What Are Bath Salts?
These drugs have nothing to do with real bath salts — or “jewelry cleaner,” or “plant food,” or “phone screen cleaner,” which they’re also sometimes called, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
Bath Salts are substituted cathinones, which are synthetic, concentrated versions of the stimulant chemical in Khat. Methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV), mephedrone and methylone are the chemicals most often found in Bath Salts. Synthetic cathinone products marketed as “Bath Salts” should not be confused with products that people use during bathing. These bathing products do not contain mind-altering ingredients.
