provoked an aggressive reaction from legislative hall. The drug sold under the moniker “Bath Salts” has been temporarily declared a controlled substance. Under an emergency ruling signed by Delaware Secretary of State Jeff Bollock, the order is in effect until January 2012 when the Delaware General Assembly will be looking to pass legislation banning the drug permanently. The stimulant which can be snorted, injected, smoked, and even mixed with food and drink can mimic the effects of drugs like cocaine, LSD, ecstasy, or methamphetamine. Bath salts can cause hallucinations, reduced motor control, chest pains, disorientation, extreme paranoia, convulsions, and violent episodes. They are also believed to have lead to numerous suicides. Poison centers have reported growing numbers of calls about the drug and many states across the country are looking for it to be banned. Continue reading →
Addiction to methylone, MDPV or mephedrone, in my opinion and experience is not as bad as narcotics and cocaine. Despite the high accessibility, decreased risk of obtaining and low cost, these chemicals are not as gripping and emotionally taxing. However, I do know a lot people who have ruined their lives on these drugs. These people have strong addictions problems and zero self control.
In terms of recovery, coming down and going cold turkey, the effects are not nearly as painful as heroin or cocaine. One day of down time and recovery is all it takes, even after a week long binge. Perhaps these are just my experiences with observing other people. Continue reading →

Amped ladybug attractant is a specific type of synthetic drug that falls under the category “bath salts”. It is a matter worth mentioning that laws have taken its own course and disapproved certain chemicals within this particular compound. Amped ladybug attractant is camouflaged as cleaners, incense and plant foods. In most cases, Amped ladybug attractant carries warning labels that warn against human consumption. The labels however do not contain the list of ingredients present in the compound. Individuals can always inject, smoke and grunt the bath salts too. It is a regrettable fact as well that the chemicals that form a part of this Amped ladybug attractant can cause immense health problem to a concerned individual and even can kill. Remember, physicians find it truly difficult to figure out the exact constituents ingested and hence it is the sole responsibility of the concerned individual to figure out the constituents necessarily consumed. Rose remarks that the drugs are similar to that of time bombs. Continue reading →
