Tip This Week- Bath Salts
Since September 2010, poison centers have been hearing about a new synthetic drug known as “bath salts” that has arrived on the drug scene. This new drug is being sold over the internet and in convenience stores, gas stations, gift shops, tobacco stores, head shops, and other local establishments under such brand names as “Ivory Wave”, “Vanilla Sky”, “Red Dove”, “Zoom”, “Bloom”, “Cloud Nine”, “Blue Silk”, “Ocean Snow”, “White Lightening”, “Scarface” and “Hurricane Charlie”. The packages are labeled “bath salts” and “not for human consumption” to disguise the true intent of the product, but they are being promoted and used as cocaine substitutes.
Find out more about bath salts in this episode of the Nursing Show with Lisa Booze of the Maryland Poison Center.
