What are Salt Salts?
Bath salts are a 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. Its chemical name is Methylenedioxypyrovalerone or MDPV.
The technical term for bath salts is substituted cathinone. Substituted cathinone is synthetic, a concentrated version of the stimulant chemical in Khat. Khat is a plant 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 leading ingredients for bath salts among other synthetic stimulants like Methylone, Butylone and Mephedrone, MDPV started appearing around 2004 and 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 is currently no prescribed use for the synthetic stimulants. While artificial 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 adverse effects have resulted in 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.
