You’ve probably been living under a rock if you haven’t heard ofÂ PokÃ©mon GoÂ – the latest gameÂ to grace the modern world and take cell phones by storm. Though it’s been beneficial in a number of ways – raising Nintendo’s stocks and getting users outdoors and exercising – the negative consequences are rising with the positive ones.
One negative consequence in particular is concerning: the creation ofÂ PokÃ©mon super-strength ecstasy pills. The Sunday People reported that drug dealers have begun to manufacture these pills in the shape of variousÂ PokÃ©mon; the pills are then confined with 2C-B and smuggled on the dark net drug markets. According to reports the drugÂ markets haveÂ currently only been accessed from the UK, but it is only in due time that we can expect these sales to grow internationally. The price, too, is concerning – 50 doses forÂ Â£49.71. UK dealers pay with bitcoin currency.
A gang source in Manchester Âreportedly revealed: âThere are hundreds of thousands of these pills being pressed in Holland and Germany and shipped here.” He explained that the appeal is massive, and there’s no stopping them.
“Chances of them being interceptedÂ are pretty slim. Sell them for a fiver a go and you make a wedge. Thereâs massive demand. Pills are back in a big way.â
