"Bath Salts"--CCENDU Drug Alert

“Bath salts” is a name used for a class of products containing synthetic stimulants that look like salts and are sold by dealers via the Internet or in drug paraphernalia shops. The general public, especially youth, should be aware that although bath salts are often identified as “legal highs” or “not illegal” this does not make them safe.

People taking bath salts have reported:

• Hallucinations
• Paranoia
• Chest pain
• Blurry vision
• Increased body temperature
• Possible agitation and combativeness

Reports from the Maritime Provinces indicate that authorities have witnessed an increased presence of bath salts.
