Bath Salt Drug Testing

Also known as bath salts, synthetic cathinones are man-made drugs that are similar in chemical composition to a powerful stimulant found in the khat plant. These substances have been around for quite some time. It isn’t until only recently that we began to hear the outbreak of news stories featuring people who were seemingly possessed, removing all their clothes and creating havoc in public settings. In one case, a man even chewed the face off of another.

The Trouble with Regulation

The DEA is doing what they can to keep up with the proper regulation of these substances. The trouble is, once one recipe is made illegal, another can be created to get around the new rules. It’s a vicious cycle that can seem impossible to overcome. If you think someone may be using these dangerous substances, a few signs of bath salts use include:

  • Paranoia
  • Increased sociability
  • Hallucinations
  • Panic attacks
  • Extreme agitation or violent behavior
