A man in Miami was shot and killed when police found him on the side of the highway (naked) eating the face off an elderly man (also naked). The police were forced to shoot and kill the attacker because when ordered to cease and desist he growled like a zombie.

The man was later found to have been under the influence of the new popular drug bath salts.

Aren't drugs wonderful?

Yes, and?

This is still no reason to prohibit bath salts. Or really any drug for that matter.

Are you in favor of banning alcohol, because the amount of violent crimes committed as a result of alcohol is extraordinary high.

It caused him to eat a man's face. The man is in critical condition. You really want to threaten the public like that?

I am in favor of public prohibition AKA not being able to leave your property while under the influence. Private drinking is fine.

To relax their restless flight

First and foremost, there will probably never be common ground on this issue between us, judging from your statement about alcohol.

Secondly, the police haven't even officially released the bloodwork on this guy. Yes, he was high on bath salts, but to assume it's the sole cause is really...interesting. There could be preexisting psychological issues.

Thirdly, even if it was the sole cause, it's not the state's job to prevent the opportunity for someone to hurt someone else. That is called a nanny state. Furthermore, murder, battery, assault, all are crimes already. It's akin to banning video games because they supposedly make people more violent--which is what nutters like Hilary Clinton wish to do.

Fourthly, do you honestly think the cost of prohibiting something is genuinely worth it? Prohibiting a substance only gives money to brutal cartels and drug lords, and stirs up more violence than that which might, MIGHT be caused while on the drug.

Lastly, I'm flattered. I've always wanted to be in a person's wall of fail.

Car batteries can be used to make drugs, so can any number of common household items.. There are chemicals in tons of stuff people use daily, and the overwhelming majority of people don't misuse them.

This face eating thing is pretty messed up..

But isn't saying we should now ban bath salts a bit reactionary and unnecessary?

As far as I know this has happened to 1 out of nearly 7 billion people on the planet.. does anyone know of another case?

Before we ban some generally benign things, lets be sure to look at all the facts.

I am just 100% anti-drug. I don't like the idea that any substance that can alter a person's mind can be allowed to be circulated. It's degrading and dangerous. That is my personal belief.

I am 100% against the Nanny state you know that. But my experience with drug users and alcohol has made me so turned off to the idea and so turned off to the substances that I will fight against it til the day I die.

Not this specific case, though bath salts are often abused. Though i agree, it's not a legitimate reason to ban bath salts.

In the case that I am misrepresented, I am personally very against negative drugs as well. I will, if all went according to plan, never drink, smoke, nor do any street, or negative, drug. I think drugs and doing drugs are stupid. Crack is whack.

At the same time though, I believe that the state 1) has no business existing, but 2) has no business with prohibiting substances. I also have friends that recreationally do drugs, and I don't judge them.

But, again, I have no interest in even trying illicit drugs.

Even apples are abused for facilitating drug use. Cat nip, oregano, nutmeg.. Household cleaning supplies.. Certainly it's a problem, but like you said, these fairly uncommon incidents are not enough just to start banning things that most use responsibly.

I was just about to say this. I was confused. People aren't literally snorting bath salts. It's a drug name.

Bath salts is the name of the drug. It's not household bath salts.

The drug is also called "Purple Rain," "Ivory Wave," "Vanilla Sky," or "Bliss"

"The powdery substance comes in a small packet, and can be inhaled, swallowed or injected, according to a report from the National Institutes of Health.

The drug is manufactured by street chemists and sold in convenience stores or online, often legally. Sellers were able to sell the drug legally since its emergence in 2009 by marketing the substance as either bath salts or "plant food" or "insect repellant," and stipulating "not for human consumption" on the label."

But isn't saying we should now ban bath salts a bit reactionary and unnecessary?

As far as I know this has happened to 1 out of nearly 7 billion people on the planet.. does anyone know of another case?

Before we ban some generally benign things, lets be sure to look at all the facts.

But I had a strong emotional reaction to this face-eating story! Clearly bath salts should be banned.

Bath salts is the name of the drug. It's not household bath salts.

The drug is also called "Purple Rain," "Ivory Wave," "Vanilla Sky," or "Bliss"

Oh..

Well it's already classified as a schedule 1.. so it's already banned...

No your Honor, I never meant for this product to be consumed by humans. That's why I clearly stated on the label "Will cause you to eat peoples' faces".

Correlation does NOT IMPLY CAUSATION.

"Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

Car batteries can be used to make drugs, so can any number of common household items.. There are chemicals in tons of stuff people use daily, and the overwhelming majority of people don't misuse them.

This face eating thing is pretty messed up..

Not this specific case, though bath salts are often abused. Though i agree, it's not a legitimate reason to ban bath salts.

Even apples are abused for facilitating drug use. Cat nip, oregano, nutmeg.. Household cleaning supplies.. Certainly it's a problem, but like you said, these fairly uncommon incidents are not enough just to start banning things that most use responsibly.

cough syrup, mouthwash, wild lettuce, coleus plant, glue, dusters, paint, sharpies, gasoline, etc. etc..........

Yeah the list could go on forever.. People who want to get high will find a way...
