A 34-year-old woman in New Orleans recently lost her arm and one of her breasts to necrotizing fasciitis — sometimes known as “flesh-eating disease” — after injecting herself with the dangerous new drug known as “bath salts.”
For the past couple of years, headshop drugs have become increasingly popular. With “legal” alternatives to everything from weed to cocaine available, kids are failing to realize how these drugs are made. Spice is potpourri sprayed with an industrial chemical similar to THC dissolved in acetone. Bath salts are a research chemical known as MDPV, which was fairly hard to get until recently. If something has to be sold as “not intended for human consumption” to be legal, then it probably shouldn’t be injected into your body.
