Narcotics and Vice Quarterly features important information about readily available drugs

The latest issue of the Narcotics and Vice Quarterly newsletter is now available, and it's got some great information about "bath salts," which are not at all for use in the tub. They're a dangerous mixture of drugs that are extremely similar in their chemical make-up to drugs like cocaine, ecstasy and methcathinone. Local police have seen several overdoses on bath salts, as well as a possible suicide triggered by the extreme paranoia it causes.

The newsletter also includes a story about how restricting a popular cold medicine could do a lot to reduce methamphetamine production. In addition, check out a profile of our Gang Squad and the latest statistics on drugs and guns recovered by the Narcotics and Vice Division.
