Blue Teslas – Clear and Present Danger for UK Clubbers and Festivalgoers

The pills – thought to contain a mixture of cocaine & MDMA – have been linked to deaths and hospitalisations in the UK over the last few months.

Blue Teslas - the Extra-strong Pill Taking Clubs and Festivals by Storm

We are so blessed to be having a festival season of any sort this year, given the events of the last 18+ months and the global pandemic that has turned life upside down.

This weekend just passed saw possibly the most wholesome collection of festivals & club shows to date since UK nightlife reopened just over a month ago. The likes of Creamfields, Reading, Leeds, All Points East, Junction 2 and many more events got their first slice of physical operation in almost two years, as festivalgoers descended on stages across the country.

With so much positivity to behold, there was also a strangely marring undertone spread across the board. Since clubs reopened on 19th July, several unfortunate events – some even fatal – have involved an increasingly popular super-strength ecstasy pill.

News spread quickly late last week of a man in his early 20s, caught trying to smuggle in an unknown amount of the allegedly deadly pills into Creamfields festival – at Daresbury, near Warrington, on Thursday.

A spokeswoman for Cheshire Police said he wasn’t arrested but told to “voluntarily appear at a police station at a later date”.

The tablets, which are often come blue or orange and in the shape of a shield with the electronic car manufacturer’s logo on, contain a much higher and more concentrated dose of MDMA (methylenedioxymethamphetamine) than the traditional Class A substance in its usual format.

This latest discovery means that the pills are now stretching across a large portion of the UK, circulated as far south as Bristol and now the North West of England.

Earlier this year, a 21-year-old died at a Tottenham nightclub after taking ecstasy pills & the Blue Tesla has also been linked to another death in Bristol in July.

There is no denying that dark pharma is making up for lost time over the last 18+ months, but the consequences are already rearing their ugly head – at the expense of lives.

There is also an argument that the crackdown on illicit substances only leads to even stronger products – as they become harder to get your hands on.

Recreational drug use and electronic music have a long and misunderstood relationship, but is it more volatile now than ever? Only time will tell!
