Bath Salts

A while back our city passed an ordinance outlawing "fake weed", ie K2. Now, I am reading about the rise in popularity of bath salts. Have any cities passed ordinances outlawing them? If so, can you post info about that city. I would like to proposs a similar ordinance with my town, and it would be easier if I could duplicate the efforts of another city.

It's not nice to mess with mother nature or her program of natural selection.

Not a city, the state did it.

We had such a sudden and large influx of it almost overnight. Within a few weeks the Gov. used his "special" powers and bypassed legislation and made it illegal.

Several counties in my area have passed ordinances against bath salts.

Lot's of incidents involving people on bath salts here lately.

I don't know of any local cities or counties banning it here but here is an EMS article about it that could help further the cause.

I think it's a pretty sure bet that anyone that would lick a frog to get high WILL find some other kind of poison to kill themselves with. Outlawing this, that, and the other is a losing game.

Are they planning to form a "bathtub enforcement" department or will it just go hand-in-hand with the "dripping faucet" enforcement?

I suppose there are worse things.

You do understand that "bath salts" does not involve the use of actual bath salt (although it is sometimes labeled as such), but rather a synthetic hallucinogen called methylenedioxypyrovalerone, right?

No, I don't... Try to remember, I'm from the "Killer Weed" and "Reefer Madness" generation. Most of the stuff the current crop of kids deal with either didn't exist or was unknown in most of the US the last time I was checking pockets for "contraband".
