When he opened the jar of bath salts, a substance authorities consider a synthetic drug, Kevin Jungers says little did he know the monster that would be unleashed.
Jungers is now in jail on possession charges. He says the salts put him on the path back to a cell.
"It's a monster," said Jungers. "There's no other way to describe it."
Jungers says he used meth and other drugs for three decades, but it only took three months for bath salts to destroy his life.
"Sixteen weeks," Jungers says shaking his head. "I did the other for thirty years!"
Now with cuffs on his wrists and ankles, Jungers says he considered himself a soldier that could handle anything.
"That stuff makes meth look like a punk," said Junger. "They say it's five times more potent, I'd say it's more like one hundred times."
