Grant Leonard was arrested Saturday morning in St. Croix County for driving under the influence of bath salts.

So called “Bath Salts” are a synthetic form of cocaine that is legally, in most states, being sold at head shops.

For curiosity I tried to taste a chunk of bath salt to see what it tasted like and it was the most bitter thing I have ever tried. I also cannot imagine snorting salt.
At least they’re cleaner in mug shots than paint huffers.
Well now I feel like a real idiot.
Not really “bath salts”, it’s a drug the dealers have marketed as “Bath Salts” to dodge the War On Some Drugs. There are real bath salts for the bath, but the Bath Salts here cost $20/gram. And if you look at the Erowid Experience Files, they are not too good for you.

that was epsom salts
This type of synthetic drug, marketed as Bath Salts were recently banned in New Jersey after a notorious case in my little town where a man using this drug beat his girlfriend to death. He blames the bath salts, of course. The fact that he had been in trouble with the local authorities consistently for the last six years indicates nothing...
They are illegal in Florida.
Taking away those bath salts will lead to a life of grime.
