RENO, NV - The Washoe County Sheriff's Office is warning people about what's apparently a new way to get high... and it's perfectly legal.

It's sold as exotic, highly concentrated bath salts, but they're not the type you would use to soak in the tub.

They contain Mephedrone and MPDV, which can cause hallucinations and paranoia if you ingest them, and they could have some of the same effects as Methamphetamine or cocaine.

These fake bath salts are usually sold over-the-counter at convenience stores, head shops and online, in small containers with names such as Tranquility, Red Dove, or Vanilla Sky.
