#TestIt Alert: Misrepresented ‘Beatles Blotter’ Sold as 2C-B in Saskatchewan, CanadaMadalyn McElwain
By: DanceSafe Staff
DanceSafe has received information from a community member in Saskatchewan, Central Canada, about ‘Beatles blotter’ that was sold as 2C-B. According to the individual, the blotter had “a metallic taste that stung the tongue.” A half tab was ingested and it made the individual groggy, but there weren’t any “distinguishing visuals.” The blotter was not tested with reagents.
This is clear misrepresentation, as active doses of 2C-B do not fit on standard blotter paper. For example, a dose of 2C-B at 23 mg (which is within the range for a common dose) would be 23,000 ug, which far exceeds the absorbency capabilities of common blotter. It is unknown what this substance could be.
We urge our community to keep in mind that drug markets are expansive and that this blotter may appear in locations other than the submission’s origins. Always test before you ingest to avoid ingesting misrepresented substances, and so you can adjust your intention, set, and setting appropriately to minimize risks.
