Bath salts destroying lives

I am writing to inform the community that K-2 bath salts are being sold openly at an area store.

These drugs are among the most dangerous to ever hit the streets. Lives are being destroyed by this every day. Young people have been known to commit suicide after using this drug only once. A recent story tells of a young girl who went into seizures within minutes of using K-2. She had severe inflammation of the blood vessels in her brain. Doctors had to drill a hole in her skull to relieve the pressure. She was induced into a coma and lost her ability to speak or use her arms.

I have made the sheriff’s department aware of this and provided a sample from the store for testing. I was told it could take two or three months to get results.

I wonder how many young lives will be destroyed before something is done.
