These go by a whole slew of other nick names including "bath salts", "plant food", "shoe deodorizer", and many more. I'm surprised these don't have their own section within the forums considering their rising popularity in the past 10-15 years. In fact I would venture to say most of what is being sold as Cocaine or Ecstasy is really just a variant of one of these, since they are still relatively easy to come by from what I can tell. I got drawn into these about three years ago, and went on a bender for several months before finally stopping once and for all. The effects were very similar to cocaine/ecstasy in most, but not all cases. However, considering how inexpensive the active chemicals were in them to begin with, I was also under the impression that they really weren't "cut" as much as standard street cocaine is - there would be no need to. Many of these chemicals you could buy a raw gram of them from overseas labs in China for like $8/gram (granted you had to buy them in bulk). So I was assuming most of these "Bath Salt" shops were simply buying large quantities and thinning them out with stuff like dextrose and packaging them up in fancy packaging and selling them off for like $35 for a half gram. There were a few bad experiences though, that really threw me for a loop. One of them in particular was called "Mad Cat" or something like that, and not only did it not give me much of a high, it sent me into a near suicidal depression for several days straight. I was literally crying for like three days non stop. Some of the other ones just tasted really horrible and burned my nostrils without any buzz. One of the worst of them left a fishy smell in my nose for days that would not go away. I think the biggest thing that lured me back into stimulants - after having quit cocaine 10 years prior - was how cheap it all was, and how I could literally have it delivered to my house by the USPS.
