In brief: Designer drug

Bath salts/mdpv/methylenedioxypyrovalerone is stiil legal designer drug similar to amphetamine but 4 times more potent than ritalin (methylphenidate).
It acts as a norepinephrine-dopamine receptor antagonist; use can lead to paranoia, hallucinations, panic attacks, aggressive behavior. Dea is working to make its sale & use illegal.
