Bath Salts Users Feel “Evil” and Commit Attacks
Jun 08, 2012
Several recent dark Bath Salts-related events are highlighting the dangers of the synthetic drug. Freddy Sharp, who was recently restrained while making faces and twitching after using the drug says he felt like he’d been possessed by Jason Voorhees, the character from the Friday the 13th movies. "It felt so evil. It felt like the darkest, evilest thing imaginable," he explains, “I felt like I was about to bust loose and actually hurt somebody." Sharp’s incident is accompanied by the recent event in Miami in which an alleged Bath Salts user attacked a homeless man and ate off his face and an event in Panama City, in which a woman tried to behead her 71-year-old mother.
"This is a terrible drug because it takes a combination of methamphetamine, and the paranoia and the aggressiveness, and LSD, the hallucinations, and PCP, the extreme paranoia that you get, combines it into one, and has unpredictable effects on human behavior," Paul Adams, an emergency room doctor in Miami, told CNN. Asked what he would say to other Bath Salts users, Sharp said, "The only thing I can say to them is that if you value your life, you'll stop it and you won't do it anymore, because it will destroy your life. It will destroy your family. It will destroy everything."
