10. You do understand that these are not actually bath salts

There are chemicals, labelled as "bath salts" which were stumbled upon in an attempt to get around restrictions on MDMA, but these chemicals are nothing like MDMA and appear to cause psychotic episodes.

In the UK to avoid being controlled by the Medicines Act, designer drugs such as mephedrone have been described as "bath salts" or "plant food", despite the compounds having no history of being used for these purposes. Due to these inaccurate descriptions of products, it is possible that selling the compounds under these descriptions could be illegal under the Trade Descriptions Act.<26><27><28>

In the USA, similar descriptions have been used to describe mephedrone as well as methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV).
