"Bath Salts" and real bath salts

So are sellers of actual for-your-bathtub bath salts having any trouble due to the now-ubiquitous name for the illegal drug?

I doubt it, because they are completely different products, with completely different packaging, at completely different price points, sold through completely different venues to completely different customers.

More to the point, are some morons going to the store and buying bath salts, hoping to get high on them?

I think it was an NPR story. The interested parties in the legal 'bath salt' products are pretty upset about the recent coverage and are reporting a significant drop in sales citing people's fear they might experience effect attributed to the illegal drug 'bath salts'

It would appear based on their complaints they feel the news media has not been clear the drug and the product are different things and have no association beyond name.

If this resulted in an increase in sales I doubt they'd be saying anything and would just be counting their good fortune selling additional product to wannabe drug addicts.

Why are these drugs called "bath salts"?

Mind you, the common name had me confused for several months ... were my friends sending me gifts ... or illegal drugs?

They are called that as a fig-leaf cover in order to sell the product, since they are labeled as "not intended for human consumption" even though that IS what they are intended for. The designer drugs contained in them aren't/weren't illegal or regulated, but they would be if they were labeled for human consumption. So they called them bath-salts because they somewhat resemble them, but they could have called them any number of things.

It's similar to the herbal marijuana substitutes that are labeled as either incense or potpourri - as long as the ingredients aren't (yet) regulated and they aren't labeled for human consumption, they can get away with selling the stuff until the laws catch up. (Then they just slightly modify the chemistry to make a new compound that isn't illegal, then rinse and repeat.)

It's like synthetic marijuana (or "marijuana") being sold as "incense."

ETA: wasn't "Bliss" the drug from a very heavy handed Captain Planet episode?

Wikipedia says:
Quote:
In the UK to avoid being controlled by the Medicines Act, designer drugs such as mephedrone have been described as "bath salts" or "plant food", despite the compounds having no history of being used for these purposes.
But that doesn't really answer the question. Was there some reason to choose this particular name? Or was it randomly chosen, and they might as well have called it "rat poison" or something?

(PS: I get the impression from this thread that these drugs are actually manufactured, labeled, and sold in regular stores, with the "bath salt" label being used to skirt the anti-drug laws. Is that correct? I didn't realize that, and have presumed that it was just another illegal drug sold surreptitiously like other illegal drugs, but they needed a name for it -- like "crack" needed a name -- and they chose "bath salts" for some stupid reason.)

So do sellers of bath salts give a reason why they're selling them, since the only real reason is illegitimate?

I have to admit, when I first starting hearing news stories about the drugs, I was confused because they just said "Bath Salts"...not "the drug called Bath Salts" or anything to clarify what it was.

So after a disappointing trip to Bed, Bath, and Beyond, I figured things out.

I was confused too. I thought people were actually finding some way to use real bath salts to get high.

I can't speak to bath salts since I've never even seen them sold, but for fake pot "incense," I know they'd keep the pretense that it was been sold as a fragrance. Maybe with a wink and a nod. Despite the fact that the products were 100% useless for this purpose.

They also sell glass pipes, and a sign next to them says "for tobacco use only." Riiight. It's best if they have a pot leaf pattern all over them.

You can also see these being sold sometimes, in finer establishments. The key is to throw the rose away before you use it as a crack pipe. And the clerks can claim or pretend that they don't know what they're used for and be okay usually.

I believe at least one variety of bath-salt-type drug was being sold as "shoe cleaner." Came across a message board where various aficionados were exchanging tips on which seedy gas stations were still selling this or that brand, complaining that such-and-such brand has disappeared or wasn't as potent anymore, lamenting their inability to stop taking the shit even after losing their jobs/mates/kids/etc., and generally making me weep for mankind.

And to answer the OP's question, there is at least one company that is attempting to publicize the fact that their bath salts are for bathing and not getting high. Whether that clarification ends up helping or hurting their overall sales remains to be seen, I suppose.

Psst.. You should have looked more carefully in the Beyond section.



Actually, I too was quite confused by the stories about "Bath Salts" when they first started appearing in the media.

I hadn't picked up on it until this thread. I understood these were dangerous drugs even though the frenzy of publicity is becoming over the top, but I didn't know the connection to bath salts was entirely bullshit.

Haven't most places cracked down on these? I know in Michigan you can't get them anymore and they used to be in every gas station and corner market in town.

The sad thing is, there is a relatively benign mood altering plant out there, that if legal, would give many of these people seeking bath salts, etc something safe yet enjoyable to do. Just sayin.

While I knew about that, until this thread, I actually thought "incense" was real incense, just a special kind that got you high. I was under the impression that they were just dipping real incense in special chemicals or something.

This makes me a lot less suspicious of that one girl in school who always carried incense around with her--you could smell it was the real thing. Maybe she just stank.

My word. Between quitting smoking and pay-at-the pump, I've only actually walked into a convenience store maybe a dozen times in the last decade. It's like a whole world dropped off my radar. I often forget it still exists: the world didn't change, just which parts I spend time in.

That's certainly a legitimate point where the "fake pot" drugs like K2/Spice are concerned, anyway. The easy availability and (until recently) unlikelihood of failing a drug test would seem to be their only advantages over plain old marijuana. (From what I've read, anyway. Haven't had the slightest desire to try them.)

"Bath salts" provide a stimulant and/or hallucinogenic effect, though, so pot doesn't fully substitute. The media has tended to smear the synthetic cannabinoids and "bath salts" together when reporting on them, I guess because they were often sold by the same stores and both are alleged to cause bad reactions in some users, so sometimes it's not clear that they're different types of drugs with very different effects.

YMMV, but a lot of people I know/have known "just wanna get high" without regard to specifics. Stimulants, opiates, hallucinogens; the specifics don't matter, it is all in ease of acquisition.

I was confused when I first read a report of a guy who was arrested naked, in public after felching a goat. He claimed it was the Bath Salts.

Imagine my disappointment when all I had to show for my debauchery was a pleasent Mint Cucumber odor.

And I still have the damn goat.

Mephedrone was apparently so popular here in that brief period when it was legal that drug dealers were burning down head shops. I recall some of the headshops being open until 4am or so and huge queues for them from the clubbing crowds.

In my family, we laugh occasionally, claiming, "it's not a bong! It's a water pipe for fine tobacco!"

It astounds me that such equipment is still sold legally anywhere in the US, much less in head shops that are permanent brick-and-mortar locations with advertising and clientele.

Not too far from my house, there's a nasty-looking convenience store (the dreaded "Dan-D-Mart") that, amongst other things, sells "water pipes", as well as airsoft guns and replica medieval weapons like battle axes and flails.

Who shops there, Hawkman?

I'd imagine so. When these stories show up, they talk about the crazy things people do when high on bath salts. But I can't recall a single story that had an explanatory line of "this is a new synthetic drug that's being sold under the street name of 'bath salts'." They just talk about bath salts as if everyone's supposed to realize it's not the same thing as what you'd get from a beauty store.

When I first heard about people being high on bath salts, my reaction was "holy crap! How in the hell could bath salts affect you like that." My second reaction was "this is probably just some sort of joke. They're on PCP and everyone's just saying 'bath salts' because it's funny." and it took a few attempts at Googling before I hit upon exactly what this drug was. I imagine most people won't even go through that effort and just think "no more bath salts for me!"

Agreed. But human nature tends to flow towards the second rule of life - Never rule out stupidity.

It's the reason places like the Straight Dope and Snopes exist, to help those of us that are skeptics.

Yup, me also. Yet another example of a major failure of the news media. As a previous poster mentioned, it wouldn't take more than an extra second to say "The drug called bath salts". I did a bunch of googling before being able to find out that people were not using actual bath salts as drugs.

If this resulted in an increase in sales I doubt they'd be saying anything and would just be counting their good fortune selling additional product to wannabe drug addicts.
Drug dealers are now bagging up bath salts and selling to their used to wannabe but now are drug addicts. Representing it as cocain or meth we don't realize we have been taken until it's too late and dealer has our cash. Can't trust anyone these days. LOL
