UK-based drug safety initiative, The Loop, continues to do great work in protecting partygoers from the dangers of recreational drug use.

Whilst on-site at Secret Garden Party over the weekend, they discovered several causes for concern, including super-strength pills containing nearly 3x the average amount of MDMA and N-ethylpentylone getting sold as powdered MDMA.

The Loop were at the festival in Abbots Ripton operating their voluntary drug safety testing unit, where they offer confidential harm reduction guidance to anybody that wants to use their service.

During the weekend, the group came across several potential concerns and has since issued warnings on their Instagram page – highlighting the substances in question.

Although the event may be over, there are still potential concerns about other batches in circulation at festivals this summer.

Out of the four warnings issued following SGP, two are particularly dangerous, and we urge you to keep a close eye out for any cases of circulation going forwards.

The first is a ‘super strength’ pill, pressed into the shape of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle head. The Loop reported some cases of the pills containing up to 2.5x (280mg) the average MDMA dosage.

The group also reported instances of N-ethylpentylone sold as powdered MDMA. However, the side effects include insomnia and, at times, psychosis for around 12-48 hours after taking it.

As always, you should exercise caution if partaking in recreational drug usage of any kind in any environment. For more information on harm reduction and to stay up to date with other warnings, follow The Loop on Instagram.
