Bath Salts Awareness - Spreading the Word....



  Some of you may remember a previous post of mine about the use of a drug disguised as Bath Salts. If you didn't read it, click HERE.

  Some very special friends of ours lost their son to this drug. Dickie committed suicide because of having such terriffic hallucinations.

  Dr. Rick Sanders, and Dr. Julie Lawrence Sanders have taken on a challenge to educate the public through their sorrow in order to hopefully prevent others from having to endure such a loss. 

  I'm linking up to 2 different interviews. One was made in New Orleans, and one was on the Today Show this past Monday. Yes, the Today Show! The Sanders are serious and determined to spread the word, and thank goodness people are listening.

  Click HERE for the TODAY video. (it may take a minute to load) 
  Click HERE for New Orleans video that was on FOX news.

  I do hope you will pass this information on. You never know when you might be saving someone's life. This is a new fad, and there isn't much awareness of its effects at this time. 

 We are heartbroken for our friends, and I ask that you say a prayer for them in their efforts to spread information about this drug.


Thanks,
Shirley

That is just unreal. I thought years ago what a waste of intelligence that somebody would realize you could make meth from OTC sinus medication...now using innocent bath salts as a drug. Our world is so sin-filled...so very sad for these parents...and for the young man!! Thanks so much for sharing this, Ms. Shirley...I hadn't heard about it!

this has been on the news and its so scary. They are cracking down here on shops that sell it. And there is an herb some shops are selling too that is like this. Glad to know you are all trying to get the word out too.

Thanks for sharing this Shirley! This is incredibly sad. I had seen the today show piece earlier in the week. I try to stay up with the latest things kids are using because I work with children every day, and you never know when the opportunity to help them will arise. It's getting harder to keep up, with so many new ways of getting high emerge. Thanks for the information!
