#TestIt Alert Issued for Meridian, MSMadalyn McElwain
Two pressed tablets sourced from Georgia and sold as ecstasy were submitted from Meridian, Mississippi. Neither tested positive for MDMA.
The first pill is a multicolored, rainbow-hued ‘Heisenberg’ tablet (also called Walter White or Hipster). The pill tested as mostly caffeine with trace amounts of methamphetamine. The sender note states that the tablet ‘doesn’t react to Marquis or Mandelin tests’. There was a ‘very slight change’ on Marquis according to Ecstasydata.org’s tests, but the substance did not react with Mecke or Mandelin.
The second pill is a predominantly white ‘Hello Kitty face’ tablet with very light blue and yellow bits, also sold as ecstasy. The tablet tested as caffeine, methamphetamine, and N-Ethylpentylone, a substituted cathinone structurally similar to pentylone. Cathinones are colloquially known as “bath salts.” Little is known about N-Ethylpentylone and its effects, as its physiological and toxicological actions have not been characterized.
The Hello Kitty tablet turned a faint orange/yellow on Marquis, a light yellow on Mecke, and yellow-green on Mandelin.
