Dangerous green rolex pills are in circulation again, after reports of them at UK music festival.
An alarm was raised among the visitors of T in the Park after the authorities warned that green pills with Rolex logo that were linked to multiple deaths in 2013 have been spotted at the festival. The authorities on the site found the pills that closely matched the description of the infamous fake ecstasy brand that claimed 15 lives in Scotland and Northern Ireland three years ago. Two teenagers died during the festival this year, but it wasn’t immediately clear whether the cases were connected with the pills marked with the recognisable crown symbol.
The pills are suspected to contain the stimulant para-methoxyamphetamine (PMA) instead of MDMA. Ecstasy with this green rolex marking have not been seen in Scotland for a couple of years since the incidents, before they apparently resurfaced at the festival. The police are actively working to determine whether the new batch represents leftover supply that some dealers may have stashed, or it came from a new source.
Since no other seizures of green Rolex pills were made in the recent period, the initial assumption was that only a small quantity was put in circulation. According to the authorities, it isn’t unusual for nearly forgotten batches to turn up at big festivals, so it is probably too early to kick off national-level panic.
T In The Park
For their part, organizers of T in the Park tried to create safe conditions at the festival grounds, going as far as to install clearly visible ‘amnesty bins’, where visitors could dispose of drugs without being sanctioned for possession – Although I would be interested to know how many actually get handed over?
A slight departure from standard practice to stick to general anti-drugs warnings, which aren’t all that helpful to those who just want to avoid overdosing on an unknown substance. There is still a long way to go – legal drug testing as which is sometimes found in Australia and New Zealand – and Newcastle – would be a far more effective alternative that would keep everyone safe from unscrupulous dealers.
