Anonymous, if you are through with your ridiculous tirade or coming down off your high maybe you will read the question (if you are able): “What is the name of the new str(o)ke drug mentioned on the noon news.” The answer is: “Xarelto”.
It’s bullshit. The whole story is bullshit. Anyone that has ever taken a basic journalism class – or anyone with an ounce of common sense – can see the patchwork nature of this copy pasta job that’s being passed off as a “news report”. It’s crap. They never tell you what “Bath Salts” are because it’s a bunch of CRAP. There are no real verifiable sources cited on some very key parts of the story where very bold statements are presented as fact without evidence. You have brought up an excellent point in that at NO point during this story does this idiot even bother to mention the drug by anything other than it’s slang term. This is how urban legends get started. She pulled this out of her ass, completely, using the same formulaic crap that was used a hundred years ago to scare people away from “Reefer”, and later on LSD, and later on PCP, and later on Crack, and later on Meth, and now the ambiguous “bath salts”. Overstating the availability of this stuff is another thing that really pisses me off. She claims that you can find this at “any 7-11″, leading one to believe that clerks are openly selling this stuff to kids. The fact is, the drug that *was* commonly referred to as bath salts (I’m not even going to say what the chemical name is because I do not want to be responsible for starting a panic over nothing) AND it’s analogues were banned by emergency scheduling via the DEA back in SEPTEMBER. The people responsible for manufacturing were round up in a rather dirty “sting” operation (they were, after all, manufacturing a perfectly legal product until *surprise*) and crucified in federal court. This is a pathetic, lazy attempt at journalism where the idiot reporter did not think about the far reaching implications of the potential firestorm she could be starting. She just did what others are paid to do; sensationalize one aspect of this so that it appears as though there’s an easy to swallow answer for something heinous that’s just happened, and make sure it’s something relatively unknown (if this were a big problem, do you not think you’d have heard about it already?) and scaring the hell out of people until they demand something be done….when the reality is there’s not enough evidence to link this to the type of behavior they are linking it to, and it’s a moot point because IT IS NO LONGER BEING MADE. And I can guarantee you the whole notion of this supposed “bath salt party” is retarded. OK…let’s be rational. If there were a house full of people, all taking this substance that turns you into a raging psychotic with animal like savagery that is compelled to cannibalize someone, why was this the only instance of said cannibalism that night? Why did the other guy not fight back? I thought it was supposed to make you superhuman….yet no evidence of a comic-book style fight where windows were broken and minor earthquakes seem to have rocked the hotel. Which EVEN IF this guy WAS on one of the last packets of bath salt in america, he is obviously the exception, and not the rule. Now people are trying to link other such grotesque crimes to this drug that no one seems to be able to properly identify (it is actually a substance VERY similar to Ritalin and has about the same effect in reality – a stimulant that couldn’t be further from the hallucinogen LSD). I’m livid because we still don’t get it…PROHIBITION HAS NOT AND DOES NOT WORK and even though this particular story is a non issue REAL STORIES will pop up at some point when others try to get high “legally” on some unknown new drug. I can guarantee you there are other, stronger, verifiable common threads between all these effed up killings lately. How much you want to be they all had caffeine in their system? Or had drank alcohol recently? Or had been on some kind of psychiatric medication? No mention of that. Nope. Has to be something we can demonize. Notice how the evidence presented is all vague and anecdotal at best. In other words, DON’T Believe this story. She should lose her job for writing such utter crap. Or maybe go work for the tabloids.
Ahh crap. I misread the question. Well. This is a great response if the question had been “STREET Drugs” not “STRKE DRUGS”….and was linked to from the article about bath salts. Fuck.
I asked Dan, he said it is called “santorum”.
The Food and Drug Administration approved the latest in a class of new anticlotting drugs to prevent stroke—Xarelto from Johnson & Johnson and Bayer AG—but overruled its own staff\’s analysis in doing so.
WHAT THE HELL? What does that have to do with anything?
