Guam - Evidently bath salt isn't not just used for taking a baths anymore, at least if the bath salt contains chemicals like MDPV or mephedrone. These synthetic stimulants are neither controlled by the Drug Enforcement Administration nor approved for human consumption by the Food and Drug Administration.

Vice Speaker B.J. Cruz has introduced Bill 78, which would prohibit these products containing either element from being sold on Guam. These products are sold under various street names like Ivory Wave and Vanilla Sky.

They're snorted, eaten or smoked as a substitute for cocaine or Ecstasy.
