Synthetic Meth Hits East Idaho

(EAST IDAHO)  —  A synthetic form of methamphetamine known as “Bath Salts” is a growing problem in eastern Idaho.  Idaho State Police say the drug is so powerful that it has the potential to cause extreme violence and suicidal thoughts.  They say the drug is currently unregulated like the synthetic form of marijuana known as “spice” and is much more dangerous than meth.  The recent attack involving a Miami man eating on his victim’s face is believed to have been caused by the same drug.

    Bath salts aren’t a type of meth, they’re drugs related to it.  It usually refers to methylone or MDPV, which are actually more closely related to ecstasy.  Not only that, but meth is already synthetic.  It doesn’t matter whether or not it’s synthetic anyway.  There are plenty of natural drugs that are just as dangerous.  I’m sick of all of these sensationalist articles written by reporters who haven’t done any research.
