Orange-coloured ecstasy pills embossed with the likeness of the president Donald Trump, containing over two doses of MDMA, were found circulating at music festival ‘Bestival’.
Bestival, which held its annual event between 2-5 August, said it had warned festival-goers of the dangers of the new “Donald Trump” drug via social media once it became aware it was on site.

The company warned that users cannot tell the strength of the ecstasy pill just from sight, as there are varying batches of the “Donald Trump” pill, some strong, some not.
