    Reported 06.10.10 six deaths following the use of PMMA sold as ecstasy.

    The norwegian institute of health came with an statement earlier this month that since this summer six young people have died in Norway after ingesting pills sold as ecstasy, but containg the very dangerous chemical para-Methoxymethamphetamine.

    There has been no statetment as to what locations in the country these young people had their life end or where they lived, although i can report from unsure sources that two of the victims was from Bodø.

    PMMA is also known as "Death" and "Dr.Death". The norwegian health institute now sends out a warning to all users of ecstasy pills that this substance is touring Norway and asks all users to take care when handling this drug.

    The norwegian version of the NCIS has done seizures of PMMA in powder form, but none as pill form.

    That link doesn't work (for me), but any info about dosage? Was one "pill" fatal or did they take a few thinking it was MDMA?

    From the information i can obtain it's still very unsure if they ingested the PMMA thinking it was amphetamine or ecstasy, although it has been done several seizures of PMMA in powder form mostly in the capital Oslo and on the west coast of Norway implying that the format for this drug as of now in Norway is fake amphetamine.

    These six cases has been reported in the last three months which points to a dangerous development in the Norwegian drug trade where chemicals that are proven to be deadly at low doses like PMMA is passed off ass amphetamine or MDMA. Most of the cases were involving people around the age of 20. One of the cases however were involving a 15 year old girl from Bergen who also had a fatal dose of heroin in her system. The first and foremost cause of death in that particular cause was thought to be the heroin although she also had PMMA in her system. This points to a possible contraindication of PMMA and heroin.

    I can see that my link to google transelate got messed up. For more sources please work these links into google transelate or another equal program.
