Have you seen this video? You should watch it; everybody’s doing it.
Whether the reasons for watching were because of interest in the topic, information about the drug or just out of curiosity, clearly Navy Medicine has struck a chord with its audience when they launched the video, and the related campaign.
Lt. George Loeffler, a Navy Medicine psychiatry resident at the Naval Medical Center San Diego, who was interviewed for the video, couldn’t have made a more compelling case for avoiding bath salts, “I would say not just as the naval officer, but as your doctor, bath salts will not only jack up your family and your career, it will jack up your mind and body too.”
Synthetic drugs as a whole have been in the crosshairs of the Navy for a while, and the zero tolerance policy on the use of bath salts and synthetic marijuana or, spice, isn’t just limited to sailors.
If you’re thinking you won’t get caught you might be surprised to hear former Petty Officer Kayla O’Leary‘s story. Her story is a warning to those that are curious about the drug because trying it, or any illegal substance, just once will end your military career.
