Bath Salts

National Institute of Drug Abuse

Bath salts are illegal drugs made with chemicals like the one found in the khat plant (a shrub grown in many parts of the world) that gets people high. They are a white or brown crystal powder. Bath salts are sold in small packages with a warning that says you're not supposed to eat the contents ("not for human consumption"). They're also labeled with the name "bath salts" to make the drugs seem harmless.
