The latest tale of bath salts woe is certainly not as gruesome as the Miami face eating incident — which authorities eventually discovered had nothing to do with the drug — but it's really effing DISGUSTING!
A 21-year-old Georgia male was arrested on July 3 after snorting "a lot" of bath salts and once police were finally able to subdue him, they realized he had been eating poop!
Granted, the more horrifying part of the story is the fact that Matthew Hammond's mom had to call the cops because he was "walking around out of his mind, armed with a knife.”
Forget a complete stranger. Can U imagine seeing your friend or relative behaving this way?
The arresting officer was spared the vomit-worthy visuals and

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

As more and more horrible stories about the dangerous and violent side effects of bath salts keep popping up, we're learning more about just how potent and manipulative this drug can be.
While toxicology reports only detected marijuana in Rudy Eugene's lifeless body, we know it's HIGHly unlikely for weed to induce cannibalism cravings.
Many believe today's tests just aren't sophisticated enough to detect certain synthetic drugs like bath salts.
As Dr. Bruce Goldberger puts it:

Karl Laventure had quite the 21st birthday last month!
After getting high on bath salts, Karl found the nearest golf course and terrorized driving range patrons by stealing their clubs, running around like a crazed lunatic, and swinging at everyone's balls.
Police quickly arrived on the scene … but it isn't easy taking down a dude on a bad trip who feels no pain!!
He threatened to eat the cops' faces, he rambled about Tupac and Notorious B.I.G., and he even offered a favorable opinion on the recent Avengers movie.
Police eventually had to tase the him… 14 times. That finally subdued him enough to have paramedics inject him with a tranquilizer to temporarily counteract the bath salts effects in order to transport him to a hospital.
Why in the world would anyone smoke a drug to give them terrible hallucinations and carvings for human flesh??

This is three parts strange, and seven parts very very sad!
When an Arizona judge passed down a guilty verdict for Michael Marin yesterday, the newly minted arsonist killed himself right there in the courtroom!!
As soon as the verdict was read, Mike took something out of his bag, ingested it, and quickly collapsed.
Did he pop a poison pill? Were bath salts involved?
Ch-Ch-Check out the super sad video (above) and try and solve the mystery for yourself!
Mike was caught climbing out of his flaming house in scuba gear and it's believed he tried to burn his mansion to the ground to collect insurance money!!
What a terrible ending, to an oddly disturbing tale.

Hmm, how VERY peculiar!
The now infamous incident featuring a seemingly super-strength, drugged-out Rudy Eugene eating another man's face and flesh in Florida was apparently NOT caused by Bath Salts!
According to toxicology reports, the only questionable substance found in Mr. Eugene's body was marijuana, which is pretty unlikely to make someone suddenly crave human meat…
The reports state:

We aren't just talking about the side effect of, say, eating somebody's face off or brandishing a shovel.
We're talking about the basic mental effect on the the person who has been taking bath salts.
