BOSTON (CBS) – The drug commonly referred to as “bath salts” could soon be banned in Massachusetts.

The Massachusetts House recently passed a ban on the drug through an amendment attached to larger drug bill, according to the State House News Service.

The State Senate passed a similar ban attached to a different piece of legislation back in February.

State House News reports that lawmakers said they are now confident that they will be able to come together on a bath salt ban in the near future.

Doctors describe the drug as a LSD-like hallucinogenic combined with a cocaine-like stimulant.

The drug made national headlines recently when police suggested that a horrific cannibal attack in Miami may be linked to bath salts.

Thirty-eight states have banned the sale of bath salts.
