No Bath Salts Found In "Face Eater"

It wasn't bath salts.

According to a full toxicology report released Wednesday afternoon by the Miami-Dade medical examiner, the only drug detected in the lifeless body of infamous Miami face-chewer Rudy Eugene was marijuana.

"The department's toxicology laboratory has identified the active components of marijuana," the medical examiner said in a statement, according to NBC Miami. "The laboratory has tested for but not detected any other street drugs, alcohol or prescription drugs...This includes ****, LSD, amphetamines (Extasy, Meth and others), phencyclidine (PCP or Angel Dust), heroin, oxycodone, Xanax, synthetic marijuana (Spice), and many other similar compounds."

That's right, it wasn't bath salts, it never was, and it's not going to be. Maybe now the bath salt zombie meme can finally die. I am really getting tired of seeing it over and over again. I can't say I'm surprised to see that marijuana was the only drug found in his body. For the record, I support legalization of the drug, if only to better facilitate it's medical uses as well as turn away those who take it for the thrill of it being illegal. I find it odd that marijuana alone was the cause for Mr. Eugene's bizarre behavior. I would think it probably interacted with an existing mental condition and amplified it in some manner, rather than being the direct cause. Perhaps we'll learn more over time, if scientists are allowed to look at his brain. At least, for now though, we know it wasn't bath salts or some other random drug.

Either that, or this serves as proof that marijuana and psychological disorders do not mix. :XD:

Huh, so all that hype about bath salts was for nothing? Well, Gen, I guess you can put away your "boom stick" now.
