The DEA South Central Laboratory (Dallas, Texas) recently received 37,954 tablets, suspected Ecstasy. The tablets were seized by Texas Department of Public Safety personnel incident to a routine traffic stop in Amarillo. The exhibit was comprised of four different types of tablets/imprints: blue tablets with an 'm&m's' imprint, yellow tablets with an alligator imprint, yellow tablets with a 'Thundercat' imprint, and purple tablets with a bomb imprint. Analysis of the tablets indicated each tablet type contained 86.1 - 95.3 milligrams/tablet of 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine hydrochloride (MDMA), ketamine (<5%), and caffeine (not quantitated). MDMA tablet submissions to the South Central Laboratory in recent years have primarily contained low-level amounts of MDMA with mixtures of methamphetamine and/or other controlled substances.
