Watch Out For Ivory Wave Bath Salts; People Snorting It To Get High, Dangerous Side Effects Triggering Psychosis And Death

As if we didn't have enough problems with spice, now there's a new recreational drug to contend with: Ivory Wave bath salts. It's not known if they've made their way into Alaska yet, but usage has increased in the Lower 48, and it became so prevalent in the United Kingdom that the Brits banned it.

Ivory Wave is sold online and in smoke shops; a small pack sells for about $30. Even though there's a disclaimer on the back of the package which reads "Not for human consumption", that's merely a dodge so it can be sold legally. People are snorting it to obtain an amphetamine-like or cocaine-like high. But, as they're finding out in Utah, there are side effects. Joseph Bosilovick of West Jordan says his friend started using Ivory Wave about three months ago in combination with his bipolar medications. Now, he's at the University of Utah psychiatric hospital being monitored for hallucinations, agitation and paranoia. "His hands constantly shaking, he's constantly moving, constantly looking over his shoulder, like somebody's out to get him," says Bosilovick.

Ivory Wave contains two drugs, Lidocaine and Pyrovalerone; one is used by dentists in anesthesia, while the other is a hallucinogen. A Wall Street Journal story on the new legal drugs coming out of Europe -- sold as bath salts and plant food and with similar chemical structures to Ivory Wave -- noted that many of the more successful ones were purposefully designed to mimic crack cocaine. One person recently died from using Ivory Wave in Missouri. A Mississippi sheriff wants it banned because his deputies have encountered Ivory users who thought they were demons.

But the worst problems have been in the United Kingdom, prompting the Home Office to ban it. More specifically, the import ban applies to Ivory Wave's active ingredient, known as 2-DPMP, which was developed initially as a treatment for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in children. Back on August 28th, 2010, the Daily Mail published a lengthy article on several high-profile victims of the drug.

The most noteworthy victim was 35-year-old Sarah Forsyth, who just got married in 2009. But she did not start taking Ivory Wave to get high; instead, she took it as an appetite suppressant because she thought she looked fat in her wedding dress. It worked -- she dropped from a size 16 to a size six. But what a price she paid. She became a paranoid, aggressive agoraphobic, insomniac. Sarah then began hearing voices in her head, and two days before she fell ill, she was suffering such vivid paranoid hallucinations that she called the police to her flat claiming to have had heard some men trying to break in. On Friday August 6th, 2010, while she was spending the night at her parents' house, Sarah lost consciousness. Her mother and the first response ambulance team both assumed at first that it was to do with her diabetes, but Sarah failed to wake even when her blood sugar levels were returned to normal. After two days in a coma, they did a CAT scan, which found severe swelling on her brain. It was clear this had nothing to do with her pre-existing medical condition. All they could do was wait and see whether she would wake of her own accord. They stopped sedating her, but day after day she showed no sign of consciousness. When Sarah came off life support, the family agreed she should not be resuscitated if her heart stopped beating, which it did two days later.

Meanwhile, A&E departments from Scotland to Dorset have reported a sudden surge of admissions suffering from the effects of Ivory Wave. There were 20 recent A&E admissions in Lothian, Scotland, and 12 in Cumbria, where several patients were suffering such acute and long-lasting paranoid psychosis after taking it that they had to be completely sedated before they could be treated. The drug is also known to raise the heart rate and blood pressure to dangerous levels and cause kidney failure, seizures, muscle damage and loss of bowel control. Every A&E department in England has now been sent an alert about it and the chief medical officers in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland have issued similar warnings.

This crap needs to be kept out of Alaska.

  10. Drugs are a people problem. More specifically, people need to be taught how to use them and not abuse them.

  13. Why can't we all just get along? While we make racial slurs and take cheap shots at one another, the vast array of problems associated with addiction continue to destroy people's lives and those who love them. There are no easy answers. Our nation's war on drugs appears to create more problems than it solves. In the meantime, the costs associated with addiction continue to climb. As a recovering addict and an addictions counselor, I see the damage first hand and believe that it may be the most urgent issue facing our country, at this time, and we would all do well to put aside our differences and work work together to create solutions.

  15. I think Peoples are trying this because it’s legal and have a mindset how bad could it be?
    But they just don't know what they are getting themselves into.
    And all of you who are saying harsh words like Die, stupid, hope you commit suicide, to ones who uses this stuff by mistake, are no different than a person who’s doing this Crap.
    Maybe you may never do this stuff, but you never know if your children or your family member, loved ones, by mistake does it the future... And let’s see if you still will be saying that they deserve to die and needs to commit suicide.
    Because, Karma is a Scary Thing.

    1. amen bro. iv been off bath salts now for 24 days and i think i have gotten most of my mind back after having lost it. Im a genuine recovering addict that has done everything under the sun as well. In the past, it took crystal meth 3 years to do to me what crystal clean "pipe cleaner" did to me in 3 wks!! Its bad shit, and all those misinformed punk asses talking about how only idiots do it are the biggest fools of all. Every addict i have ever know was highly intelligent, resourceful and resilient. Those lucky few who can pick up and put down a drug easily are more foolish for even buying the ticket to take the ride. Addicts like myself have to work extra hard to keep our lives together and our minds intact. To all those fore-mentioned punk asses, hate the addiction, not the addict.
