Two Antigo women are facing charges after they're accused of selling bath salts to an informant.

Ashleigh Kinney, 27, and Christy Hicks, 36, are both due in Langlade County Court Monday and are expected to be charged with two counts of distributing a hazardous substance.

According to court documents on two occasions in May, Kinney and Hicks were both present during the sales. Police say the two sold 2.6 grams of bath salts for $190.

“Bath salts” do not contain bath salts but refer to a type of designer drug, made illegal in the US in 2010. The drug stimulates the central nervous system like meth, plus can cause violent hallucinations paranoia. The active ingredient in bath salts, methylenedioxypyrovalerone, also known as MDPV, is as much as 10 times stronger than cocaine.
