Designer Stimulants: Bath Salts
Marketed as safe or natural, Bath Salts carry a high risk for fatal overdose and psychotic behavior. Up to 40% of those requiring treatment for bath salt abuse, suffered psychotic symptoms including harm to themselves or others.
Kratom (Mitragynine) is a botanical product with psychotropic opioid-like effects that is currently not scheduled by the DEA, but is illegal in several states. Due to health risks, the FDA has concerns with use as a dietary supplement and in November 2017, the FDA identified serious side effects (including death) associated with the use of mitragynine in the United States. The DEA listed Kratom as one of its newest Drugs and Chemicals of Concern.
