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.
