Fox News interviews Chris Davis, who has been a drug counselor at Right Step in Houston for more than a decade.
He explains how much the drug landscape is changing all across the country. Bath salts are now as popular as methamphetamine and cocaine.
He has 10 people he's currently working with who are hooked on bath salts, a drug that hit the market about two years ago.
It's a chemical mix that contains amphetamine-like chemicals and Davis says it's just as addictive as other drugs like cocaine and the symptoms vary.
"Hallucinations and delusional, it can be very scary they can be very paranoid," Davis said. "It's similar to what could happen to using methamphetamines."
Davis says he's glad federal agents on cracking down on the synthetic drugs that have landed in smoke shops around the county.
He says it's not a drug to take lightly and it's difficult to shake."It takes a longer time for them to stabilize. It's pretty tough," Davis said.
