- INTELLIGENCE ALERT - ECSTASY MIMIC TABLETS CONTAINING 5-METHOXY-N-METHYL-&#8232;N-ISOPROPYLTRYPTAMINE (5-MeO-MiPT) IN WASHINGTON, DC The DEA Mid Atlantic Laboratory (Largo, Maryland) recently received a submission of 20 off-white tablets with cherry logos, diameter approximately 8 millimeters, suspected Ecstasy (see Photo 3; note that the color of the tablets is affected by the background - the actual color is off-white). The exhibit was seized by the U.S. Park Police in Washington, DC (circumstances of seizure not reported). Analysis of the tablets (total net mass 3.0 grams) by FTIR, GC, and GC/MS, however, indicated not MDMA but rather N-isopropyl-5-methoxy-N-methyl- tryptamine (more usually named as 5- methoxy-N-methyl-N isopropyltryptamine (5-MeO-MiPT); not quantitated). 5-MeO- MiPT is controlled (Schedule I) as an analogue of 5-methoxy-N,N-diisopropyltryptamine (5-MeO-DIPT, also known as “Foxy-Methoxy”). The Mid-Atlantic Laboratory has encountered other 5-methoxylated tryptamines, but this is the first ever submission of 5-MeO-MiPT.
