Drug Made Illegal in the Peach State

State bill 93 was signed into effect Monday (5/16) and bans the commonly referred to "bath salts" from being sold legally.

Agents say the drugs have stronger hallucinogenic properties
than even methamphetamine.

Says Thomasville-Thomas County Drug Squad Commander Kevin Lee, "We interview people that's [sic] been on meth for years and coke for years and they'll just tell you, this is the worst stuff, man. It just makes them extremely, extremely violent, you hallucinate."

Agents say they'll spend the next few days reading the new bill to understand exactly what it entails.

Drug enforcement agencies in the Florida panhandle have also taken measures to ban the once-available drugs.

    "Cause I said So" you've got to be kidding me!! Did you fall out the trailer and bump your head? Can you imagine the chaos your idea would create. Listen dude, lay off the "chronic" and whatever else your own and think before you speak. You don't have a clue as to what your talking about! God did not give you the right to spout out such stupidity!

    I can't believe this wasn't illegal already... "Methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV) is a psychoactive drug with stimulant properties which acts as a norepinephrine-dopamine reuptake inhibitor (NDRI)." It's not one of those 'fun' drugs, it doesn't make you mellow or let you see shapes on the wall, it's dangerous like meth and cocaine and highly addictive. OF COURSE this should be illegal!

    Why don't you people do alittle reseach?This is not just any old bathsalt.IT IS A DRUG CALLED "BATH SALT" that is very dangerous.It is not like going to Bath and Beyond and buying some bath salts and snorting it,It is a drug.Just like "coke" is illegal,that does not mean that you can't still go to a store and buy a coke and drink it.

    Legalize free choice! It's none of anyones business in a "free" society. Car wrecks kill and maim millions each year. A cure for cancer was found in a Canadian lab! Further and further we slide into this police nanny state. Floods and nuclear waste in the Mississippi, Barry Soetoro is is sending our troops to another war and this is the big issues and the next false front in this failed war on drugs. The War on Drugs is just a war on free choice and it's feeding the prison industrial complex costing Americans billions and destroying lives and families far worse than any drug could ever do. Legalize Freedom! Land Of the Fee, Home Of the Slave. We are not animals to be controlled. We have god given rights!

    What are bath salts? I have always been told to soak in Epsom Salts. Have I been high all of these years. That is why I hallucinate and read things like our made was paid 68,000 dollars for a vote and our county commissioner only committed 206 counts of election fraud. I must of soaked way too much.
