    Hi, what code is everyone using for bath salts toxicity? I'm thinking methamphetamine.

    Question Bath Salts

    Since bath salts don't all contain the same chemicals it's hard to distinguish which toxin you are coding. Most bath salts do contain amphetamines and are psychostimulants so my guess would be poisoning by other psychostimulants.

    Default Thanks!

    Thanks for the reply. That is what I am going to use, 969.79, other psychstimulants. I forget the acronym they used, MD__ but when I looked it up that was a psychostimulant.
