Public protest “bath salts” head shops as “Zombie Apocalypse” continues
Further face eating outbreaks feared
After a spate of so-called face-eating zombie attacks, bath salts have recently been outlawed, but that doesn’t stop some stores from selling different drugs that produce the same effects.
In early May the Stash House in Oneida, New York was one of three shops raided by police where officers seized $56,000 worth of synthetic drugs.
Bath salts have been listed in stores as a cleaning product, but they have been as used as drugs, being snorted, injected, or even eaten to get high.
According to News Channel 9 the Stash House doesn't sell them but they do sell 'glass cleaner.' It’s said to produce similar side effects.
Protestors who assembled outside the Stash House on Friday told the press they were outraged that stores continue to sell such products.
About a dozen residents called on the head shops to stop selling the synthetic drugs, which are legal to sell, but still have the harmful side affects of bath salts.
Residents claimed that those abusing bath salts or glass cleaner are terrorizing their neighborhoods.
'I’ve never took up anything in my life, but this is very, very important to me. It makes them into something they’re not and it turns them into animals,' protester Beverly Johnson told News Channel 9.
Earlier this week police claim that bath salts made local woman Pamela McCarthy run around her neighborhood naked growling at people. She also reportedly punched her three-year-old son and tried to strangle her dog. McCarthy later died from the drugs.
Synthetic drug manufacturers are reportedly staying one step ahead of the law, finding new formulas and marketing them in new ways to avoid prosecution.
