It really looks bath salts are getting out of hand. You say "the Louisiana Poison Control office has received 165 emergency calls", which seems like a lot, but take a look at this quote, "From January to April, over 2,700 have become ill after taking synthetic drugs (this figure includes synthetic marijuana, as well as bath salts)" (From: http://www.alltreatment.com/what-are-bath-…).
What I find most interesting is the fact that these 'bath salts' are largely unregulated because of their marketing. As long as they are marketed as they are, doesn't matter how they are used, it will be very difficult for most states to make them illegal. And when they finally are criminalized, the formula and marketing will change slightly, and we will have another problem all over again.
