Thank you, Mike. As I was reading it, that's the same thing that came to mind for me.
I've just never heard of ANY drug that makes people behave like dogs and eat another person's FACE! That's why it's weird to me...I know about meth, but meth never did that, nor did crack as far as I know...

I bet meth can do that to some people. So many people take this stuff without any logical thought about the consequences, they think it will be fun to try once ...
I don't think alcohol makes people act like this. And the thing about alcohol is that it can be used responsably, a lot of these artificial drugs really can't be used responsably very well.

Probably the worst thing about meth is that it gets EVERYWHERE. I hope that guy didn't have kids, it can damage their immune systems.

Quote: But what’s scary about bath salts is how the drug seems to have appeared out of nowhere, and how fast it’s taking hold. In the past year, the number of calls to poison control centers about bath salts increased more than 20 times, according to the American Association of Poison Control Centers, from 304 reports in 2010 to 6,138 in 2011. According to the FDA, no reports of the drug surfaced until 2009, during which the FDA reported two cases. By the following year there were more than 300 cases, and by last year the number had tripled to over 900 cases.
That’s a tiny number, to be sure. But those most often using the drugs are teens, whose brains and central nervous systems are still developing. In fact, experts say the drugs are marketed directly to kids, with cartoon characters on the colorful packages.
So we have a drug that’s easily available, inexpensive, innocent sounding, and profoundly addictive. Doesn’t that sound to you like we’re going to have a serious new drug problem on our hands in a few years?

I guess I'm officially 'old' now, since I rarely even drink any more, as I don't care for how it makes me feel. But these trips, and the impact that stuff has on one's brain chemistry, as well as body temp, perspiration, motor reflexes....
where's THAT get fun ?
