Bath salts are the newest Over the Counter way to get high. Even teens find them affordable at about $20.00 per package. They are termed "legal cocaine" or "legal speed".
The fake bath salts contain two chemicals: mephedrone and methylenedioxpyrovalerone. Called MDPV, both chemicals are potent. Folks, a bath salts high is deadly dangerous.
Because of price and availability and the fact the sales aren't regulated, parents should be alert for signs of bath salt sniffing, smoking or injecting.
