Red Mitsubishi Repackaging Hides PMA

I've heard kids say taking Ecstasy can be less risky if you buy from a dealer you know and trust. Sorry, but people who make a living selling drugs aren't to be trusted. In fact, here's case where the word is getting out that unscrupulous dealers were selling PMA -- much more dangerous than Ecstasy -- as "Red Mistubishis." As sales dropped, rather than dump the dangerous PMA, they simply ground it up and repackaged it.

DOCTORS fear a deadly designer drug responsible for recent deaths is being rebadged by backyard manufacturers to trick users. It is understood drug makers are changing the logo and shade of the dangerous Red Mitsubishi pill so users think they are taking a less potent drug.

Royal Adelaide Hospital research fellow Dr David Caldicott said he was concerned the pills were being "recrushed and sold" as other labels, including a pill with a "Red Crown" logo. He said users were then oblivious to the drug's dangers, which have received widespread media coverage.

"We have spoken to two independent sources, both of whom have expressed concerns this week that Red Mitsubishis have been crushed," Dr Caldicott said.

i use ecstacy frequently and had a red mitzi last year. they where really bad or good depending how you look at things.
i think it(e's) should be sold leagally made in clean labs by chemists( also taxed) because what you by in the street is any thing the cooks want to put in it thats cheap and f#@ks you up like rat poison.
