Ivory Wave bath salts -- another way to get high
The Standard Examiner ^ | 01/01/2011 | Jessica Miller

Posted on 01/02/2011 7:20:52 AM PST by Utah Binger

OGDEN -- A new product being marketed as bath salts but can be used similar to cocaine is slowly making its way through the Top of Utah, law enforcement officials say.

The product goes by many names, but is most commonly known as Ivory Wave. It is packaged as bath salts, but a quick web search shows many are snorting or injecting the product to get a high similar to, or even more intense than, cocaine.

Weber-Morgan Drug Strike Force Lt. Darin Parke said his officers have seen the drug recently while executing search warrants.

"We've seen it during our raids," he said. "It's not illegal, so people are pretty open about it."

Parke said while officers have seen instances of it, they haven't received a lot of information from many people about it.

Ogden Police Lt. Scott Conley said they have begun seeing the bath salts as well, but not in high numbers.

"We're hearing about it, and seeing it a little bit," he said.

The Associated Press reports that four Utahns have been hospitalized as of last week because of the effects of the drug.

How does a reporter write this story and never say what the chemicals in Ivory Wave are?

from wiki - “Samples of the drug have been reported to contain the substituted cathinone derivative MDPV as well as the local anesthetic lignocaine.[4] Additionally, Ivory Wave has also been speculated to contain WIN 35,428 and Pentylone,[5][6][7][8] though the presence of these chemicals has yet to be demonstrated.”

Just amazes me the stupid things people do to get high. I have a gas well across the street from me. And like all gas wells they have a large overflow tank to hold the contaminates. The smell is horrible. Anyway about 8 years ago a teenager was found dead with his head in the hatch. He was sniffing the fumes to get high and passed out and died from asphyxiation.

Yet another example of the futility of trying to keep people from getting high/drunk/stoned.

Ivory Wave is readily available to buy in Scottish “Head Shops”, and also through a number of unregulated online outlets. One – a European website – boasted that the drug would “blow your mind” despite warning that “it is strong for sure”. Jim Sherval, a specialist in public health for NHS Lothian warned that people could “never be certain” what was contained in these “legal highs”.

He said: “The chemicals used in legal highs change all the time so people can never be certain what they are actually taking and what the effects might be. “In most cases, the products have not been tested, so little is known about how toxic they are. “It is important that people understand that just because a substance is legal or claimed to be legal does not mean that it is safe.

“We need to get across the message that these legal highs pose a real danger.” Lesley Hinds, health spokeswoman for the Labour group at City of Edinburgh Council, added: “This is very worrying. “We need to be careful not to glamorise these names, but it is important that people are aware of the dangers because at this stage we don’t know what long-term impacts it could have.”

It is a special problem in Utah because of their strict guidelines regarding tobacco, caffeine and alcohol in the Mormon church. Many folks I know use cocaine and drugs like this one as it is not spelled out specifically in their "Word of Wisdom".

Just run it through your coffee grinder first. Try not to take the whole bar all at once.

This is in Florida also. Sold as bath salts in a packet so small you there wouldn’t be enough to soak a finger. Also pot sold as incense. I believe this was made illegal in the last couple of weeks.
The bath salts are sold in “tobacco shops” and even 7-11 type stores.
“Bath salts” being injected is pretty scary stuff.

Your temple recommends are in no danger from the Ivory Wave!

Sad, but how do they know? Did he leave a "getting high" note instead of a suicide note?

Folks who want to get high will get high.

And that fact makes the war on drugs a joke.

All laws against drugs do is put ENORMOUS sums of money into the mix...therefore injecting violence.

I take a somewhat Libertarian approach to drugs. Make them legal and let the crazy ones kill themselves.

Case in point: Alcohol. Some of us know when to use moderation. Others, well you know the rest of the story.

How do they get those 'guidelines' from the following?? 
 
Clara would yell, "Where's the CAFFINE??"

 
 
THE
DOCTRINE AND COVENANTS
OF THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS
SECTION 89
 
Revelation given through Joseph Smith the Prophet, at Kirtland, Ohio, February 27, 1833. HC 1: 327–329. As a consequence of the early brethren using tobacco in their meetings, the Prophet was led to ponder upon the matter; consequently he inquired of the Lord concerning it. This revelation, known as the Word of Wisdom, was the result. The first three verses were originally written as an inspired introduction and description by the Prophet.
 
1–9, Use of wine, strong drinks, tobacco, and hot drinks proscribed; 10–17, Herbs, fruits, flesh, and grain are ordained for the use of man and of animals; 18–21, Obedience to gospel law, including the Word of Wisdom, brings temporal and spiritual blessings.
 
  1 A aWord OF Wisdom, for the benefit of the council of high priests, assembled in Kirtland, and the church, and also the saints in Zion—
  2 To be sent greeting; not by commandment or constraint, but by revelation and the aword of wisdom, showing forth the order and bwill of God in the temporal salvation of all saints in the last days—
  3 Given for a principle with apromise, adapted to the capacity of the bweak and the weakest of all csaints, who are or can be called saints.
  4 Behold, verily, thus saith the Lord unto you: In consequence of aevils and designs which do and will exist in the hearts of bconspiring men in the last days, I have cwarned you, and forewarn you, by giving unto you this word of wisdom by revelation—
  5 That inasmuch as any man adrinketh bwine or strong drink among you, behold it is not good, neither meet in the sight of your Father, only in assembling yourselves together to offer up your sacraments before him.
  6 And, behold, this should be wine, yea, apure wine of the grape of the vine, of your own make.
  7 And, again, astrong drinks are not for the belly, but for the washing of your bodies.
  8 And again, tobacco is not for the abody, neither for the belly, and is not good for man, but is an herb for bruises and all sick cattle, to be used with judgment and skill.
  9 And again, hot drinks are not for the body or belly.
  10 And again, verily I say unto you, all wholesome aherbs God hath ordained for the constitution, nature, and use of man—
  11 Every herb in the season thereof, and every fruit in the season thereof; all these to be used with aprudence and bthanksgiving.
  12 Yea, aflesh also of bbeasts and of the fowls of the air, I, the Lord, have ordained for the use of man with thanksgiving; nevertheless they are to be used csparingly;
  13 And it is pleasing unto me that they should not be aused, only in times of winter, or of cold, or bfamine.
  14 All agrain is ordained for the use of man and of beasts, to be the staff of life, not only for man but for the beasts of the field, and the fowls of heaven, and all wild animals that run or creep on the earth;
  15 And athese hath God made for the use of man only in times of famine and excess of hunger.
  16 All grain is good for the afood of man; as also the bfruit of the vine; that which yieldeth fruit, whether in the ground or above the ground—
  17 Nevertheless, wheat for man, and corn for the ox, and oats for the horse, and rye for the fowls and for swine, and for all beasts of the field, and barley for all useful animals, and for mild drinks, as also other grain.
  18 And all saints who remember to keep and do these sayings, walking in obedience to the commandments, ashall receive bhealth in their navel and marrow to their bones;
  19 And shall afind bwisdom and great ctreasures of dknowledge, even hidden treasures;
  20 And shall arun and not be bweary, and shall walk and not faint.
  21 And I, the Lord, give unto them a promise, that the adestroying angel shall bpass by them, as the children of Israel, and not slay them. Amen.

Only if it's HOT!!

Cooling to near freezing with ice and perhaps by a few drops of lemon juice has shown to be quite effective in removing ANY dangerous properties that the EVIL TEA PLANT had in store for folks.
