Bath Salts? Seriously? Yes, I'm dwelling.

OK, I just did a bit of research on these bath salts being blamed for the lingerie/goat tragedy... These aren't standard bath salts like we spa-lovers are so fond of. "Bath salts" is merely a nickname for methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV), a psychoactive drug with stimulant qualities. It's known to cause some seriously ka-ray-zay behavior for days on end, and gobs of health problems. Click here to read a pretty creepy news story about the stuff. 

Here's the kicker: it's legal. You can purchase it at head shops, convenience stores and other retail outlets. Apparently, the stuff's frequently located near the energy drinks. It's the new meth, and it's available everywhere... while marijuana remains largely illegal... go figure. 

Bath salts are sold under many names, including: 

  • Serenity Now
  • Ivory Wave
  • Vanilla Sky
  • Bonsai Grow
  • Lovey Dovey
  • Euphoria
  • White Lightning
  • Cloud 9
  • Aura
  • Blue Silk

Don't throw out the bathwater just yet. Things are a' changing. Today, the Florida Senate unanimously voted to ban MDPV/bath salts. Yay, Florida! Lord knows you've got your hands full of crazy over there, anyway. The last thing you need is even crazier crazies, beloved Sunshine State. Get those bath salts out, pronto

This better not jack up the price of my treasured AHAVA fabulousness, that's all I have to say. Any junkie that comes between me and a deluxe soak is in for a world o' pain. I will choke bitches out. Watch it!
