"Bath salts" banned in Louisiana

LIVINGSTON, LA (WAFB) - It has been called the "poor man's meth" known as a legal way to get high. Today Governor Bobby Jindal signed an emergency rule making fake "bath salts" illegal. The synthetic drug is sold online and at gas station stores.

It is the first time something like this has been done. Jindal says the chemicals in this fake "bath salt" are now considered a schedule one drug, meaning not for medicinal purposes, but having high abuse potential.

Deputies in Livingston Parish wasted no time hitting several stores after the governor's announcement. They say they knew where the stuff was being sold, now they can get it off the streets.

"Whatever kind of bath salt you got, put it right here," said one Livingston deputy. 9 News rode along with Livingston deputies as they began confiscating the drugs. Livingston Parish deputies have known gas station stores have been selling the synthetic drugs by the packet. Now they can take them off the shelves.


"Therefore making it illegal to possess, manufacture or distribute these products in the state of Louisiana," said Governor Jindal. "This is a growing threat...some are saying it's greater than crystal meth in their communities."


At Rayburn's Grocery, in Satsuma there were six different brands of the "bath salt" for sale behind the counter. Each around 250 milligrams per packet for $20 to $45 dollars each.

The drug is said to cause the same high as cocaine or ecstasy, and are ingested the same way as other drugs. Patients have been treated for paranoia, hallucinations and many report suicidal thoughts.
Walter Reed, District Attorney for the 22 JDC, says three people in Louisiana have taken their own life. "A mother in Minden, Louisiana told me her son hung himself," Reed said.

Livingston's law enforcement is asking stores to hand the stuff over voluntarily. At one shop, it took some convincing before the store owner complied.


"It's a felony to possess the stuff. If you have any around and we find out, you going to jail for it," said a deputy to one store owner. After hearing that, the owner went outside and returned with ten packets of "Cloud9" - another brand of the drugs. The owner told 9 News, he only sold it because customers asked him to.


Deputies say the one thing they want to find out now is where and from who these stores are getting the drugs.


If you have the drugs in your possession, you can face up to 30 years in prison. The governor says they'll need to pass additional legislation, in case manufacturers try to switch the chemicals and continue selling the drug.


Legal highs you people say? Well with the publicity they get.. they won't be legal much longer.

I think these things can be used somewhat responsibly by someone with the will-power to do such, and the knowledge of what's in them - but my main problem with these things is the fact that majority of people who buy them don't care what's in them, they just want to get as fucked up as possible.

They take these things without doing any research, going by advice of how fucked up others got and end up screwing themselves over. Then they give the research chemical scene a terrible name.

I gotta agree with you though, making these legal blends illegal is probably a good thing.

I live in Louisiana. I have tried it once. It wasn't that great. I was fucked up for like 20 minutes. It kind of felt like a cross between being drunk and rolling.

Bath Salts are not all that the hype makes it up to be. People told me it was synthetic cocaine, all that I ever noticed was that people were more social and talkative on it.

They're talking about mephedrone, methylone, and to a lesser extent MDPV and related chemicals, though the latter are usually sold under a fertilizer name.

I don't care what you want where, I don't want tweakers everywhere, but I would prefer that to fascism. If they went teaching kinds about how stupid amphetamines can be instead of sending people to prison for chemicals, they'd spend less money and do more good.

MDPV worse than crank? probly... Mephedrone? methinx not.... Either way, it's not their fucking right to dictate what people take.

There's lots of people who kill themselves all the time, for all sorts of reasons. because 3 people who engaged in high risk activities killed themselves, doesn't mean anything about mephedrone causing it.

Fascist fucks.

*edit* the comments on that story are great, especially if they are by locals, and not HF users

I hope they keep their hands off the good psychedelics that are left. I will be pissed the fuck off the day I find any of my favorites in a store being sold as dick rub or god knows what.
the dick rub doesnt sound all that bad lol...should have used another example haha

Yeah, these are the one set of drugs I'm not sad to see banned. Like someone said up there, research chemicals in the hands of the average member of the general public is not a good idea. Not to mention, someone who IS responsible and experienced with RCs can't even know what the hell exactly is in the stuff without a GC/MS. Not that I was a huge fan of the cathinones et al. to begin with but it always irks me when something that we as a community try to keep under wraps but it inevitably falls into the wrong hands and ruins it for the rest of us, as well as hurting those who use the stuff irresponsibly and without knowledge.

I think Salvia is following close behind... another one I won't shed a tear to see banned (at least to the general public - it will be a bummer when it becomes unavailable to those who want to use it properly and responsibly). Salvia is not a toy and should not be readily available to any 16 year old looking for a "weed substitute."
