A broken cyan blue tablet containing a white powder was submitted from Ohio. This sample was obtained online as “Blue Ice,” and was expected to be Ecstasy/MDMA, but was actually found to contain 10 active-parts N-Ethyl-pentylone, a substitute cathinone, and 1 active-part MDMA.
According to EcstasyData.org, the Marquis reagent reacted a yellow color, the Mecke reacted a light yellow with some blue, and the Mandelin very slightly reacted a light blue.
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.
If you test a misrepresented substance, please submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org to be featured in a #TestIt Alert.
