Is it everywhere? Fake Coke easy purchase

Use of
'fake cocaine’ is
gaining p
opularity; U.S. issues alert

Sold as ‘bath salts,' using the powders are viewed as perilous. In their search for new and legal ways to get high, people are increasingly ingesting an addictive substance sold in stores as bath salts, say police and health officials in Missouri, Florida, Illinois and Louisiana.        
       Also called Molly's Plant food 

The ‘bath salts’ are sold in 50-milligram Packets for $25 to $50 each. 
Packages of some of the bath salts or crystals are labeled Cloud 9, White Dove, Blue Silk, Pure Ivory, Snow Leopard, Lunar Wave, as well as White Night, Bliss, and Vanilla Sky.
Recently the side effects included two suicides in Louisiana, dozens of emergency room visits to Florida hospitals and a third suicide in St Joseph, MO.  

As of yet, the drug(s) are not specifically banned although several states are moving to do so.  The DEA is reportedly also looking at the situation seriously as many of the stores that are selling the synthetic tweakers are the very same that were selling K2/Spice (synthetic THC).  The DEA used its emergency authority to ban the five K2 chemicals on March 1, 2011.
