A gruesome crime in Miami introduced many people to a designer drug called "bath salts," not to be confused with actual bath salts used for soaking in the tub.
On Memorial Day weekend, a man attacked a homeless man, stripped him naked, and then began to eat the homeless man's face. Police said they suspect the assailant had taken bath salts.
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency has said that the side effects of bath salts include impaired perception of reality, agitation, and delusional behavior.
