The “bath salts” mentioned as a drug were marketed before being made illegal in some states. As for the face eater, here’s another story about that from the UK.
But drugs for sure. Here’s a link to another case.

I still have my doubts on this story, bath salts are synthetic THC which acts like weed but with the ability for you to overdose quite quickly.
This is being described as PCP, which is nothing like THC.
Why not? Lots of household chemicals can be dangerous if misused. And what is a “political control event”?
“Bath Salts” are something different than what you are thinking. It’s a street name for a new(ish) kind of drug. Go check wikipedia or sumptin’.
BTW, the man whose face was eaten was homeless.
As I understand it, this stuff isn’t actually “Bath Salts.” It’s a mixture of chemicals sold under the name intended as a recreational drug.
No idea why Drudge gave a siren for this story.
I said in another post that a student of mine’s father died because of these “bath salts” (in other words designer drugs mislabeled so the government wouldn’t ban them).
They found the guy (60 something) naked in the middle of a field. Went to a teacher/parent conference with the guy before he died about his son taking oxycontin. Apple doesn’t fall to far from the tree.
These aren’t the kind you get from Bed,Bath,and Beyond. They seriously mess you up....friend that worked in the ER said people abuse them they make you crazy and hallucinate for days. BAD BAD STUFF!
When asked about the danger level of this drug a medical expert said “Take all the worst side effects of pot, liquor, LSD, PCP, Cocaine, and Crystal Meth and put them all in one drug. That's Bath Salts.”
Bath Salts affects my brain
Feels like I’m goin insane
Strip naked get out this place
Excuse me while I eat your face
No one in the media is willing to see if there was a tie between this crime, committed by a black male, and the weekend “urban music festival” in Miami Beach, a STONE’S THROW from the causeway where this happened.
Was this guy at the festival? Did he buy any drugs there? Maybe he did, maybe not...but NO ONE in the media is asking.
All the Miami media can do is pretend “only” 228 arrests over the weekend is an improvement and shows just how civilized the “urban music” crowd is...
Is this why my wife can never find Calgon English Garden bath oil beads in the stores?
Yep, I believe it. I work as an RN in a hospital that serves as as the “county” hospital in our city. We basically get all the traumas and indigents and arrested folks suffering form acute incarceritis (meaning now that they’re under arrest they suddenly have chest pain). We have also had a few bath salt users. One was quite memorable. I couldn’t believe how much it took to put this man down, and I’ve seen a whole lot of crazy having worked in psych and then in emergency room. I can’t even say what this guy did because it’s unprintable. I’ll just say he was completely naked and did things that he will (hopefully) regret the rest of his life. He was way stronger than he should have been, and did not self-protect (didn’t hold back to prevent himself from getting harmed). He acted as if he didn’t even see, hear or feel us at any point, and he simply went from that to asleep after way more drugs than we would use for a moderate sedation to reduce a broken or dislocated limb. Bath Salts are crazy stuff, folks. After seeing what I’ve seen, as soon as I heard about the “zombie attack” my first suspicion was bath salts.
It’s not actually something one would use for bathing, that’s just a name, possibly related to how it’s sold online to evade regulation. While it’s compared to LSD, it affects people more like PCP in that they are strong and feel nothing and can’t be controlled except with extreme measures.
This is the core reason the WOD cannot ever succeed. People who really want to get high will, if they can’t get a hold of the “normal” stuff they’ll find something. Licking toads, bath salts, whippets, paint. Even if all the regular stuff completely disappears from within our border folks will still find a way to screw up their lives.
