Synthetic Drugs

Synthetic cathinones, like MDPV, Mephedrone, and Methylone, are psychoactive stimulants used in designer drugs such as "bath salts".


Designer Drugs

"Bath salts" are one of many designer drugs containing synthetic cathinones.

The most common synthetic cathinones sold on the recreational drug market are 3, 4-Methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV), Mephedrone, and Methylone. They are often used in "bath salts" and other designer drugs sold "not for human consumption". Most cathinone derivatives have been banned in recent years due to increasing health concerns associated with the drug's use, including one face-eating "zombie" from Florida. Synthetic cathinones are stimulants, with similar effects to MDMA, cocaine, and other amphetamines.
