Youths Using Bath Salts in Alarmingly High Rates
In 2011 alone, bath salts caused 23,000 ER visits, where the users complained of problems such as seizures, high blood pressure, and heart problems. And the drugs have other side effects, too. They can have a severe psychological impact, causing intense psychosis as well as suicidal thoughts. And when mixed with other drugs, bath salts can be deadly. 67 percent of the ER visits from youths taking designer drugs included at least one other drug. And there may be some indication that bath salts cause violent behavior-like in a well-publicized story in 2012 in which a man took bath salts and ate a homeless man's face.
