Ever heard of Khat? A natural product for dopers, it contains cathinone, a whacky drug, of the chemical name: S-2-amino-phenyl-l-propanone. People who are accustomed to looking at these drug names see stimulant, upper, speed-like, written all over this one, and it elicits effects similar to ephedrine and amphetamines.
There are always more designer drugs being produced, to the extent that the law can’t keep pace regulating the doper chemists. The name Bath Salts is used to describe a class of drugs containing cathinone and analogs thereof, for example:
3,4 – Methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV)
4 – Methylmethcathinone (Mephedrone, 4-MMC)
3,4 – Methylenedioxymethcathinone (Methylone, MDMC)
4 – Fluoromethcathinone (Flephedrone, 4-FMC)
3 – Fluoromethcathinone (3-FMC)
4 – Methoxymethcathinone (Methedrone, bk-PMMA, PMMC)
Any combination of these analogs could send the user into a wild state of agitation, perhaps with hallucinations, and even lust for goats!
Such is the sad end for a cute little pygmy goat in South Charleston, West Virginia, who was attacked by one Mark Thompson, killed and possibly sexually assaulted, (given the presence of porn, and the partially unclothed state of the attacker).
Thompson, now of international notoriety, is bound for a life of ill treatment in prison after this escapade, which is said to be fueled by a three day jag on “bath salts”.
Don’t do bath salts.
