  • 1. 22st July 2011 Rolex tablets Courtesy of the Norwegian Focal Point Drug Alert Four-leaf clover tablets Courtesy of the Netherlands PMMA Forensic Institute (ParaMethoxyMethylAmphetamine)PMMA is a Class A drug which is known to be circulating in Scotland.It is a very toxic stimulant and has been found in tablets that may ‘E=XTC’look like ecstasy and ‘legal highs’.Since last summer, PMMA has been responsible for 19 deaths on theEuropean mainland.From forensic analysis, we know that PMMA is present in pink tablets ‘Mind Candy’with a Rolex Crown logo and white tablets with a four-leaf cloverlogo. Some products claiming to be ‘legal highs’ have also beenfound to contain PMMA – see images. We know that PMMA hasbeen identified in powder form too and it is possible that PMMA willbe present in many other illicit products and tablets with other logos.The stimulant effects of PMMA are not as potent as MDMA (ecstasy) ‘Xtacy ULTRA’so users may feel inclined to take more, thereby increasing the risk ofa fatal overdose. Users are strongly advised to avoid the products listed. ‘Doves Red’ White tablets - No image For information and advice about drugs and their risks visit: ‘Doves Red Ultra’ Grey tablets - No image www.knowthescore.info or ring KtS free on 0800 587 587 9 .
