An analysis centre in Wales has identified some ecstasy pills with very high strength that can be very risky to take. Walesonline spoke to a programme leader Josie Smith who said,
“Ecstasy tablets, way back when rave culture was happening in the late ‘80s, were 70 to 80 milligrams per tablet of MDMA. What we have now is the strength has gone up to 120mg and more. Recently a tablet contained 270mg of MDMA.”
Strength such as these risk overheating to dangerous levels.
