The Drug Enforcement Agency of the United States has recently banned the three chemicals found in the designer drug “bath salts.” The emergency stopping power was applied to the manufacture and sale of mephedrone, methylenedioxypyrovalerone and methylone. 

Bath salts are marketed as “not for human consumption” avoiding drug laws, but their abuse has become widespread to the point of government intervention.

The emergency ban was activated by the DEA for the next 12 months to give The Department of Health and Human Services time to asses the situation. The chemicals have been placed under class one, the D.E.A.’s most restrictive category. This classification is reserved for substances with high potential for abuse and no accepted use under medical supervision. Other schedule one drugs are LSD, ecstasy, and heroin.

The manufacture and sale of these chemicals is now illegal in the United States.

However, it seems that the law hasn’t yet stopped Amazon.com.

While writing the article Bath Salts Addiction I searched Amazon for “bath salts.” The fourth entry on the first page was for “Ivory Dove.” Ivory Dove’s only description was “500 mg.” The packaging was pictured and looks like common bath salts drug packaging. The list price was $48.99 with free shipping.

There are videos on youtube.com with instruction on purchasing bath salts from amazon.com.

The DEA may not have shut down the sale of bath salts on the Internet or in stores, but the government censor of the chemicals is raising public awareness of the danger. Hopefully the trend will start to wane. However with underground chemists finding it easy to get around written chemically specific drug laws there will be new designer drugs on the market soon.
