'MDMA' which left ten people in hospital over the weekend was spice, say police.
On Saturday 24 June and Sunday 25 June police were called after a number of people were hospitalised after taking what was believed to be a new form of MDMA, known as “pink champagne”.
It is now believed that this substance was in fact a synthetic cannabinoid, like ‘Spice’, however it was sold as MDMA.
Chief Superintendent Neil Evans from GMP’s Oldham and Rochdale boroughs said:
- Police are now investigating where these drugs came from, anyone with any information is asked to contact police on 0161 856 9063 alternatively via 101 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
