"Chemicals Used in "Bath Salts” Now Under Federal Control and Regulation
DEA Will Study Whether To Permanently Control Three Substances

OCT 21 - WASHINGTON, D.C. – The United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) today exercised its emergency scheduling authority to control three synthetic stimulants (Mephedrone, 3,4 methylenedioxypyrovalerone (MDPV) and Methylone) used to make products marketed as “bath salts” and “plant food”. Except as authorized by law, this action makes possessing and selling these chemicals, or the products that contain them, illegal in the United States. This emergency action was necessary to prevent an imminent threat to the public safety. The temporary scheduling action will remain in effect for at least one year while the DEA and the United States Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) further study whether these chemicals should be permanently controlled."

Seeing a lot of this in Ohio...generally at least a daily occurrence. A new version of it is being marketed as a scratch remover for phone or ipod/ipad screens. It's called M-Shine and their website allows you to see how the product skirts the laws in your area.
The chemists making this will keep tweaking an isomer here and there in an attempt to keep it legal, I'm sure. Just like the synthetic marijuanas, where they've moved from K2 which has been banned in some areas, to K3.
