The Navy recently uploaded this video depicting the effects of Bath Salts, which are non-regulated designer drug comprised of a synthetic cathinone, or amphetamine. The ill effects include a range of physical & psychological conditions. Examples of these conditions are agitation, muscle spasms, kidney failure, lack of appetite, severe paranoid delusions and psychosis. Consequences, besides a possibly ruined life, have been known to include long-term hospitalization & even suicide. The video first depicts the patient’s perspective , then follows him from a third-person vantage point accompanied by commentary from a Navy officer. Please be aware that the depictions are graphic.
