Bath Salts Urine Test
Not to be confused with Epsom salts or other bathing additives, bath salts are synthetic stimulants that are structurally and pharmacologically similar to amphetamine, methamphetamine, and MDMA (“Ecstasy”). Bath Salts are often available in drug paraphernalia stores and on the Internet under a variety of names, such as “Ivory Wave,” and “Vanilla Sky,” “Purple Wave,” “Bliss,” “Cloud Nine,” “Ocean Snow,” and “White Lighting.”
These designer drugs are sold in plastic or foil packages, in the form of powder, crystals, capsules or pills. They are often labeled “not for human consumption” in an effort to circumvent federal narcotics laws.Commonly taken by inhalation, injection, or oral ingestion, bath salts produce reported effects that can include severe agitation, psychosis, paranoia, anxiety, and other stimulant-like effects. Some deaths have also been reported related to bath salt use.
