Microgram: The Northeastern Illinois Regional Crime Laboratory (Vernon Hills) recently received 140 mottled tablets with a 'shark' logo on one face and half-scored on the opposite face, suspected MDMA [...]. The exhibits were seized in Vernon Hills by the Lake County Metropolitan Enforcement Group (details sensitive). Analysis of the tablets (total net mass about 42 grams) by Marquis and Mecke color testing and GC/MS, however, indicated only trace MDMA (not confirmed) and 1-(3-chlorophenyl)piperazine (mCPP; not quantitated but a high loading based on the TIC). mCPP is a metabolite of trazodone (an antidepressant), and is not controlled in Illinois; however, it is being increasingly encountered as a MDMA-mimicking compound. This was the first submission of mCPP, and also the first ever submission of 'shark' logo tablets, to the laboratory.
