I also thought that bath salts were for the bath.
However, I would hold judgement until seeing a picture of the policeman(woman) this weirdo was attempting to eat.
“Bath Salts” are NOT literally Bath Salts. That is the name they sell under in an attempt to be legal. They were sold out of “head shops” along with some other synthetic non drug drugs. They are designer drugs deceptively marketed.
“to avoid being controlled by the Medicines Act, designer drugs such as mephedrone have been described as “bath salts” or “plant food”, despite the compounds having no history of being used for these purposes. Due to these inaccurate descriptions of products, it is possible that selling the compounds under these descriptions could be illegal under the Trade Descriptions Act.
In the USA, similar descriptions have been used to describe mephedrone as well as methylone and methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV). Combined with labeling that they are “not for human consumption”, these descriptions are an attempt to skirt the Federal Analog Act which forbids drugs that are substantially similar to already classified drugs from being sold for human use. In addition, MDMA and methamphetamine have also been sold labeled as bath salts.”
