LAS VEGAS (KSNV & MyNews3) -- News 3 has a special report on a synthetic street drug that has police scrambling. It is bath salts sold to teens and it is cheap and easy to make.

News 3 has the information you need to know about this cocaine copy-cat chemical killer.

These drugs have nothing to do with bathing but instead these o-called "bath salts" are snorted, smoked or injected. The bottom line is that they are destroying lives.

News 3’s Reed Cowan is investigating.

A lot of parents wouldn't even know what these drugs looks like. People familiar with these drugs say they're the newest evil on the drug scene.

Made by your run of the mill "street chemists" they can contain any number of chemicals designed to destroy. The father of a Clark County teen gave News 3 some seemingly innocent containers of a synthetic drug he says killed his son.

Would you know what these drugs look like if you found them? After Reed’s report, we hope you will.
