HOLLIDAYSBURG, BLAIR COUNTY - Two Pennsylvania Counties have stopped the sale of the so -called blizzard bath salts.

Luzerne and Lackawanna Counties have both filed injunctions to stop the sale of bath salts; they say are designed to get you high. There have been at least four fatal overdoses in our area connected to bath salt use.

The district attorney's offices in those counties were instrumental in getting the injunction filed. Blair County District Attorney Rich Consiglio says they haven't considered anything like that yet, but he's in favor of anything that gets these bath salts off the shelves.

A bill that would make bath salts and other legal methods of getting high illegal has currently passed the State House of Representatives and is currently before the State Senate.
