#TestIt Alert issued for the Bay Area, CAKristin Karas
By: Lucille L., Communications & Social Media Intern, DanceSafe
A salmon colored tablet was submitted from the Bay Area, CA. This sample was obtained online and sold as Adderall, but did not test as levoamphetamine or dextroamphetamine, the two active ingredients in the prescription medication. The tablet was instead found to contain methamphetamine. On one side, the tablet was stamped with “30” and scored, and had “dp” on the other side (pictured left) resembling a 30mg Adderall tablet, but is indeed counterfeit.
According to EcstasyData.org, the Marquis reagent reacted an orange color, and the Mecke and Mandelin reagents did not react.
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 email@example.com to be featured in a #TestIt Alert.
