WHAT ARE BATH SALTS?
Bath salts are a designer drug made from combining the synthetic chemicals MDPV, methylone, mephedrone, and pyrovalerone, though many other ingredients can be included. Think of bath salts as a combination of LSD and Meth.
Bath salts, much like Meth and Ecstasy are manufactured by unlicensed street chemists, therefore the potency, ingredients, and quality differ from batch to batch.
