Three 12-Year-Old Girls Hospitalised After Taking Ecstasy Tablets

Three 12-Year-Old Girls Hospitalised After Taking Ecstasy Tablets

Another day, another pill-related warning. Only this time, the people involved are just 12 years old.

The three girls involved were rushed to hospital after taking 'Teddy Tablet' ecstasy pills. According to the Mirror, the incident happened at around 9.50pm last night at the Salford Precinct shopping centre.

Sadly, the trio are still reportedly in a serious condition and are being monitored.

Detective Chief Inspector Chris Walker, of GMP's Salford Borough, told the press: "Sadly, three more young people, who are only 12-years-old, have taken ecstasy and ended up in hospital.

"The girls took a type of ecstasy described as 'Teddy Tablets.' It is imperative young people understand the implications and avoid taking drugs, to stop any more young people ending up in hospital."

The police have warned the public to hand in any of these pills they may be in possession of.

This comes after experts warned that 2016 might be the 'worst time to start taking MDMA'.

The Global Drug Survey 2016 released findings after it polled 50,000 ecstasy users and found that much stronger pills and powders are now in circulation. This means it's fair to say the risks are now greater as it's now much easier for users to unknowingly take too much.

Dr Adam Winstock, from the Global Drug Survey, told Newsbeat: "2016 might be the worst time to start taking MDMA in a generation."

Be careful out there, lads.
