    POMPANO BEACH, FL - JUNE 17: Broward Sheriff's Office Sergeant Ozzy Tianga (L), along with other Deputies, deal with a man who was suspected of being under the influence of the drug Flakka on June 17, 2015 in Pompano Beach, Florida. The Sheriff's Office is on the front lines to keep people from the drug, categorized as a bath salts, which has become an epidemic among users because the cheap synthetic drug made in overseas pharmaceutical plants can be swallowed in capsule form, snorted, injected, or smoked via an e-cigarette. Some of the effects of the drug include body overheating, a heightened sense of euphoria and greater propensity for uncontrollable violence. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)
