  • Cocaine or bath salts? Only your drug dealer knows for sure.

Last week, Kansas cops and politicians were making headlines for calling for bans on a few chemicals sold as bath salts but really meant to mimic the effects of cocaine and meth.

Because there have been a couple of deaths tied to it, I was a big pussy and opted not to snort the bath salts. Luckily, one fun-loving reader took me up on my offer to send in a review, so you can all know whether it's worth the risk. Our voluntary tester, who identified himself as John, was not impressed.



Here's an excerpt from John's e-mail:

There are several compounds that are sold as Ivory Wave and other bath salts. The main culprits are mephedrone and MDPV.  But, there are 5 or 6 related compounds that are also used.

I've personally used mephedrone, MDPV, and another related compound which has escaped the sensationalism that the above two have endured.

You requested a description of the effects. They are as follows:

Mephedrone: Obtained in a pure crystal form from an online vendor. Somewhat euphoric, stimulating, but overall had a 'dirty' feeling I didn't like. Caused tightness in my chest area and a rapid heartbeat. Despite the reports in the media, this compound is strictly speedy and doesn't make one hallucinate unless one overdoes it or is strung out on it for days at a time. I did it a few times and thought it was total garbage! I never bought it again! But, I would consider doing it again.

MDPV: This is the WORST drug I have ever done. And I'd consider myself very experienced when it comes to uppers, downers, and hallucinogens! I obtained a powder form of this drug from an online vendor. It made my brain feel super stimulated, yet my body felt completely lethargic. It didn't make me happy, it just sort of put me in this depressed state. When the effects wore off, my head would start pounding with the worst headache I've ever felt. Which could only be temporarily cured by doing more MDPV. But, it only delayed the inevitable. I thought I was going to die that night from doing minute amounts of the drug. People getting hospitalized would do 20-30 times the amount that I did. I couldn't even imagine. I flushed the rest of that shit down the toilet. It's an evil, horrible drug that I would never, ever touch again!
This does not make me want to run out and get a bag.

You might have noticed that John mentioned another unnamed compound at the start of his review. In his e-mail, he goes on to call it "the best drug I've ever done," which is a bold statement. But because he doesn't actually name that drug, I'm not going to worry about it too much.

I know from past reviews that you guys can take drug reviews personally. Who knew so many people would get offended that I didn't trip out listening to MP3s? If you disagree with John and have had an awesome time on this stuff, send us your experiences and we'll post the rebuttal.

Play safe out there, kids.
