Bath salts became a common terminology after the so-called Causeway Cannibal attack in Miami.

And despite the toxicology report finding no evidence of bath salts, the preliminary reports linking the attack and the substance proved to instill fear into Americans.

Perhaps the myth of that attack being caused by bath salts is making a difference.

An article today in the Huffington Post indicates that bath salt related emergencies are down.

While the manufactured narcotic can still be found in stores, many shop keepers have adhered to the law and discontinued selling them.

Of course like any drug, a ban will only go so far to reduce the use of the substance.

Ridding America of drugs requires the users to quit.

Cartels wouldn’t be importing tons of cocaine, marijuana, heroin, and methamphetamine into this country, if there weren’t people lined up to buy it.

But it is good to see that people are getting the message of the dangers of bath salts. Interesting read and one we recommend to parents.
