VIDEO The U.S. Navy’s bizarre PSA about bath salts

Navy PSA on bath salts

The U.S. Navy has been dealing with the problematic usage of bath salts among its sailors and as a solution they have put together a PSA about the drug called, “BATH SALTS: It’s not a fad…It’s a NIGHTMARE.”

In the clip a young man gets some bath salts in the mail, does a line of the drugs, vomits, sees his girlfriend as a deranged demon, punches her in the face, returns home and sees his roommate as a demon, passes out, ends up in the hospital, convulses and then gets tranquilized by a group of people in fatigues all while a catchy dance club mix plays.

After viewers follow this young man’s journey into hell, psychiatry resident LT George Loeffler discusses the synthetic drug in detail. He explains that bath salts are commonly ingested via snorting through the nostrils, orally, rectally and via injection into the veins.

Loeffler says:

“When people are using bath salts, they’re not their normal selves. They’re angrier. They’re erratic. They’re violent and they’re unpredictable. People will start seeing things that aren’t there, believing things that aren’t true.”

He goes on to explain that paranoid hallucinations can last weeks after the ingestion of bath salts. “Ultimately, these people are jacking up their brains with what they’re doing.” Loeffler goes on to emphasize the unpredictability of what one is abusing from package to package.
