A white colored ‘Watson’ pill sold as Percocet (Oxycodone and acetaminophen) was submitted from Boynton Beach, FL but tested as U-47700 (nicknamed “U4,” “pink,” or “pinky”), a highly potent and short-acting synthetic opioid that is about 7.5 times the potency of morphine. The tablet was printed with “Watson 932” on one side and blank on the other, making it a counterfeit Percocet. According to the EcstasyData.org, the Marquis, Mecke, and Mandelin did not react.
We urge our community to keep in mind that drug markets are expansive and these substances may appear in locations other than the submission’s origins. Always test before you ingest to avoid ingesting misrepresented substances. Purchase your DanceSafe drug checking kit here using the code ‘WeMissDSatEF’ to take 15% off now through June 21.
