    Fake 'Bath Salts' Drug to be Banned in Pa.

    The state house passed a bill Wednesday that will eventually ban the drug known as “bath salts.”

    "Bath salts" are usually snorted and mimic the effects of cocaine and methamphetamines.

    The compound can be purchased legally in most of the country.

    This bill, which is on its way to Gov. Tom Corbett, will reform Pennsylvania’s controlled substance, drug, device and cosmetic act to include the bath salt drug.
