This info is courtesy of Erowid and their sister arm Ecstasydata . It is a revies of DEA testing as published in the DEA's bulletein "the Microgram" over the 2008- 2009 period.
A few notes: The (#) before the chemicals is the number of (unique) pills tested with that result. By unique I mean from a particular submission. Some infact appear to be the same pills, but seized in different parts of the country. And one can not definitively say they are the same pill from same batch/source- merely that the have a similiar appearance.
Some pills have a (#) after some of the chemicals. This is a rough ratio of the chemicals to each other in that particular pill. (of course- if the # is followed by a mg that would indicate it was the weight of the substance not the ratio). I should also note there is 1 entry where the mg appears to have been left off- though it could in theory be a ratio- I noted it with a ? )
Illicit dosage forms containing mCPP
In challenge tests of the serotonin system in psychiatry, mCPP is almost always used orally with doses typically up to 0.75 mg/kg, i.e. up to about 50mg for a 70kg person (Tancer and Johanson, 2001, 2003; Gijsman et al., 1998). Illicit mCPP is normally consumed orally, but some was seen in powdered form, so there is the possibility that it could also be snorted or injected. The amount of mCPP in illicit tablets was variable, and some contained other drugs as well. Nevertheless, the amounts of mCPP found in illicit tablets were broadly comparable to those used in clinical investigations. For example, of 16 samples quantified by the Dutch DIMS in 2004 and 2005, two contained 8mg mCPP or less and the remainder contained 22–46mg. Later samples examined by the DIMS in 2005 contained substantially higher amounts of mCPP (62, 72 and 80mg). The majority of the samples were tablets bought as "Ecstasy", but two samples were powders sold as cocaine.
Some recent seizures showed pills that allegedly contain a total of 150mg of
four different piperazines: mCPP, pCPP, MeOPP and TFMPP. In 2 out of the 12 Hungarian seizures, tablets contained both mCPP and MDMA. In the UK, MDMA was also found mixed with mCPP in tablets, where it was estimated that the two substances were present in almost equal amounts. In the Netherlands, one sample of mCPP contained 1% cocaine. In France, the tablets collected were bought as Ecstasy or MDMA (six cases), artisanal Ecstasy (one case), one case involving MDMA mixed with either LSD or ketamine, and MDEA (one case).
Here is a recent publicationof the French government:
Is 4-methylephedrone, an “Ecstasy” of the twenty first century?
A capsule, presumed to contain ecstasy, was seized in 2007 and transmitted to the laboratory of the IRCGN for confirmation purpose. However, after chemical analysis using ion mobility spectrometry, gas chromatography-electron ionisation mass spectrometry (GC-EI/MS), nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR), and liquid chromatography, electrospray ionisation mass spectrometry (LC-ESI/MS), the substance was identified as 4-methylephedrone and not as ecstasy. This case was an example of the development of new addictive drugs, specifically designed to by-pass current legislation, and generally called `designer drugs'.

There is some info from the German site "partypack"
Results from samples collected in Zarautz and TOULOUSE IN FEBRUARY 2009
2 > 98% MDMA
an interesting note- on another spanish testing organizations site (energy control) they mention crystal form of mdma circulating with a strong smell- apparently botched synth w/ adulterants added. Interesting though was the precursor used- piperonal and not saffrole. One more reason turtle wants to move to spain...
I can not find testing results info on Energy Control .
Found info on check-it! - will take a while to decipher as its not in the most user friendly format.

Some results from the Swiss group Eve&Rave. Results are from 2008-2009. Out of 64 + pills tested 41 contained piperazines as their main ingredient. 4 would be considered bunk, 4 contained 4FMA as the main ingredient and 7+ were actually 2-cb. Which leaves 8 "ecstasy" pills...
first- some notes on the adulterants.
Domperidoneis an antidopaminergic drug, developed by Janssen Pharmaceutica, and used orally, rectally or intravenously, generally to suppress nausea and vomiting.
Metoclopramide is an antiemetic and gastroprokinetic agent. Thus it is primarily used to treat nausea and vomiting
Buflomedil is a vasoactive drug used to treat claudication or the symptoms of peripheral arterial disease. It is currently not approved by the FDA for use in the United States.
the piperazine pills
Pills containg Piperazines as the primary ingredient (41 total)

some new results courtesy ecstasydata. These were user submitted pills. Testing via GC/MS numbers in parentheses() indicatee number of different pills with those same results. Numbers after the chemicals represent the ratios they existed in those pills. A couple samples the ratio was not quantified- no explanation given
(1) MDMA 10
(2) MDMA 30
(1) MDMA 2
Caffeine ratios not stated
(2) BZP 1
(1) MDMA 5

Reason: Automerged Doublepost
these results are from a swiss outreach program (saferparty?) offering lab testing of pills. Some of the first results I've seen of pills having 4-methylmethcathinone aka MEPHEDRONE as a main ingredient. ~it is unclear why some ingredients are not quantified~
and to tack on- the last 3 months (oct-dec) of the DEA microgram were finally made public.
Not much in the way of ecstasy pills: (the first two were ~probably~ not being sold ass ecstasy
5-meo-mipt (submitted as suspected ecstasy and dmt)
TFMPP and Dapoxetine -
Dapoxetine is found in Priligy tablets. Priligy is approved for use in some European countries, but has not been approved for use in the United States. TFMPP tablets with dapoxetine have been seen by several different laboratories in Alabama.
