HARRISBURG, PA - Pennsylvania moves one step closer to making bath salts illegal.


The state senate has approved a ban on the so-called synthetic drugs.


Chemicals found in bath salts are known to cause hallucinations and a "meth - like" high.


The new ban covers other synthetic drugs designed to mimic the effect of real drugs as well, like k-2 -- or fake weed.


The bill now heads to the state house for its approval.
