Groovin the Moo pill tests find lethal stimulant, paint and toothpaste in drugs

The pill-testing trial at Groovin the Moo in Canberra has found some lethal and odd ingredients in what many festival-goers believed to be party drugs.

The Australian-first initiative led to the discovery of new drugs authorities were not aware were circulating in the ACT.

A total of 85 substances were tested at the music festival over the weekend in an Australian first by Safety and Testing and Advisory Service at Festivals and Events (STA-SAFE), with many consumers surprised by what was revealed.

They found some "quite pure … high quality" ecstasy, as well as cocaine and ketamine.

More troubling, though, was the discovery of two highly toxic chemicals, including the "absolutely lethal" N-Ethylpentylone (ephylone), which is responsible for a number of mass overdoses around the world.

STA-SAFE member and emergency doctor David Caldicott said ephylone is a stimulant that can cause circulation problems, lethal heart palpitations and hallucinations that can cause dangerous behaviour.
