In brief: Death probably
Bath salts are becoming a major health issue here in the us.
They contain unidentified substances which, when smoked, seem to cause psychotic behavior. Because it is unknown what they contain, there is no treatment. Please, if you desire that you and your loved ones have a normal life, do not try them, even once.

Well he are lucky. The term bath salts is a very generic term, like saying cereal. There are no standard ingredients, so one is very different from another. I would encourage him to stop before he has a bad, irreversible outcome. Thanks for writing.

One problem is that there are designer-versions of this appearing in the 'salts', so you don't really know what is in it. Since there is no good way to test for these drugs, you also don't know how much is in a batch. Also, you don't know was other things are mixed in and what their effects may be. Generally, it can act like a stimulant, but in a unpredictable manner.
