Gov. Peter Shumlin announced Wednesday that the state is seeking a permanent ban on the white powdery substance, but is implementing an emergency temporary rule in the meantime.
"While it's not at epidemic proportion in Vermont, we're taking preemptive action today to make sure bath salts are joined on a list of drugs that are banned for use in the state of Vermont," said Gov. Peter Shumlin, D-Vermont.
Shumlin says the ban is necessary and points to places like Bangor, Maine, where there's an epidemic of the designer drug.
