Australian Man Dead from Ecstasy-PMA
Posted by Childress on July 30, 2006
PMA is back. The cheap drug is periodically mixed with Ecstasy or sold in place of Ecstasy — with fatal results. It’s happened again, this time in South Australia:
A man who sold a lethal cocktail of party drugs to a workmate has been jailed for 16 months. Christopher Gurney died shortly after ingesting tablets he bought from Damien Aaron Shaw in November 2004
But the workmate’s death could not be used to justify a harsher penalty, a South Australian District Court judge said today.
Both men believed the tablets had been ecstasy, but later analysis showed they had contained a mix of ecstasy and the hallucinogen PMA.
