Dateline NBC’s Hansen Files this weekend went undercover to investigate the distribution and marketing of “bath salts”. The piece was powerful but unfortunately not very scientific — I would have been more satisfied with it if they had analyzed the components of some of the products they described, such as “Bliss”. ¬†However, the episode is worth watching.
