09/26/2017 #TestItTuesday Alert: Powder Sold as MDMA Testing as 3-MMCMadalyn McElwain
Powder sold as MDMA tested as 3-Methylmethcathinone (or 3-MMC), a synthetic entactogenic stimulant of the cathinone chemical class that produces stimulating, entactogenic and mild hallucinogenic effects when administered.
3-MMC comes in a white powder or crystallized form which produces a powerful, fast-acting but short-lived euphoric stimulant-entactogen effect when ingested. If taken too frequently or in excessive amounts, it can induce compulsive redosing, paranoia, anxiety, delusional states and stimulant psychosis.
Very little data exists about the pharmacological properties, metabolism, and toxicity of 3-MMC, and it has little history of human usage. 3-MMC first became available on the online research chemical market, shortly after the banning of mephedrone. It is a prominent example of a contemporary designer drug specifically chosen to mimic and/or replace the functional and structural features of its recently-controlled predecessors.
Always test before you ingest to avoid highly adulterated or misrepresented substances. Purchase your DanceSafe drug checking kit here.
