Mom In Maternity Ward Goes Nuts On Bath Salts

Bath salts mom

Of all places to do this crazy, dangerous drug, WHY would anyone choose a maternity ward AFTER they just gave birth???

That's apparently what an Altoona, Pennsylvania woman decided to do on June 17. Carla Murphy was determined "not of sound mind or able to make her own decisions" after hospital staff found her rolling around on the floor of the shower in the nude.

She was given an antipsychotic medication, but she continued to act uncontrollably until she bolted out of her room. She reportedly punched a nurse, kicked another and bit a police officer during her rampage. After she was finally subdued, the new mom was taken to prison due to an outstanding warrant and charged with a whole list of offenses like aggravated assault, disorderly conduct and a number of drug counts.

The authorities believe she smoked a type of bath salt called "blizzard". After searching her belongings they found a black pen with a substance hidden inside, as well as a package wrapped in medical tape that contained a white substance known as "Disco" — another term for bath salts.

Upon further investigation, her home was littered with all sorts of other drug paraphernalia. She was released from custody three days ago and is due in court on August 8.

We hope she's getting some drug counseling in the meantime!

    Man, the media is hellbent on blaming every whacko doing something wrong on bath salts..Probably to get the "public" so outraged it'll give the government the a-ok to break constitutional laws and ban the shit out of it. Fun stuff

    This isn't entertainment related at all. Some woman takes drugs in Pennsylvania…why the hell are you reporting on that?

    "after hospital staff found her rolling around on the floor of the shower in the nude."
    well I would hope she was nude in the shower. if she was fully clothed I would've been even more concerned.

    I really don't get why people are believing these stories when really they are just trying to get kids to actually be interested in the drugs. Notice, the coy way the wording skirts around what any credible news source wouldn't report as fact. "Apparently, she… on bath salts." Not a fact, nope, just like the face eating story. But no doubt, every story mentions the brand and street name of bath salt in question and usually there's even a rapper or movie promoted somewhere in there. It's a publicity story, not a news story. It's so obvious, and I really don't care if I sound like a quack because someone has to say it. Just like the whole "salvia" and "meth" campaigns they are not even being subtle about promoting drugs to your children on purpose, to do harm. That's what is happening.

    Re: ohthatj – Just wanted to clarify that I live in the town where this occurred unfortunately and it really is true. Granted, our small town news sources aren't very good at reporting things like the big media sources but what do you expect? It's not like we expected this to be national news! Here's a link to the article in our local newspaper, the Altoona Mirror:

    How come whenever a man goes nuts and strips naked on baths salts the news stories have videos and/or photos with full frontal nudity, but when it's a woman they never show anything?…. I know male nudity is much more in style in the media & society, and I kind of doubt anyone wants to see her naked, but it still seems sexist. Why are men subject to excessive public exposure and embarrsement, but women shielded and protected from it when they behave obnoxiously?

    It is NOT about this dumb deadbeat mom but about the poor baby. I hope she loses all rights to her baby. THey need to stop being so easy on these druggie parents who don't give a *hit less.
