Shark Ecstasy pill.

Shark Ecstasy

Microgram: The Seized Materials Laboratory of the General State Chemical Laboratory's 2nd Chemical Division of Thessaloniki, Greece recently received two submissions of white tablets with a 'Shark' logo, both suspected MDMA (see Photo 6). The first (156 tablets) was from the Drugs Combat Subdivision of West Thessaloniki, while the second (11,151 tablets) was from the Police Department of Edessa (76 kilometers northwest of Thessaloniki); details on the seizures were unavailable. The tablets were 9 millimeters in diameter by 3 millimeters thick, and had an average mass of 299.6 milligrams. Analysis by color test (Marquis), GC/FID, and GC/MS indicated a mixture of 6.5 percent MDMA and 5.9 percent 3-chlorophenylpiperazine (mCPP; not confirmed due to the lack of a standard). This was the first submission of Ecstasy combination tablets of this composition to the laboratory; subsequently, however, the Seized Materials Laboratory of the 3rd Chemical Division of Athens reported the receipt of 100,760 of the same type tablets from two seizures made in Athens. [Microgram Editor's Notes: These tablets are similar in appearance to those recently seized in Vernon Hills, Illinois (Microgram Bulletin 2006;39(10):123); however, the latter tablets contained mCPP but only trace MDMA.]

Shark Ecstasy

Microgram: The Northeastern Illinois Regional Crime Laboratory (Vernon Hills) recently received 140 mottled tablets with a 'shark' logo on one face and half-scored on the opposite face, suspected MDMA [...]. The exhibits were seized in Vernon Hills by the Lake County Metropolitan Enforcement Group (details sensitive). Analysis of the tablets (total net mass about 42 grams) by Marquis and Mecke color testing and GC/MS, however, indicated only trace MDMA (not confirmed) and 1-(3-chlorophenyl)piperazine (mCPP; not quantitated but a high loading based on the TIC). mCPP is a metabolite of trazodone (an antidepressant), and is not controlled in Illinois; however, it is being increasingly encountered as a MDMA-mimicking compound. This was the first submission of mCPP, and also the first ever submission of 'shark' logo tablets, to the laboratory.
