Beware the bat man!

By johnboy 9 July 2009 81

The police are warning of bad pills they came across last year bearing a Batman imprint and a triple cocktail of drugs:

    ACT Policing is issuing a warning to the public after two separate seizures of ecstasy, which were analysed and found to contain a dangerous mixture of substances.

    The tablets were found to contain Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA), Benzylpiperazine (BZP) and Trifluoromethylphenylpiperazine (TFMPP).

    Overseas cases have shown that the combination of these three substances have can lead to serious illness and death in some cases.

    In a case in Canberra in October 2008, a 24-year-old man was hospitalised after consuming two tablets, one of which contained MDMA, and the other containing BZP and TFMPP.

    Detective Senior Constable Mark Battye, Coordinator of Drug and Alcohol Policy for ACT Policing said “Taking these types of pills may seem harmless at the time, however you simply don’t know what else is in these tablets.

    “People taking these types of tablets are taking a big gamble with their health and their lives. The people making and selling these tablets don’t care, they just want money.

    “These tablets may still be in circulation and were urge anyone who may sight these tablets being sold, or may know some who is selling them to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via the website www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. It is also important to remind members of the public that they can remain anonymous when providing information through Crime Stoppers,” Detective Senior Constable Battye said.

Dope and magic mushrooms grow naturally. Methylenedioxymethamphetamine, Benzylpiperazine and Trifluoromethylphenylpiperazine don’t.

Death Cap Mushrooms, Nightshade and Oleander grow naturally as well…Just because its natural it does not mean it is good for you or not going to kill you…
