The term “bath salts” has been around for about five years now, and the drug is often described as a synthetic form of a synthetic opioid.
Users often say the drug creates a state of intense euphoria and paranoia and can cause paranoia and hallucinations.
Users also claim the drug has been used as a “drug of choice” by people who have mental illness.
According to the National Institute of Drug Abuse, the word bath salts was coined by two Australian researchers, Amanda Palmer and David Nutt, in a report in the American Journal of Psychiatry.
The report states the two researchers said the drug was “the first to be reported to have a unique mechanism of action that mimics the actions of a cannabinoid agonist.”
It also states that the substance can cause hallucinations, panic attacks, paranoia and feelings of being in a trance state.
“The potential therapeutic benefit of bath salts to treat mental illness is substantial, especially in individuals with a history of mental illness who experience difficulty concentrating and social withdrawal,” the report said.
“A recent case study described that an individual with schizophrenia who had been taking bath salts reported a marked increase in his psychotic symptoms and reported having a ‘dance party’ in his apartment.”
Bath salts have also been linked to increased suicidal thoughts and behavior in some individuals.
“The drug has become the focus of media attention and public debate.
The Federal Government has recently proposed legislation that would ban the sale and manufacture of bath salt.
A number of Australian companies have also responded by creating their own version of the drug.
The Australian Federal Police says there are currently three Australian companies that manufacture the substance.
In an emailed statement to The Australian, a spokesperson for the Federal Government said the legislation was being looked at.”
As a government, we support the scientific research into bath salts, but we do not want to be a place where the government tries to regulate and regulate for its own benefit,” the spokesperson said.
In a statement to the ABC, a spokesman for the Australian Drug Foundation said the group was not in a position to comment.
The drug is currently available online.
