What are Bath Salts?

I've heard about “bath salts” on the news and all the crazy side effects. Is that the same thing as the bath salts I've been using in my bath for years? I want to get rid of them immediately if that's true!
Pamela P Bath salts for bathing and the bath Salts which you want to know is totally different. No need to worry about your bath salts what you are using for bath. The Bath Salts, also known as the psychoactive bath salts, is the name given to the designer drugs. They are called Bath Salts because the composition resembles with the true bath salts like the Epsom salts. They are in the form of white powder, crystals or granules. The Bath Salts contain a chemical called Cathinone, which is mostly the methylenedioxypyrovalerone, mephedrone, and methylone.

Olivia K The bath salts you are referring to are called synthetic cathinones which are man-made stimulants. It is chemically similar to cathinone which is a derivative of the khat plant, a shrub grown in East Africa that some people use as a stimulant. They are not to be confused with the products you would use during bathing, which have no mind or mood-altering effects.
