British media report that several cities in the UK have ‘orange’ ecstasy pills on the market with images of Donald Trump’s face printed on it. According to a user, “his head almost exploded” after using them. The pills cost around €30 a piece although other sources claim they are going for about £8 a pill or £20 for three. The pills are sold via Darknet, one of the darkest areas on the internet where the illegal drug industry flourishes. The pills, which come from The Netherlands, are also being sold on the UK streets, where they’re immensely popular and sell like crazy.
As is written on Darknet, the pill is a “pure quality Donald Trump pill (…) very nice press, really detailed. Comes in the actual shape of the head of the president of the USA.” Finally, the site says:
“Trump makes partying great again!”
Ecstasy has been a lot in the UK news lately. In June, an 18-year-old man from St Helier died from a “particularly strong” batch of ecstasy tablets. The tablets had the Ikea logo printed on it. And before that, a teenager from Devon died and two others were hospitalised after taking ecstasy at a party in May. And in March, four 13-year-old schoolgirls from Manchester were taken to hospital after taking ‘teddy bear’ ecstasy tablets.
In a statement, the UK police:
“strongly advises members of the public not to take these tablets in the interests of their health.”
