The Dangers of Bath Salts

To young people, bath salts can appear to be safer than similar illicit drugs because of the packaging and because they are newer. Some of the packaging names of these synthetic drugs include "Ivory Wave," "Purple Wave," Vanilla Sky," "Bliss" and many others.

The DEA plans to make possessing and selling these chemicals, or products that contain them, illegal in the United States.The emergency action will remain in effect for at least a year, during which time the government is expected to call for permanent control of the drugs.
