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.

i feel the ones truly responsible for this is the arabs in the little dirty stores that sell this crap,they should all be rounded up and sent back to their third world country and sell this to their own people.they are poisoning our people with this stuff,sitting back laughing and sending the money back home...maybe if they start prosicuting these terrorist,we would be better off....

We may speculate all we want but we won't know a possible motive until the toxicology report comes out. Even that may be fabricated.

Killed himself, not before damn near killing someone else. Stupid people, do stupid things, sometimes those things cost them their lives. If thats population control, in my eyes its the only thing the govt is doing right.

@ jessica baker: population control....? You cant have it both ways. You cant call foul for racial profiling based on "the war on drugs", then blame anyone/everyone but the moron that decided to take bath salts in the first place. The idiot

This was a clear.black on white crime, but in the name of "bath salts" we will make excuses for this as WE always do. Humm.......did anyone stop to think maybe george zimmerman was all amped up on "bath salts"...? Whats good for one, should be good for all. Ill look past a black man running around rabid on a cheap high, if you can look past a bi-racial trigger happy, wanna-be cop.

Smoke shops are selling synthetic drugs labeled as bath salts and glass cleaner. They are not typical salts that you would pour into a bath. It's real. It's causing schizophrenia and now zombie like behaviors. The f d a bans the dangerous ingredients in the substances & chemists come up with new formulations that are not regulated. Please google & make the public aware of the danger.
