Dealdy Powdered Ecstasy

News out of England (via the Newcastle Journal) of a new form of Ecstasy that's already proved lethal:

Danger drug

A POTENTIALLY lethal drug, on sale on the internet, has been found in the region after a raid on a home in Chester-le-Street.

Detectives from the National Crime Squad recovered a quantity of the new powder form of Ecstasy known as 2-CI, which has now been sent for forensic analysis. It has already led to the death of an American man and police and drugs prevention agencies are working to save further lives.

2-CI is shorthand for 2,5-dimethoxy-4-iodophenethylamine, a halucigen similar to MDMA (Ecstasy)
