Bangor Police Warning City Police of "Bath Salts"

The Bangor Police Department sounding the warning bell on a synthetic stimulant that has been plaguing Maine for the past few years.

The drug is called bath salts and can be obtained legally over the internet.  Bath salts can cause hallucinations, paranoia, and even suicide.

Lt. Tom Reagan tells CHSJ News it's only a matter of time before bath salts become a problem in Saint John and it's important to share knowledge about the drug so that we don't have to deal with the problem from the ground up.
He says both police and EMS need policies when dealing with someone on the drug as it is a medical emergency.

Reagan will be speaking tonight at Ridgewood at 7pm and the event is open to the public.
