What The Heck? Folks Are Snorting Bath Salts To Get High!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Effective immediately, bath salts are now banned in Washington state.

The State Board of Pharmacy issued the emergency ban, targeting products like Ivory-Wave, Red Dove and Zoom. It says the products contain chemicals that, when inhaled, snorted, or smoked, give the same high as illegal drugs."


Bath salts bring to mind a refined, beautiful and wealthy woman who is seeking to enhance her bathing experience.

Real men don`t eat quiche, don`t watch the Lifetime Channel Oprah, and they don`t buy bath salts. But now a lot of unsavory dudes are buying bath salts, and it`s not because they want to be fresh as a daisy.

The war against drugs is a losing battle, people with an addictive personality will always find new ways to get high. If you could get high from inhaling farts, people would flock around Oprah when she`s at an all-you-can-eat restaurant.

In the sate of Washington bath salts are a Schedule 1 controlled substance, that means that you will be arrested if you sell or buy them.

Kids don`t try bath salts, you might end up in the hospital. Think of the embarrassment if you end up in jail with some real tough dudes, and they find out you were arrested for snorting bath salts.
