Are Bath Salts to Blame for "Zombie-Like" Crimes?
The CDC is saying that recent “zombie-like” crimes across the US could be linked to bath salts, not the ones that are used for relaxation in the bath tub. With all eyes on this cheap, highly available new drug, just how dangerous are they to your health?
Dr. Marc Siegel said that these products can be purchased in some drugs stores and convenience stores even though the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) has banned them and they're illegal in 28 states.
“Many of [the bath salts] contain something called MDPV, which is a very, very powerful psycho-stimulant that can cause your heart rate to go up, your blood pressure to go up, you can have an out-of-body experience. You can get agitated, paranoid and psychotic,” he said.
“These are designer drugs that are very, very powerful, probably the worst we’ve seen yet,” Siegel added.
