Bath salts back poppin’?
Police Report Trend Of Increased Sales Of Bath Salts In Spain And Texas
Tourists visiting Ibiza are being sold a drug linked to the horrendous cannibal attack on a homeless man in Florida, it’s claimed.
Cops on the Spanish party island have launched a severe crackdown on powerful Methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV) – after an outbreak of extreme violence among takers.
The hallucinogenic narcotic – dubbed “Cannibal” – was blamed for the sickening assault carried out by Rudy Eugene, 31, on vagrant Ronald Poppo, 65, in Miami in June 2012.
Police were forced to shoot Eugene dead after he devoured three-quarters of his victim’s face while high on the bath salts substance.
Spanish authorities are worried that the drug has made it across the Atlantic – and is being taken in copious amounts in the popular resort of San Antonio.
Hospital staff treated several British tourists they thought were acting “more like zombies” than patients over a 4 day period, according to Diario de Ibiza.
“One patient was extremely aggressive so he was handcuffed,” Matilde Fernández, nurse at a San Antonio Health Centre, told the newspaper.
“Several police officers tried to hold him down on the stretcher, he ended up on the floor and then he bit the hand of one of the officers,” she said.
