COLUMBUS, Ohio — Columbus police have shot two men in the past week who were reportedly high on drugs marketed as "bath salts" that doctors and police say can make users aggressive and violent.
"These drugs, even on first use, can dramatically change a person's perception of reality," said Paul H. Coleman, the president and CEO of Maryhaven, which treats drug and alcohol addicts.
Bath salts "can make a person feel everyone is out to get them. People need to stay away from them."
