Synthetic drugs continue to be a main topic of discussion for law enforcement officials across the country—particularly in the form of bath salts.
It was bath salts that the suspect in Florida was allegedly on when he was shot by police while attempting to eat a homeless man’s face off earlier this year. Christian County Sheriff’s Captain Chris Miller was one of the featured speakers at this morning’s Pennyrile Regional Citizens Corps Council meeting and said the epidemic is out-pacing the methamphetamine problem.
Captain Miller says good laws banning the substances have been passed in Kentucky and a few other states to slow the problem down, but parents should keep an eye out to be sure their children haven’t found away to get the products.
Traditional brands of bath salts do not fall into the synthetic drugs category, as the drug makers only call their product bath salts to allow them to sell the product legally in some states.
