Bath Salts

Bath Salts

Bath salts are synthetic drugs chemically related to cathinone, which is a stimulant found in the Khat plant. They belong to a group of drugs called “New Psychoactive Substances” (NPS), which are unregulated mind-altering substances that have recently entered the market in new chemical forms and which copy the effects of some of the illegal drugs from the past. Bath Salts are marketed as a cheaper alternative to other expensive drugs, such as meth and cocaine. The drug is commonly found in the form of white or brown crystal-like powder and sold in small plastic bags labeled “Not For Human Consumption,” or “Plant Food,” and sometimes even as “Phone Screen Cleaner.

Some of the common effects of bath salts include anxiety, depression and lowered self-consciousness.
