Police warn that “bath salts” are dangerous

Posted by wlpo on July 21, 2011

While they sound harmless and are legal, drug officers want “Bath Salts” regulated.

Tri-Dent Chairman Thomas Smith says the salts are resulting in violent reactions which lead to hospitalizations and sometimes death.  He says there’s been an increase in bath salt usage since December in the Illinois Valley.

Smith says a gram of Bath Salts is going for the same price as illegal drugs.  He says users have claimed the high they get from Bath Salts is better than illegal drugs.

Smith says members of Tri-Dent are working with area mayors and council members to pass ordinances regulating Bath Salts.  The Illinois House has passed a bill banning harmful chemicals in Bath Salts.
