FALLS CHURCH, Va. -- Navy Medicine announced the launch of a new informational video and poster regarding the health risks and dangers of the synthetic amphetamine known as "bath salts" and other designer drugs, Dec. 20.
The public service announcement video and poster will be distributed for display throughout the fleet and are available for download at http://www.med.navy.mil/Pages/Syntheticdrugs.aspx.
The new media products focus on the dangers of bath salts and are part of the long-term awareness and deterrence campaign Navy Medicine launched last year on synthetic and designer drugs. This effort is also part of an overall Navy communications plan with partners at the Naval Personnel Command and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service and other commands.
The education and awareness campaign from Navy Medicine supports the Navy's zero-tolerance policy on designer drug use, as well as highlights the real and present risks of bath salts.

Anyone who’d want to do such drugs should eat a pound of bath salts.
Let nature take its course, and the quicker the better.
I never thought I would say this but what happened to the good old days of marijuana ,cocaine, heroin. None of these 3 are as bad as bath salts or this synthetic marijuana and “incense” as well as the meth that is going around. I’ve seen the results first hand and I can say that my state of Louisiana has led the nation in the fight against these new designer drugs. La. was the first state to outlaw the so called bath salts.
Well, I feel like a complete moron; all this time, when I heard a repot about someone going nuts after eating bath salts, they had actually eaten that pastel rock salt stuff my great Aunt Alice kept in a glass jar next to her tub. (I am 29 and used to think I had a clue...my young teenaged children have cured me of that, though!) ;)
If amphetamines weren't banned the way they have been since the mid eighties, people would just go to their doctor and get them the same way they did for years.
Look at how many people died as a result of the nanny state taking away good speed and replacing it with Fen-Fen, which in turn damaged heart valves. (But at least they weren't taking that devil speed that doctors had been safely prescribing for years!)
hmm, spell check missed “repot” for report, and I missed the beginning of the clause, meaning to say, “I THOUGHT they hd actually eaten bath salts...”
Bottom Line: The drug laws give the government power. Government never gives up power. Voluntarily. At some point we are going to have to address that.
Some of these things are labeled and packaged as if they were candy
so you want to bring back speed and amphetamines ... for the kids right?
I agree. I also think that they should make mandatory the cause of death be published in the local newspaper. And I would include all drug and alcohol related deaths. Presently the end results of stupidity are hidden away to protect the rights of the victim and family. Society should have some rights in these cases and they should be publicized. Instead of Mary Jo or Billy Bob passed on, it should read Mary Jo or Billy Bob stupidly ingested bath salts that ate away what little brains she/he had resulting in death.
Under what pretense would people using bath salts go to the doctor for drugs?
Doctors take an oath to civilized society to medically heal people, not to supply drugs so people can abuse them to get high.
I just could not understand how anyone would eat, snort or smoke that vile stuff. Now that I have actually figured out that the new Bath Salt's is a term for a synthetic drug, I am thinking that using the old style bath salts in the same manner would actually cause less harm.
Yeah - With a prescription.
Supposedly the kids were why they took them away. How's that working out?
