‘Donald Trump’ pills found at Bestival contain double MDMA dose

Pills embossed with the likeness of Donald Trump, containing over two doses of MDMA, were found circulating at music festival Bestival.

Not-for-profit company The Loop was testing surrendered drugs on site at the Dorset festival, which was on over the weekend, finishing on Monday.

It found that the pills contained more than 250mg of the drug, and had found similar “Donald Trump” pills across festivals in Europe.

The company tweeted: “Tablets with “Donald Trump” logo tested by @WeAreTheLoopUK at #Bestival2018 containing 250+mg of MDMA – over two doses in one tablet.

“Others tested in Europe with different strengths. Visit The Loop on site for independent drug safety testing and advice.”

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

The super-strong pills were also found on site at Y Not Festival in Derbyshire the previous week by The Loop.

Bestival shared the warning on social media, warning festival-goers not to take the super-strength pills.

The Loop is trying to reduce the amount of drug-related deaths at music festivals by testing drugs on site and warning of dangerous and super-strength pills and batches.

This year was the first time drug testing has been offered at the festival. Last year,  25-year-old Louella Michie died at the festival after consuming the drugs 2C-P, ketamine and MDMA. 

Partygoers were allowed to submit any illegal drugs they had brought onto the site for analysis and receive their results.
