Another case of cement being sold as MDMA is discovered at Gottwood Festival. The police found cement dust and talcum powder.
Having examined amnesty bin hand-ins at the Anglesey event, Chief Inspector Mark Armstrong blasted drug dealers for supplying festival-goers with what they thought were recreational drugs such as MDMA.
Armstrong said: “We have had drugs put into the amnesty bins particularly ketamine and MDMA but at very low levels.
“Interestingly we have also had substances deposited that people had obviously bought believing them to be drugs that were actually things like talcum powder or cement dust and not drugs at all.
“The fact unscrupulous dealers would sell someone pure talcum powder or anything else purporting it to be a drug says it all. If ingested then it could cause serious harm.”
