Bath Salts and PCPs?

by Kelly
(Akron, Ohio)

I am on probation and I dropped dirty for PCP.

I have never seen nor did I know it even existed anymore.

I have been doing bath salts. Does this have anything to do with it???


Here is an excerpt posted April 11, 2011 in American Medical News, written by Carolyne Krupa

“The powerful stimulants, known as "bath salts," are sold legally in much of the United States and typically include a variety of chemical compounds, including derivatives of cathinone, piperidine, pyrovalerone and tryptamine, said emergency physician Zane Horowitz, MD, medical director of the Oregon Poison Center.

The dangerous behaviors the drugs provoke have led the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada and Israel to ban the chemicals methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV) and mephedrone, commonly found in bath salts stimulants.

In the United States, at least eight states, including Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi and North Dakota, have outlawed the drugs, and many other states are considering similar action. Several counties, cities and local municipalities also have banned the products.

This should answer the question.
