not sure what you guys know about "Bath Salts" but they have been deemed illegal here in Illinois recently

Editor's note: This story contains graphic content.

With names like Stairway to Heaven and Tranquility, synthetic street drugs dubbed "bath salts" give the impression of a serene high.

But a video of a man who ingested the drug shows its effects are anything but.

High for five days, despite being pumped with enough sedative to knock out a large adult for three days, hallucinations coursed through his mind.

Surveillance footage from the Lake County Jail shows the man strip naked and climb the wall like a spider, then pretend to conduct an orchestra or land planes before using the toilet and turning around to eat his feces. He took some of the feces to a table area, rolled it and ate more before doing a headstand in the toilet and then inserting his fist in his rectum.

The truth is graphic. And the long-term effects of bath salts are unknown, Lake County Sheriff John Buncich said.

The man in the video, who was brought in from the Hobart area when police responded to a call of a disturbance, had no history of mental health issues. He was one of six people brought in during the past eight weeks who were high on bath salts and combative, Buncich said.

Users tend to be violent and erratic. They can't be housed with the general population until they come down. They have to be under constant watch, which is straining the jail's mental health section, he said.

"It leads to strong suicidal tendencies," Buncich said.

The sheriff has undercover officers making buys at convenience stores and gas stations around the region, from Lowell to Gary, Munster to Crown Point. The bath salts -- named for their appearance and not because they're derived from the soapy product added to bathtubs -- sell for $20 to $30 for a container the size of a small spice jar.

"At every place we purchased, it was under the counter," Buncich said.

As of July 1, several compounds of baths salts became illegal to sell, buy or possess in Indiana after being treated as synthetic cannabinoids, although they technically are not.

The bath salts purchased by undercover officers will be analyzed, and if they have a chemical makeup that was outlawed July 1, Buncich said criminal action will be taken against the sellers.

Earlier this week, Indiana State Excise Police officers seized 100 containers of bath salts from a Hobart gas station, but no arrests were made. Once police reports are completed, it will be up to Lake County prosecutors or Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission officials to proceed with the filing of any charges, according to field supervisor Sgt. Ally Taylor.

Advances in science make it easy for manufacturers to alter the chemicals just enough to be legal.

"Both these so-called bath salts and the pseudo-cannabinoid products such as Spice, K2, all of these have been addressed by the legislature, but the manufacturers are changing the chemical formula just enough so they can circumvent the law," Porter County Sheriff David Lain said. "All they have to do is change one molecule."

Bath salts are the newest drug in the age-old problem of substance abuse, he said.

"Science is actually working against us in controlling just another avenue for people to alter their consciousness and, in many cases, do harm to ourselves," Lain said.

Lain said the typical reaction to bath salts is a lack of self-control. Users become self-destructive, violent and unable to discern their surroundings. The effects are similar to PCP, an illegal sedative-type drug that, when taken in high amounts, can cause extreme agitation and hallucinations as well as seizures, coma and death.

In an Aug. 23 incident in Chesterton, an Indianapolis woman high on bath salts was involved in a hit-and-run accident, then hit a landscape boulder at Indiana Dunes State Park and rammed several police cars, police said. Police said she was incoherent, laughing uncontrollably and speaking nonsense.

About a month earlier in Merrillville, police believe a Merrillville man was under the influence of bath salts when he took a stun gun from a Merrillville patrolman and used it on another officer. He also was accused of biting one officer and striking another.

In a June 4 incident in Valparaiso, bath salts were the suspected cause of strange behavior in a Portage man who was arrested. He entered a bank and apartment units and tried to hide while proclaiming himself a prophet. He claimed to have killed an archangel and to be the prophet Elijah.

The National Drug Intelligence Center stated that calls to U.S. poison control centers for possible bath-salts use jumped from zero in 2009, to 302 in 2010 -- to 2,237 through May 2011, according to Lain.

"You can see the exponential rise in this," he said.

Charles Porucznik, executive director of the local High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas task force, said the agency is concerned the use of bath salts will increase, but because it's so new, there are no statistics.

"It truly is a new thing," he said. "We don't know how prevalent it's going to be."

holy crap, shit in a toilet, eat it, grab a piece for later, then do a headstand in the toilet and finishing off by fisting himself :shock:
