well the reason it went really viral  is because
1. they have been trying to ban it for sometime(they are ban here in parts of FL). 
2. this keep happening  and it's very easy to get.
3. this shit mess you brain forever(once you take it you will have hallucinations,  extreme paranoia, and delusions for the rest of your life).

Yes it very real and just like people on PCP being hard to stop. I was just at the doc the other day getting a check up and i asked him about it ( he specialist in addiction medicine as his other job) and he told me he has been seeing more cases of it and that the people on it are VERY violence.

After seeing this video I am disgusted with the 3 or 4 people that witnessed the attack and kept going without doing something.  Even at my age I can't imagine not trying to help that guy.

well it was just so shocking and odd i can see why they kept going. Me unless i have a 12ga loaded with OO and slugs  or a 30/30 lever gun in the back seat i would call the cops and let them take care of something that messed up. Also what could you have done really??? these people are crazy strong and can take a lot of bullets to put down(remember why the Mozambique Drill came about?)   also it's always easy to after the fact say what someone could have done. Unless you were there in the heat of the moment you don't know what you would do when face with something like that.

I remember reading a story were the only way they stop someone like that was running a cop car into him and pinning them to the wall with it.

there have been other zombie like attacks.


A San Antonio woman is being held on $1 million bail in the killing of her 3½-week-old son yesterday. Police say he was dismembered, his face torn away and his brains ripped out. She had apparently eaten the brains, three toes and other body parts before stabbing herself.

WASHINGTON — A US college student has told police he killed his roommate, cut up the body and ate part of the victim's brain and his whole heart, according to US media reports.

I'd say thats a failure of procedure, or taking the "bitch way out"

Allow me to chime in on the "bath salts"...

We held a special workshop for fire officers and EMS responders to learn a bit more about it, with the rise in popularity. I'll go over the background, then i'll conclude with its effects on the body.

 -First of all, "bath salts" are just the name. This isn't the same stuff you put in your tub to make your junk smell like roses. They have to say its something else to legally sell it, the same way Salvia (which will make you briefly trip like a motherfucker) is sold as an "incense"

-with dozens of manufacturers making "bath salts," they all haze different chemical components, and different levels of purity. Meaning one wont fuck you up the way the other will. So if you shop between brands, you could have a total psychotic episode because you took something at a high dose, much stronger than what youre used to.

-In most states you can buy these right out of gas stations or little corner bodegas. The wording on the box states that it is "bath salts," despite the fact that it is ONLY sold to get high with and most packages even say that it is not for "consumption or injestion". Despite that, the pictures on the box usually show psychadelic images or funky colors, or here in CT, a skeleton tripping balls.

-Sales have temporarily been suspended here in CT, but its not enforced. its still in all the ghandi-marts.

-You can smoke it, inject it, or even swallow it.
   -Smoking and injecting will get you the most fucked up.


Its effects on the body, and treatment of a person having an episode...
 (cut and pasted from a manual theyre giving the guys in my department)

No antidote for bath salt toxicity is currently available. Treatment is supportive and directed at the signs and symptoms. The adverse reactions experienced, which are typical of sympathomimetic agents, include:
tachycardia (rapid heart rate)
hypertension (high blood pressure)
palpitations
extreme anxiety
tremors
sweating
headaches
dillusions
paranoia
psychosis
The effects can be attributed to alpha- and beta-adrenergic receptor stimulation and a sustained release of endogenous norepinephrine, dopamine, adrenaline and serotonin. Although beta-adrenergic blocking agents such as propranolol aren't contraindicated (as they are with cocaine intoxication), they should be used with caution. Because bath salts cause a strong adrenergic response, inhibiting one of the adrenergic receptors could lead to an overwhelming stimulation of the other receptors.

The same hepatic pathways that metabolize ecstasy are used to metabolize some forms of bath salts. Patients are also at risk for hepatic injury or insufficiency due to the overwhelming burden that impurities in bath salts place on the liver.N-Acetylcysteine may help to curb some of the hepatotoxic effects experienced by those showing signs of liver injury following the use of bath salts.

Although the rate of bath salt addiction is reported to be low, several users and former users have admitted to developing a strong, constant urge to use bath salts every day.Addiction potential is more commonly reported by those who prefer to "mini-dose," meaning they initially consume a large dose, then continue to take smaller doses every 1 to 2 hours to sustain their high, sometimes for several days.

To decrease the patient's anxiety, agitation, tremors, and psychosis, a sedative is required. It's usually a drug from the benzodiazepine class, such as diazepam or lorazepam, or a first- or second-generation antipsychotic such as haloperidol or ziprasidone, respectively. When the patient is hyperthermic, sedation helps decrease muscle hyperactivity and decrease the metabolic demands on the body.

According to the American College of Emergency Physicians, benzodiazepines are the preferred first-line agent because they have a quick onset and short duration, and can be given I.M.Because several doses may be required to achieve the desired clinical effect, the patient may also experience respiratory depression. Monitor patients' sedation level and respiratory status, and assess neurologic, psychiatric, and cardiopulmonary status.

I have yet to personally treat someone myself who was flipping out on bath salts, but I have dealt with people all strung out on pcp. it sounds to be pretty much the same

Interesting thought though, we HAVE seen a huge spike in PCP related call outs. There's a talk among us that perhaps alot of these arent PCP, but just bath salts presenting itself like a PCP high.
