Police in HRM are issuing a warning about the dangers of street drugs following several recent incidents involving people being hospitalized.
Police say they are investigating “at least a couple of incidents” involving young adults having to be hospitalized after taking ‘MDMA’ otherwise known as ecstasy.
Although the victims were unknown to each other, police say it is believed the incidents are stemming from a bad batch of MDMA circulating within HRM.
In a release issued this afternoon, police are warning people synthetic drugs such as ecstasy are made in unprofessional laboratories by people who have no training or background in chemistry or science.
These drugs can have a severe impact on a person’s health, police adds.
