    WARNING - 'Louis Vuitton' designer death drug hits the streets

    A DEADLY batch of ecstasy pills branded one of the most dangerous to ever hit the streets has been linked to at least one death and a spate of overdoses.

    The tablets, imprinted with the Louis Vuitton symbol, are suspected to have been involved in a 22-year-old man's death after a Brisbane house party last weekend.

    Several of his friends also ended up in hospital after taking the same drugs, with emergency department staff confirming a spike in ecstasy overdoses.

    Police, the health department, the ambulance service and the coroner were all alerted to overdoses or a potential bad batch before the death but there has been no public warning.

    Users who have checked the tablets with home testing kits claim they contain the drug PMA (para-methoxyamphetamine), which has markedly different effects to ecstasy and can be lethal in high doses.

    Compounding the danger, there are believed to be two Louis Vuitton batches - one induces standard ecstasy effects, while another looks almost identical but is the one believed to contain PMA and is highly toxic.

    While authorities remained silent, increasingly desperate warnings were posted on Facebook and on drug website Pillreports over the past month.

    "Why hasn't there been a massive warning ... at least 2 people I know have died on them and I have heard of more," valleyboi89 wrote on Pillreports on Thursday.

    "These are the most dangerous pills to ever come to Brisbane."

    On August 24, two days before last weekend's death, another user wrote: "WARNING, I'm sure there are 2 batches going around in Brisbane, my friend's friend had a batch last weekend confirmed PMA and tragically died overnight."

    One woman who overdosed at last Sunday's fatal Brisbane house party said she blacked out about 3pm after taking half a Louis Vuitton tablet. She woke up 24 hours later in the Princess Alexandra Hospital, where she learnt she had been resuscitated by paramedics and was lucky to be alive.

    "One of my friends started convulsing on the floor," the 22-year-old told The Sunday Mail after being contacted this week.

    "He was going into a seizure and then I blacked out. The next thing I know I woke up in the emergency room on a catheter and tubes were sticking out of me.

    "I know there were definitely three of my friends from that party in the emergency ward with me, and unfortunately my friend passed away that day. None of us had any heart problems. He had taken two (pills)."

    Princess Alexandra Hospital confirmed the admissions and warned of an "unusually high" number of people treated in its emergency department after taking ecstasy in recent weeks.

    "There seems to be a cluster of increased presentations over the last three weeks which makes us wonder whether there is a bad batch on the streets," Dr Tina Bazianas said.

    Police confirmed the death of the 22-year-old man last Sunday was being treated as a suspected overdose.

    "Police are investigating information he ingested a pill, or some pills. What that substance is yet to be determined," said Detective Superintendent Steve Holahan of the state drug investigation unit.

    He said he had not been informed of a spike in overdoses but the death was a significant concern.

    "If we had information there was any sort of spike or trend, or people were overdosing, in conjunction with police media and Queensland Health we'd certainly make those announcements," Supt Holahan said.

    The Sunday Mail went to a range of authorities days before Sunday's death after learning of internet warnings about a bad batch of drugs in Brisbane.

    At the time police, the ambulance service, the health department and the coroner could not provide information and no warning was issued.

    On August 14, almost two weeks before Sunday's death, a Brisbane woman warned on Facebook of "fatal overdoses in the last couple of weeks" involving experienced users.

    "If you or someone you know partakes, please be careful. Tell someone if you don't feel right," she wrote.

    Drug and Alcohol Research and Training Australia director Paul Dillon warned authorities needed to act quickly.

    "If there is ecstasy with something like PMA in it, and it did contribute to a death, that (information) needs to be out there," he said.

    Looks like another wave of the "green Mitsu's" from a few years ago. Pity as there is some quality MDMA getting around ozzie. Looks like QLD gets the shit and left overs again. It is shit people have died from these pills (thanks big brother, really looking out for the people by being a wet nurse and saying all drugs are illegal and bad) but unfortunately that is what happens when asshole illicit pill producers and drugs get thrown in the mix. If the stuff is yellow, tan or dark brownish dirt colour chances are it's PMA ie chicken yellow, chicken salt, dr death not MDMA (or PERHAPS MDMA minus a few purification stages). Also taste of PMA vs MDMA is very different but people fuck up casue PMA is made from anethole synthised from star anise or fennel oil and people always go on about how pills have an aniseed taste. They don't really have that much of an aniseed taste IMO but it's similar and aniseed is the easiest way to describe the taste I guess. Get a test kit, this really highlights the importance! Test kits are easy as fuck to fool so get at least 2 different types. Better yet don't take pills unless you have a perscription. Even if you get a "good ecstasy pill" chances are it's only 50mgs of MDMA and some meth. You need at least 80-120 mgs MDMA depending on body mass for a good experience and the meth will kill your MDMA experience, at best it will be MDA like. Again really fucked up people are dying from this batch of pills hope and pray no one else ends up in ED or worse. Thank you for bringing this to the attention of the bluelight community people need to get the word out about these (and possibly other) PMA pills.

    Perhaps investigating the possiblity of obtaining MDMA crystal may be more relevant. I did provide actual useful information ie don't pop pills unless you know whats in them. If you want to quote me do so in context in future as well, looks like the media are not the only one's with this special skill.

    Poledriver, mate it's just me trying to make sense of a shitty event. I did not intend to offend or in anyway reduce the fact someone has died from a product made in the full knowledge it kills. Illicit drug manufactures make the conscious decision to produce PMA pills and are murderers. I took the piss out of the Australian government who not only are NOT informing the public but also partly to blame for the deaths of many people from PMA over the years. Drug war has failed and to continue to take no action to reduce or prevent people dying by providing safe alternatives or manufacturing the product and having strict controls over when and where people can purchase and take popular recreational drugs is criminal in itself. We have become America and until there is change people will continue to end up in ED or worse. I'm sorry for any offence even if none was intended. Do as you wish mate that is what freedom of choice is all about. I wish the government would get their shit together and legalize MDMA or 2C-B (better drug as it's less harsh on the body and no emotional drain the next day) to prevent this happening again.

    EDITORIAL: Deadly recreational pills sold to naive


    A man and woman will appear in a Sydney court today following the alleged seizure of pills, believed to be ecstasy, valued at approximately $150,000. Source: The Daily Telegraph
    The use of so-called recreational drugs can be more like a game of Russian roulette when unscrupulous manufacturers load the gun.

    Ecstasy, the stimulant of choice for thousands of young clubbers and partygoers, is thought by many to be a relatively harmless drug.

    That comforting fallacy might partly explain the fact that government studies have found that more than 10 per cent of Australians over the age of 14 have used ecstasy at some time.

    While it might be benign compared with other drugs, there is no disputing the use of ecstasy comes with a risk and claims a steady toll of young lives.

    That hard truth is reinforced by revelations today that a deadly batch of pills doing the rounds of the Brisbane party scene has taken at least one life and has been responsible for overdoses.

    According to one online expert on chemical contraband, they are the most dangerous pills to ever come to Brisbane.

    The deadly pills, given some spurious credibility by being marketed under the misused fashion logo of Louis Vuitton, are laced with the potentially fatal drug PMA. The gamble is that they mirror another batch of "standard" ecstasy bearing the same stamp.

    The fact that the adulterated ecstasy has been detected by home-test kits is evidence of the sophistication of the market. But the presence of PMA is also evidence of the cynical, ruthless and greedy industry that services the market and cares nothing for the welfare of its young customers.

    However, while the presence of rogue ecstasy is known to the "in" crowd, thousands of casual users are left vulnerable. Police and health authorities seem to have been remarkably slow to either deny the underground whispers or issue official warnings of the deadly pills.

    There is always a danger of crying wolf and feeding the cynicism of those for whom drugs are socially acceptable.

    However, today's Sunday Mail investigation suggests the dodgy ecstasy is out there and it is potentially deadly.

    In this instance, the authorities seem to have been dangerously slow to pick up on the rhythm of the streets. While they remain silent, naive youngsters could be playing a dangerous game.

    We are working on it dude. Rick Doblin from MAPS is the main man in this area.

    Psychedelic Healing Centres will be the source.

    I think, PMA is ok to consume as long as you know you are having it in the first place, and know the exact dosages that you are having etc.
    Its only dangerous when people taking it thinking its MDMA googys and then they take more and more thinking these pills aren't doing their job etc etc and then boom, OD.

    I think, the chick that said she only took "half" is a bit of a bullshitter!

    ^ or a jail cell working for a pittance. the war on drugs does kill people, as well as divide communities and target specific demographics.
    it was founded on prejudice and racism, and we've all been trained (and violently coerced) into accepting and participating in it. we need to move on and evolve out of this.
    the article poledriver links to a couple of posts above this just goes to show how out of touch most of the media and authorities are about the reality of the situation.
    yes, PMA in pills is scary, but the the way ecstasy is reported in the media is 5+ years behind the times. besides the 'bath salts' or 'kronic' press memes, the flood of random misrepresented research chemicals into the drug market is completely absent from the mainstream media.
    i suppose bluelighters are a lot more informed than most people, but the way they talk about pills, you'd think it was 1995 and the majority of 'ecstasy' was MDMA. i have no idea because it's not my scene, but from what i read on here it seems like pills are still very hit-and-miss (more likely miss?).
    i guess we'll be reading about it in the papers in ten years.

    Why is the anger here directed at the government? Surely the scum bags who produced these pills and the low life dealers who sell them should get a lot more heat. I would also direct some blame to a whole section of the ecstasy crowd who for too long have been happy to buy and eat any old shit for the sake of getting fucked up. Quality control and supply and demand are not the government's job. Even if MDMA was some what legal and regulated you would still find people selling this shit at a cut price rate because idiots will love a bargin.

    I would be blaming the government if they had banned test kits but the last time I checked it was within every ones right to test their pills before they consume them.

    Several deaths reported as MDMA-induced in Australia in the mid-1990s are now considered to have been caused by PMA, the users unaware that they were ingesting PMA and not MDMA as they had intended.[12] There have been a number of PMA-induced deaths around the world since then.
    This isn't a new thing. Even in a period when lots more of the pills were real MDMA, we had OD's from PMA laced pills here in Aus.

    Blaming anyone isn't going to help, but it would be nice if the governments and police would put out warnings on their websites or press releases / statements (maybe they do sometimes, i dont know), but I guess they wont (or dont much) as it is an illegal drug and that's that.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Para-Me...tamine#Dangers

    Promoting awareness and test kits is a good thing tho I guess.

    http://www.pillreports.com/index.php..._pill&id=29918

    The kit screens for MDMA, MDA, Pseudoephedrine, Amphetamine, Methamphetamine,

    2C-B, 2C-T, DXM, LSD, Heroin, Cocaine, Opium, Ketamine, Methylphenidate, Mescalin,

    Aspirin, PMA and some of the Piperazines.

    Busty is right here. Supply and demand / Quality control. Every single one of those persons effected by this "PMA" pill all had the right to test their pills with test kits before consuming the product. And if they did test it, and it came up with PMA, I highly doubt they would of continued to consume the pill. Or at least take extra extra percausions before eating em googies.

    People that are willing to buy less than quality products at a cut price aka shit pills with god knows wtf in them for a fraction of a good pill, they are as much to blame as the wankers that are pressing em pills! If I know for a fact a certain pill is def mdma high, but the price of it is twice or three times the price of an shitty ordinary googy, I would go ahead and purchase the expensive one over the cheap one. But how many punters out there would do the same??? Not many, IF ANY.

    i would buy the better product, you would but the better product, im pretty sure busty can afford the better product

    its a pretty fucked up conundrum that you can legally buy a kit to test illegal substances though dont you think?

    its the government problem that its people are forced to buy chemicals that could have been cooked up any where anyhow by anyone...there is no quality control thats the point. so what the government wipes their hands of it because they have allowed test kits to be legal? band aid solution not even that!!

    if i could go the doc or pharmacy and get pharm grade drugs i know i definitely wouldnt fuck around and risk my health for a few bucks scoring off sr or some dude off the street...

    if its not the governments problem that their are australian dying because of dangerous pills passed of as md then whos problem is it?

    supply and demand supply and demand...there is a fucking great demand so why not supply safely? think of all the money the government could make from us lowlife drug users

    supply and demand these scummy dealers are supplying the demand that our useless governments are failing to regulate

    ^ prohibition is a big industry.
    I agree that the blame for this goes to the people that made this batch, but it's frightening how much faith people put in illegal chemists/dealers.
    Drug testing services need to be legally allowed at night spots and so on.
    It just goes to show that this whole drug war thing isn't about protecting people from fuckers that press pma into pills or any other public safety issue.
    My condolences to the friends and families of the victims. What a waste of life.
