Meth addicts using bath salts to get high?

What’s next? Who was the genius who discovered this!? According to NY Daily News, junkies are now using bath salts to extract dangerous chemicals all in the name of getting high.

Some say the effects of the powders are as powerful as abusing methamphetamine. Increasingly, law enforcement agents and poison control centers say the advertised bath salts with complex chemical names are an emerging menace in several U.S. states where authorities talk of banning their sale.

From the Deep South to California, emergency calls are being reported over-exposure to the stimulants the powders often contain: mephedrone and methylenedioxypyrovalerone, also known as MDPV.

Sold under such names as Ivory Wave, Bliss, White Lightning and Hurricane Charlie, the chemicals can cause hallucinations, paranoia, rapid heart rates and suicidal thoughts, authorities say. The chemicals are in products sold legally at convenience stores and on the Internet as bath salts and even plant foods. However, they aren’t necessarily being used for the purposes on the label.

Mississippi lawmakers this week began considering a proposal to ban the sale of the powders, and a similar step is being sought in Kentucky. In Louisiana, the bath salts were outlawed by an emergency order after the state’s poison center received more than 125 calls in the last three months of 2010 involving exposure to the chemicals.

The stimulants aren’t regulated by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, but are facing federal scrutiny. Law officers say some of the substances are being shipped from Europe, but origins are still unclear.

New! Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme

I love this mascara! The pictures don’t do it justice but it looks like I am wearing false eyelashes when I use the new Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Mascara. It glides on super thick and rich (but not clumpy) and leaves my lashes looking amazing. Wears great all day with no fading or flaking.

Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara

Lashes seem to multiply, magnify, grow to extremes.

Three different high-volume fibers create audacious, false-lash effects.

THE FORMULA
Extreme Bold Volume™ formula is a blend of three high-volume fibers in a mousse-light base.

Acts like lash extensions multiplying and growing the look of lashes. Fortified with conditioning Lash-Advancing Vitamin Complex.

THE THREE FIBERS
Unique interlocking fibers build volume + length
Hollow fibers create massive volume, without weight
Ball fibers fill in and fill out even the sparsest lashes

THE BRUSH
Oversized BrushComber Extreme™ with two types of bristles-flexible fibers carry maximum formula; solid fibers comb and separate for clump-free definition.

THE COLOR IMPACT
Prismatic pearls intensify pigment and luster. Eyes look brighter, wider, more seductive.
