Alert issued to schools after several children take 'super-strong' ecstasy tablets

Schools in Leyburn, Catterick and Richmond regions of Yorkshire have been issued with an alert following the hospitalisation of several children after they took ‘super-strong’ esctasy tablets.

A ‘wake up call’ from local police and the council highlighted the potentially fatal dangers of such drugs. “While ecstasy use in North Yorkshire was rare, taking a single tablet could lead to “very serious health complications and can even be fatal”.” said Dr Lincoln Sargeant, the council’s director of public health.

The tablets in questions, Orange coloured with Tesla stamps, contain as much as 240mg of mdma. Per drugwise, the current average is around 125mg per pill, up from 50-80mg per pill in the 2000’s.
