A peach colored “Pink Bartok” tablet with was submitted from Chicago, IL. This sample was sold as Ecstasy/MDMA, but did not test as such. It was found to contain 3 (active) parts Methylsulfonylmethane (an organic sulfur-containing compound that is often take as a joint health supplement), 2 (active) parts caffeine, and 1 (active) part methamphetamine. The tablet was printed with Bartok the Bat’s face on both sides. According to the EcstasyData.org, the Marquis reagent turned an orange color, and the Mecke and Mandelin did not react.
