In the wake of four deaths this past weekend in the UK, it’s obvious that the services and education (or lack thereof) that the government is providing is not enough. While DanceSafe and Bunk Police work tirelessly in the US to educate people of all walks of life, not just ravers, about drugs and safe drug practices, a non-profit harm reduction group called The Loop takes up that mantle in the UK.
The Loop has been documenting an increase in potency of pills in the UK this year popping up around festival time. While some of these may have already fallen out of major circulation in favor of other presses, it’s still important to know what to look out for in case you come across these potentially dangerous batches.
A common ‘dose’ of MDMA in a pressed pill is around 100mg, whereas all of the pills in the alert below generally contain over 200mg, with some even over 300mg. These are dangerous and highly potent presses that should either be taken with extreme caution, with a half dose, or not at all. The Loop has recommended that people should simply not take any of the above mentioned.
