Synthetic substances that mimic marijuana, cocaine and other illegal drugs are making users across the nation seriously ill, causing seizures and hallucinations so intense that thousands of them seek help at emergency rooms. At the request of The Associated Press, the American Association of Poison Control Centers analyzed nationwide figures on calls related to synthetic drugs. The findings showed an alarming increase in the number of people seeking medical attention. (AP Photo/The Patriot-News, Chris Knight) MANDATORY CREDIT

Thinking about snorting "bath salts"? Yes, the LSD-like synthetic narcotic has become wildly popular because it's easily -- and legally -- obtainable and it doesn't show up on drug tests. The following video, produced by the United States Navy, may give you pause, however.

As you'll see through the eyes of a serviceman using bath salts, your friends may appear to transform to demons and zombies, you stand to wind up in emergency surgery -- or, possibly, Davy Jones' Locker -- and, even if you survive, the hallucinations and paranoid delusions can linger after the high is gone, for weeks.

No matter what, this video will stay with you a lot longer than that.
