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!
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.
