Microgram: The DEA South Central Laboratory (Dallas, Texas) recently received 185 round, dark green tablets with a dove logo on one side and a raised circular area on the opposite side, 8.5 millimeters in diameter, suspected MDMA [...]. The exhibits were acquired by a DEA Agent in El Paso, Texas (details not available). The tablets were dark green in color, but appeared to actually contain multiple dyes. Analysis of the tablets (total net mass 59.5 grams) by FTIR, GC/MS, GC/FID, GC/IRD, and HPLC confirmed 3,4-methylenedioxy-methamphetamine (60 milligrams/tablet, calculated as the hydrochloride salt), along with trace (less than one percent) cocaine and d,l-methamphetamine. This was the third submission of MDMA tablets containing from trace to low percentages of cocaine to the South Central Laboratory; however, the two previous submissions each consisted of only a single tablet. The laboratory has had four additional submissions of these same tablets since this initial submission.
