Emergency Department Visits After Use of a Drug Sold as "Bath Salts" — Michigan, November 13, 2010 –
March 31, 2011
On February 1, 2011, Michigan health authorities began investigating recent reports of illness caused by the use of recreational designer drugs sold as "bath salts". Unlike traditional cosmetic bath salts, which are packaged and sold for adding to bath water, the drugs sold as "bath salts" have no legitimate use for bathing and are intended for substance abuse. These products can contain stimulant compounds such as 3,4-methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV) or 4-methylmethcathinone (mephedrone). This report describes the Michigan investigation, which identified 35 persons who had ingested, inhaled, or injected "bath salts" and visited a Michigan emergency department during November 13, 2010–March 31, 2011. Seventeen patients were hospitalized, and one was dead on arrival.
