ATTLEBORO (CBS) – The designer drug known as “bath salts” may soon be banned in Massachusetts.

Attleboro Representative George Ross filed a bill Wednesday that would ban the product, which can be sold online and in convenience stores.

Bath salts can be abused, giving the user a high similar to cocaine or meth.

25 other states have already banned them, and 11 more are working on it.

    What! I’m obviously using the wrong “bath salts”…. But I’m sure 99% of the people using these “bath salts” are adult women – and after a hard days work, listening to their co-workers, significant other and kids nag her to death and running around like a fool trying to make everyone happy… if she can get a quick buzz for the 45 seconds she’s allowed some peace and quiet in the tub… Go for it! And someone tell me the name of the bath salts… Obviously Calgon needs to give up their slogan of … take me away… because I’ve never gotten a buzz from a bath w/ it! And how do our lawmakers have time to even think about this and pass a bill on it when there are much more important things to think about… maybe they need to relax and take a bath!

    It seems that “bath salts” here is being used differently than the way I think of them….maybe. Grew up with my parents insisting Epsom Salts in a bath helped to relax tense muscles….. can’t say I necessarily agreed with them. Is it Epsom Salts that this story is talking about, or some totally different product? Think the story needs a bit of clarification.
