Snorting Bath Salts?!

Officials fear bath salts are growing drug problem - Yahoo! News

I am convinced that if eating dog sh!t provided even a mild, unpleasant high, someone, somewhere would be scarfing it down to beat the band.

I always thought that "paint chips" were better with salt.

I am trying to figure out why bath salts would contain hallucinogens in the first place. They're basically just fizzy scented soap...right? Like Alka-seltzer that smells nice?

I don't have a TV at home but on a recent trip to a relative's house, spent quite a bit of time ogling the boob tube at night. There was a program called "My Strange Addiction" which amongst other people, featured a woman who was addicted to eating washing detergent. I couldn't figure out which addiction was stranger - hers, the woman who ate toilet paper, or the woman who was addicted to sleeping with her blow dryer.

This MDPV powder is also sold in Head Shops as a Legal High evidently, but from some info I found on the internet, it is very intense & physical -- similar to Meth, but multiples of intensity. Some peeps snort it like lines of Coke...

Kinda scary IMO.

Quoting myself for a total threadjack, but civet cat sh!t coffee is now available in a de-sh!t-inated version:

https://coffeeprimero.com/store/Stor...nitCost%20DESC

Heck, it's the enzymes that do the trick, and those can be coddled in lab conditions.

If the coffee geek guy on this forum doesn't see this, I'll PM him (if I can recall his name- ahh, OK, I found it - kevink).

This story reminds me of another story in the news last week. Burglars stole what they thought was a plastic bag of cocaine from a home and ended up snorting someone's ashes.

I wonder how many people will read that article and be stupid enough to try it. I've seen references to it on several news pages.

It wouldn't surprise me if that worked.

They were probably at their grandmother's house and looked in her drawers were there were several jars of bath salts from presents and they took a sniff and a new addiction was born .
