Legal highs

As much as officials agree a danger lurks in bath salts and synthetic marijuana, they do not believe those types of “legal highs” are widely used in this region.

While synthetic marijuana has been around for a while, bath salts are relatively new on the scene. Both can be easily obtained locally.

“I know it’s here, but I haven’t seen it a lot,” said city police officer Ken Mains.

Mains believes it is critical that parents are aware of the products.

“Parents need to know what to look for in case their kids are doing it,” he said.
