Bath Salts Making National Headlines

August 7th, 2012 by WCBC Radio

Bath Salts, a synthetic drug is making headlines all over the country, and this past weekend Cumberland City Police this past weekend arrested a 25 year-old Cumberland man who was alleged to have been under the influence of bath salts when he broke into two homes and assaulted individuals back in June. This dangerous drug can cause psychosis and other major health problems. Federal, State, and Local governments are trying to ban bath salts, but drug makers are staying one step ahead of the law by constantly changing the ingredients. It's sold over the internet and, in some places, over the counter. Allegany County Sheriff David Goad said recently that bath salts and other types of legal, yet dangerous synthetic drugs such as K2 and Spice are a growing problem locally- and it’s a learning experience for law enforcement…

    I am glad to see you covering topics with weight here on WCBC…thanks for helping to keep our community informed.

    Here is a link article at my blog that has unfortunately been read more often in a month, then what I had published at The United States Department of Energy nearly two years ago. (you may have to copy and paste it into your browser)

    I hope you will share this so that others may be made aware of the exact confounding issue these chemicals cause be it in legislative measures that are difficult to pass and then enforce due to the chemistry itself of these compounds, as well as the dire circumstances and ultimately death these new designer drugs can be attributed to.

    Ultimately it is education, awareness, and voicing our dis-pleasures with these compounds in our communities that are tearing families apart and adding fuel to the criminal issues right here at home, much less across our great nation.

    I suggest also learning the tell-tale signs of use, especially if your a parent, and seeking treatment for the abuser involved.

    The article is updated with new links often so anyone can research the issue for themselves and draw their own conclusions.

    Thanks again for keeping us on top of our local important issues!
