Zombie Apocalypse Averted? Bath Salts Ban Passes U.S. Senate

by at . Comments

In the wake of reports that bath salts may have played a role in Saturday's Miami zombie apocalypse attack, the U.S. Senate passed a bill to ban the substances.

Federal legislation criminalizing synthetic marijuana and some bath salts passed the Senate today and is now on its way to the House of Representatives.

The law was not passed as a result of the zombie apocalypse, but as part of the FDA Safety and Innovation Act, championed by Sen. Charles Schumer.

Eugene and Poppo

"Let this be a warning to those who make a profit manufacturing and selling killer chemical components to our teens and children," Schumer (D-NY) said.

"This bill closes loopholes that have allowed manufacturers to circumvent local and state bans," he said of the effort to ban "these deadly synthetic drugs."

Last Saturday, Rudy Eugene, 31, was shot dead by local police on the off-ramp of the MacArthur Causeway in Miami. He was eating another man's face.

As a police officer told Eugene to get off Ronald Poppo, he "just stood ... with pieces of flesh in his mouth and he growled," eyewitness Larry Vega said.

An ER doctor at the local Jackson Memorial Hospital told the Herald that Eugene's attack may have been brought on by psychosis caused by bath salts.

The extreme violence, super-human strength and an urge to shed clothes all correspond with reports of bath salt usage around the United States.

Whoever thinks bathsalt could never cause this is stuck with there head up there ass. Do some research in long term use the side effects and delusions can become permenent


those legs look pretty white...you sure these are the right suspects


also i have tried them and had no ill affects to that manner anyway . was just awake alot longer than i wanted to be


I have witnessed people in person on bath salts and while i would not reccomend high doses of it at any time i didnt see any symptoms of cannibalism with anyone that i seen .


I still don't see how in the world they are blaming this dude eating the guy's face on bath salt use...even if he was using them, did you ever think that maybe...just maybe...the dude is just effing NUTS???? it's ridiculous. I have taken bath salts and not once did I start growling like a spazz and have the urge to eat someones friggin face!! I mean srsly people... if it had that effect on people, who the hell would take it twice? LOL... yeah...those bath salts were pretty good I guess...but I didn't really like that whole wanting to eat the homeless dude feeling they gave me... c'mon... this is a horrific incident to say the least, but it is being used as propaganda to further demonize recreational drug use.


Notice everyone whos had these problems is not a child or a teen but over 20


George, apparently you have no clue what you are talking about. Bath salts are sold at large chain stores, tobacco stores, and even gas stations. Not all are owned by "third world terrorists". Do your homework before making an ass of yourself.


George your a racist and a closed minded moron..think before you speak you idiot..and then go tell your mom you were sorry she gave birth to such a stupid ignorant waste of a human. Then turn to a zombie yourself and go eat your own brain out..obviously you dont use it...once again you moron


Woah its coming took till 2012 but its here.. im ready


This is what happens when the gov does too much. They outlawed spice and salvia, which are relatively safe (if safe can ever be used with any kind of drug) and now in return, even more dangerous, more potent, and more deadly drugs have arisen in its wake. Good going guys!
