I read about this. Insanity!! Honestly, I don't know what it is. They said bath salts with the man in Miami and then said he only had pot in his system. BS. They were saying some newer drugs have chemical compounds which break down quickly, or were not understood well. I wish they would pin point this. Most of my K2 and bath salts calls at work have been rapid heart rate, paranoia, sleep disturbances, and seizures. Not urges to growl and eat flesh.

I read that you can't test for bath salts...not sure if that's true but, that's what I read. It said the only way cops know if you take it is if you admit it...?

I'll have to ask about that. I'm not sure if tests can clearly read it or not. I wondered how many days they waited to do an autopsy on the man in Miami. It took forever to get results, and then they came back several days later saying that wasn't correct.

I thought these people were taking a drug that was called "bath salts," like as a street name, not that they're actually taking bath. salts. Like "Devil's dandruff" = cocaine or whatever. Still, freaky. Zombie apocalypse anyone?

You were right the first time. Bath salts got their name because they look like, and can be disguised as, actual bath salts even though they're quite different.

It is and its sold in head shops with various names like ocean snow, red dove, etc... They have many amphetamines along with other chemicals that are not meant to be ingested. Same with K2 and harmful chemicals. Some teens in my county have had massive seizures and died as a result of it, and K2 is what Demi Moore supposedly did when she had her seizure.

BTW, I read somewhere that the damage that these drugs do is permanent. Anyone else watch a documentary about this drug in Colombia that turns you into a "zombie"?

You can just sniff it or inhale it slightly from holding a paper. When you're on it, you lose your free will and people can get you to do anything. It's scary!

It was a big part of a storyline on Castle this past season. Otherwise I wouldn't have - I didn't have any idea if it was real or not.


As for K-2, my idiot runaway nephew decided since he could go to jail for pot he'd do that instead. While on it he did things like arrange the break-in of his own home. And publicly admit it.

There are tests for bath salts and many of the drugs in them. However, there are so many new drugs coming out these days, labs can't keep up with all of them.

Good to know. I did read an article saying that they had a hard time determining the newer ones on the market. I was curious about that because I know some of the drugs in them can be found in other substances. Yeesh! It is scary how many newer ones are coming out, and how incredibly accessible they are.

After the death of teens in my county, a local music store was banned from selling K2 as incense. They have a small paraphernalia section. A follow up investigation found boxes of it being sold from the back.

And thank you The biggest draw back to my job is lack of communication or follow up with the officers. We are not under law enforcement so most of the time we find out things the same way the general public does. We call ourselves mushrooms. We're kept in the dark and fed ****. Lol. Sometimes they give us heads up on newer drugs but I like to stay updated on them. I've got to consider medical, law, and scene safety. These attacks have been unnerving.

Fifi, it's scary stuff. We had a couple high profile cases in my state where bath salts played a role. In one, an army sergeant killed his wife and little boy then killed himself. They've been banned in Washington since last year. I can't imagine what you must hear on 911 calls.

That is awful, MP. Most of my calls have been from younger kids and most have been K2 related and not bath salts. Even with the bath salts I've had, they have all been milder hallucinations, cardiac issues, seizures, etc... Thankfully no one has murdered, but the loss of young lives is tragic enough. We probably have not seen the worst, when it comes to bath salts.

I'm going speak with our training officer and see if she can get a class scheduled, for both. She's trying to put together another meth related class, but we've had that already. We need more information on the newer drugs. It truly is scary.

I do not understand how these drugs are legal when things like marijuana is not. Marijuana if anything just makes you lazy and eat a bunch of cold pizza. I would prefer it if people were on that over things like alcohol and these psychotic drugs that are on the rise.

^ right! It's been a tricky thing with bath salts being marketed as bath salts, incense, cleaners, etc... And being sold in gas stations, head shops, wherever. And with K2 being marketed as incense.

I don't understand the need for synthetic marijuana, period. Yeah, it's cheaper but WTH?!? It's chemicals. *Well let me say an herbal blend treated with chemicals to mimic the THC effect* You know that's not going to be the same, or good for you.

What are they called at these stores? Because I love incense but don't want to accidentally get these drugs instead!

K2 is a brand name but I do believe it has different blend names, like some bath salts. K2 is dried leaves and bath salts are a powdery/crystal looking substance. Just stay with standard stick or cone incense
