US Senator wants ban on drug-like bath salts

ALBANY, N.Y. -- U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer of New York says he wants the federal government to ban new designer drugs known as bath salts that pack as much punch as cocaine or methamphetamines.

The small, inexpensive packets of powder are meant to be snorted for a hallucination-inducing high, but they are often marketed with a wink on the Internet or in convenience stores as bathing salts.

The Democratic senator is announcing a bill Sunday that would add those chemicals to the list of federally controlled substances. He is also pushing New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to ban the substance in the state.

A handful of states have already banned the active ingredients in the powders.

Schumer says the bath salts "contain ingredients that are nothing more than legally sanctioned narcotics."

COMMENT: this is interesting as the DEA has essentially said they don't have the data yet to move forward on emergency scheduling these substances. Politicians on the other hand, can do as they damn well please.
