Bath salts? Really?

Twenty four year old former heroin addict who bought a ticket to the critical care unit by shooting up with bath salts. She was fine, however, the 6 week old embryo she was carrying was not. Even though she blamed the nursing staff for killing her baby with all the "drugs" we "made" her take, I feel bad for her. I feel bad for her husband, and the two small children they have together. I truly hope she gets the help she needs.

I had no idea this is something that has apparently become popular with kids. This is a video explaining the risks of bath salts in case you are like me and haven't heard of this "drug" before now.

In Florida it has become a major issue.

I've heard of the Bath salts thing, you're right what a shame for her family.
The one that still gets me are teenagers and alcoholics doing shots of hand sanitizers to get a buzz.

I must live in my own naive little bubble. Shots of hand sanitizer is just as shocking to me as shooting up bath salts.
