So let’s talk about bath salts for a bit since we are starting to find them in my sleepy little city. I have talked about the different types of effects these designer type drugs are causing with a ER doctor that also subs as a swat officer with a larger PD in my area. He told me outside of making you want to chew a naked mans face off for the hell of it they are great…….well actually he said that based on their findings they are possibly the most dangerous narcotic to hit our streets in American in a long time.
He also went on to state that the chemicals used to manufacture the drug are going to be increasingly hard to regulate and that the drugs are extremely addictive (meth/heroin addictive). Some of effects that will be present are increased body temp/hallucinations/numbed pain receptors (LSD), euphoria and warming sensation as it passes into the bloodstream (heroin), and extreme blood pressure and heart rate spikes, adrenal gland dumps (meth). Some of you in more populated areas are dealing with this more than me and I would love some insight on what you are seeing. This particular doctor explained that based on the effects of these drugs he predicts violent encounters between users and law enforcement are going to skyrocket over the new few years and I might tend to agree with him. Your thoughts?
