Rub-A-Dub-Dub: Snorting Salts from the Tub

I've written about this subject before. Many blogs ago.
However, the subject came back to mind today as some one told me about concern for her son who was in the hospital for snorting bath salts.
Yes... bath salts.
The powdery,  salt-like stuff you sprinkle in your bath tub, under the faucet, as the water fills.
The way it's suppose to work, you sink into your salted bath tub and all the stress is sucked out of you.
I suppose, in the tub, some soakers call bath salts bliss.
Bath Salt Snorters also call bath salt "bliss" because of the buzz.
Another street name for bath salts is "ivory wave."
You can buy it in its own little tin, it's perfectly legal and and perfectly destructive.
I've been told its a meth-like high that last for days.
And like meth, its effects are physically and psychologically devastating.

Never ceases to amaze me what people will do to get high.... when in fact, high is such an illusion/delusion.
It's better to roll with the punches, go with the flow, feel the pain, experience the gain and get through life with your head clear.

Because it's hard enough to survive this crazy life with a fully operative brain.
You're at a real disadvantage when you move through this altered world in an altered state. 
I get that people are in psychological, physical, emotional pain.
I get that drugs legitimately  help some, actually so many -- both legal and illegal.
What I don't get are some of the drugs of choice people choose.

However, narrowing the focus a bit...
Bath Salts?
Are you kidding me?
They are psychoactive chemicals, they alter brain chemistry and no one knows why or how.
They are addictive, dangerous, yet legally accessible to minors and currently as trendy as Ecstacy was in its hey-day.

We ony get one shot at this existence called life.
Adding bath salts to your nasal cavity and brain doesn't help matters.
Mostly this is running rampant among kids,
However an older generation is moving in as well.
Besides the You Tube below, here's a link to article about bath salts if you'd like to investigate this one further.
Meantime, might be a good idea to leave baths salts out of guest baskets.
