An investigation conducted by the Sydney Morning Herald found that bath salts are readily available for purchase on the Internet.
A popular bath salt called “Eight Ballz” costs $20 per gram with a minimum order of $200. Eight Ballz provides the user with “more strength and energy”. However, if the customer was looking for “something more like cocaine,” then the brand “a-PVP” is recommended, which costs $80 per gram with a minimum order of four grams.
Payments for the bath salts are made through Western Union.
