It is not a typical diabetic topic, but it is something I think is important . . .

Yesterday A friend lost her life-long friend when her husband killed her after using a drug going by the name of bath salts. There are many names, but they are ALL poison.
From the articles I read the poison control center became aware of this in Sept 2010.
I want everyone to know how dangerous this is. Too many lives have been destroyed or snuffed out. Let others know of the danger. Several states have banned or made this an illegal drug, but not enough.
I read several news articles from google that explained what was happening. PLEASE check them out. It is important!

I watch Doctor Oz. He had a segment about this stuff. Many states are banning it. If you can, write to your government officials to voice your opions. Hopefully they can help get this stuff out of the stores. The way it is labled makes it "legal" but it doesn't make it safe. It can be called inscence also.

I have a bad experience with gov types. I have been told 'if we vote in the right people next time things will change' that was no help. And I wonder if our lady gov'nr knows her own rep is trying to get her kicked out. 'Sen and Congress critters' are worse. I have tried, none will get this fanilies votes.
The idea is worth following up. I may try a letter for the people and not their toadies.
Thank you
Angry in Az.

Thankyou pixsidust.
If you know what is happening report it. BUT DO NOT ENDANGER YOURSELF BY DOING SO!
I pray for all of you and your families. Please get help if you need it.
Don't let drugs, and I include booze, destroy another life.
God bless all

Sad and serious stuff. If you have a family member or friend using drugs " "Stop them anyway you can" is what Carroll O'Connor of All In The family fame said in a commercial after his son, also an actor committed suicide high on drugs. So Speak out, "Stop them anyway you can"

I will never understand this. Thank you for taking the time out to teach me something new and I am forever sorry for your friend and will keep you in my prayers.

Thank you for the prayers, and understanding. This is not what I served my counry for. I don't want this for my family. Please pass the word. We need strong but just laws to get rid of this poison.

Incredible!! Certainly learned a new one today. Thanks, James for the websites..I just checked them out.

Thank you;
I'm glad that this one was noticed. If I hadn't checked with my bipolardisorderconnect site I wouldn't have known. Spread the word. Ask to make it illegal to sell the product. Not the legal salts, but the modified poison.

Thank you Guardianstone for bringing this up. I really had no idea!

I looked up and read some of the google hits on bath salts:

All I can say is WOW. Folks fon't have enough pain & trouble so they go looking for it. Wow!

Thank you James;
We can always depend on you to help find the important information. I wanted to go into detail and give sites, but I spent most of yesterday in tears for a woman I never knew.
She was too young (any age is too young to be killed) and had so much more to give to the world.
I am a member of bipolardisorderconnect (a sister site) and the discussion is found under bath salts.
I am bipolar and have 2 bro-in-laws that are also. I hope to get the word out to all. I don't want to hear that any of my 'family' has had a problem with no warning.
God's blessings
Thanks for answering realsis's question. Snorted, inhaled, and injected were listed so far.

I believe it is smoked or inhaled/sniffed like cocaine. There are so many forms of this stuff out there. Inscence is another name it is sold under. I know some states are banning it so write to your local government. Since we are old enough to vote and the kids are not we may be able to get it out of the local convience and corner stores.

Bath salts go by many names. They are inhaled, smoked, snorted, injected and mixed with water and drunk.
This is poison. How many more must die?

It's snorted like cocaine according to the articles. Take a look at the links I've posted.

In the Google search I got they even had websites which gave reviews of the "best" bath salts. (of course I didn't post those - but the sites are available).
