Two people have been hospitalised after suffering serious side-effects from taking ecstasy pills known as ‘Blue Punisher’.
One person suffered convulsions and psychosis on Friday and another was very ill and vomiting on Saturday after taking the drug in Bournemouth. Both later confirmed they had taken ecstasy known as ‘Blue Punisher‘, a blue pill with a skull logo that has a strong aniseed or chemical smell.
Detective Inspector Scott Johnson, of Bournemouth CID, said: “We would strongly advise people thinking of taking substances such as this to think again and want to make them aware of this particular batch of drugs.
“You can never be sure what you are taking when you use illegal substances and the side-effects are unpredictable and potentially life-threatening.
“If anyone has any information with regards to the sale of illegal drugs please contact police to report it.”
