Navy releases PSA focusing on dangers of bath salts

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

The U.S. Navy has released a new informational video warning of the dangers of the synthetic amphetamine known as "bath salts."

The video follows a man who has used "bath salts" and documents his bizarre, erratic behavior.

According to Navy Medicine psychiatry resident Lt. George Loeffler at the Naval Medical Center San Diego,, the adverse health effects from bath salt use can range from lack of appetite to kidney failure, muscle spasms, severe paranoid delusions, and psychosis.

"I would say not just as the naval officer, but as your doctor, bath salts will not only jack up your family and your career, it will jack up your mind and body too," said Loeffler in the PSA.
