The dangerous designer drug 'bath salts' contains chemicals that are synthetic derivatives of cathinone, a central nervous system stimulant, and are known to effect users in a variety of ways, from agitation, insomnia, irritability and dizziness to depression, paranoia, delusions and suicidal thoughts. Use of the drug is banned in all states. Bath salts are ingested by sniffing or snorting. The Air Force's stance on bath salts and similar substances is clear: zero tolerance. Air Force Instruction 44-120 says the "knowing use of any intoxicating substance, other than the lawful use of alcohol or tobacco products, that is inhaled, injected, consumed or introduced into the body in any manner to alter mood or function is prohibited."
