South Carolina Confronts Bath Salt Issues

Fake bath salts, a designer drug which has recently swept through southern states such as Louisiana, are now starting to show up in South Carolina.

One local South Carolina doctor stated that he thinks “fake bath salt” abuse may get out of control in South Carolina in coming years. That being said, the official statement from the South Carolina Department of Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Services says that fake bath salt abuse hasn’t hit their radar yet.

The truth is that there have been a dozen bath salt-related overdoses in Charleston emergency rooms in the past month.

Symptoms of bath salt overdose include skyrocketing heart rate, hallucinations, seizures, psychosis, and even death. The drug leads to cardiac arrest.

One of the problems with fake bath salts is that they cannot be detected by normal drug screens. The drugs are still legal in the state of South Carolina.

The major issue caused by designer drugs is that they don’t fit into the definitions on the books for “illegal drugs” and so are able to be distributed through stores and online. This is a major health hazard for South Carolina residents. As has been seen in other sates, bath salt abuse can skyrocket almost overnight.

    Why can’t SC follow suit on this?!!!!!
    Are our lawmakers really this slow????
    it’s a big issue that needs to be addressed….
    and btw whoever posted this article, it’d be great if you could spell CAROLINA right…. haha.
    A nationwide blanket law should be added to the analog act…. it may hurt to many people if we wait for each individual state to ban it…..

    or atleast a clause added to the analog act to criminalize these bath salts….
    I know many people that these supposed “bath salts” have affected…. including friends…. I myself have tried them they are very addictive, and too strong to be sold over a smoke shop counter!!!!!
