Undercover agent in 'Bath Salts' bust: Users believe it has the 'same effects as meth and cocaine'

A drug bust in New Hampshire raising fears about a new class of lethal drugs that cause suicides and psychotic behavior.
At the center of the bust was the substance we've been reporting on, bath salts.

And they were just found in big quantities in the small community of Plaistow, New Hampshire, a town of nine thousand people. Police seized more than 100 thousand dollars of the drug from this convenience store over the weekend.

Since last October, America has seen a concerning trend of bath salt use throughout the country, prompting the DEA to ban three chemicals found in the lethal drug. Bath salts are suspected in this horrifying assault in Miami last month among others around the country.
Detective George Wickson is an undercover agent who made the bust in Plaistow, and we are keeping his identity hidden as he is still investigating for the drugs, and he's OutFront.
