In the US it is alarm bath salts! But be careful to confuse them with the scented, colored and relaxing-looking substances that we put in the bathtub when we want to disconnect from the stress of the daily routine. These drugs that began touring regularly in the United States last year from bath salts get their name because they are sold in powder and crystal form, but they would differ from these in one fundamental way: they are used as recreational, snorting, snorting drugs. inject or smoke.



It seems in fact that these intoxicants I left that are spreading throughout the US are actually made with chemicals used to produce smart drugs, such as mephefedrone e mdpv, all drugs belonging to the Kath family, natural stimulants very common in East Africa and the Arabian Peninsula, but banned in the USA.

The analyzes on bath salts they came after some strange incidents, in which very normal people suddenly began to feel psychic disorders, sometimes violent and dangerous.

To confirm it is the same doctor Jeffrey Narmi, of the Schuylkill Medical Center in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, who in an interview with New York Times claimed to have seen, one after another, agitated, bulging-eyed people entering his studio in a state of psychotic delusion, so much so that his collaborators had to slap patients and stuff them with sedatives before being able to calm them down. "Some of these - said the doctor - were completely disconnected from reality, in a very serious way".

Eventually, Narmi found that all the people who entered his office with these strange symptoms did use of bath salts.

But why is the danger of these salts only now emerging? And above all, why is the sale not prohibited?

Because the manufacturer that put them on the US market ha affixed on the package the wording (written in lower case) "Not intended for human consumption", an expedient that allowed the company to put them on the market anyway, even though having used illegal substances.



It must be remembered that today they are almost 30 countries around the world that have banned these bath salts; obviously affixing a particular label is not enough to protect the health of citizens!

A hot bath, however, has never hurt anyone, quite the opposite! Read the 10 benefits of bath salts here.
