What is MDPV?
Bath salts is a form of designer drug, also promoted as plant food or research chemicals. It is sold mainly in head shops and on the Internet, and at other retail locations. Methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV)
The technical term for bath salts is substituted cathinone. Substituted cathinone is synthetic, concentrated version of the stimulant chemical in Khat. Khat is a plant that is grown in East Africa and the Middle East. It has a stimulant effect on the user and has proven to be dangerous. The white crystals resemble legal bathing salts, thus the name of bath salts.
In 2009 and 2010 there was a significant rise in the abuse of synthetic cathinone, initially in the United Kingdom and the rest of Europe, and subsequently in the US and Canada.
Established as one of the main ingredients for bath salts among other synthetic stimulants like Mephedrone, Methylone, Butylone and Methedrone, MDPV started appearing around 2004 when it was popularized as a club drug, often used with a combination with alcohol, GHB, cannabis and other abused drugs. Its desired effects are euphoria, alertness, talkativeness, and sexual arousal.
There are currently no prescribed use for the synthetic stimulants. While synthetic stimulants appear to affect users in ways similar to amphetamines, ecstasy and cocaine, reports concerning
aggression, tachycardia, paranoia and suicide suggest that they may be more acutely toxic. These negative effects have resulted in an increased visits to the ER and hospitalization.
In October 2011, the DEA announced an emergency ban on MDPV, Methylone and Mephedrone, making testing for these substances more vital than ever.
