Ivory Wave - How dangerous are bath salts?
My friend is using bath salts regularly to get high and I am worried about her. I showed her the article about the flesh eating bacteria but she says that it’s only a problem if you inject. She only snorts. Is she in danger?

There is not a great deal of information available. But the science behind the chemicals present in bath salts is clear. They are very dangerous to ingest in any way.

Obviously bath salts are synthetic materials not meant for human consumption. Unfortunately with most addictive substances the long term effects will not be known until too many people are negatively affected.
