Police Chief Speaks Out On Bath Salts

A scary new drug that's been known to cause paranoia, hallucinations, psychotic episodes and death has been banned by the feds, and Police Chief Bill Reid says that's a good thing. Bath salts, or MDPV, were previously not subject to government legislation. 

Reid says while the drug hasn't been a big problem in Saint John so far, its popularity among youth in Maine is a worry.

Reid says the force has been keeping a close eye on the trend and he's hoping now that they're illegal the drug will have even less of a presence in the community.
