The proposed investigation of the illicit bath salts market will clarify the subculture developing around use and sales, including changes in product, pricing and packaging, and levels of market- and use-related violence. The study will also document users' perceptions of health and safety risks; for example, it will identify subculture etiquettes by which regular users may modulate consumption so as to avoid serious consequences. The knowledge emerging from this study will enable the development of more accurate drug education, prevention, treatment and health related programs for bath salts users.
