(FULTON, Miss. — When Neil Brown got high on dangerous chemicals sold as bath salts, he took his skinning knife and slit his face and stomach
repeatedly. Brown survived, but authorities say others haven't been so lucky after snorting, injecting or smoking powders with such
innocuous-sounding names as Ivory Wave, Red Dove and Vanilla Sky.
Some say the effects of the powders are as powerful as abusing methamphetamine. Increasingly, law enforcement agents and poison control centers say
the advertised bath salts with complex chemical names are an emerging menace in several U.S. states where authorities talk of banning their sale."

I have never heard of this before! Does anyone know if these are just regular bath salts or a drug packaged as bath salts? I mean if they are just
bath salts, and people are snorting them to get high, should they be made illegal? If people started to drink hairspray to get high would they try to
regulate that too?
I have a hangnail that got infected and I'm soaking it in hot water and epsom salt. I not going to smoke it, snort it or inject it, just soaking in
it! I promise.
