Drug Testing

There are various ways to test for drugs in your system, including urine, blood, and hair analysis.


Synthetic Drugs

The active compounds in "bath salts" are synthetic cathinones, such as MDPV, Mephedrone, and Methylone.


Designer Drugs

"Bath salts" are one of the most controversial designer drugs available today.

Yes!!! Though "bath salts" are very vague. Mephedrone, one of the most common drugs in "bath salts", is detecteable by most drug tests. Taking "bath salts" may also show positive for methamphetamine. It is common for "bath salts" to have a combination of substances, many of which are detectable by urine and blood drug tests.
