User Report: So, I grabbed a couple of these thinking “oh yea” purple starfish. I didnt bother testing because they looked almost exactly like the other ones I had picked up a month or 2 ago.I took one around 10:40pm
First thing I noticed was the taste. It wasnt the taste I was expecting you know that bitter mdma flavor. It had more of an almost sweet strange flavoring to it. I was expecting a very bitter nasty almost, leave my mouth numb kinda of taste but it didnt taste like that at all.

So aboout 40 mins go by and I start to feel the effect. Started feeling really nice like a normal mdma come up, sounds become a little more prevalent lights become a little more brighter… my buddy decides he wants to take off so I go with him to some bar.

Things start to go down hill from there. I start to feel uneasy I get this strange feeling in my arm. My head gets all tingly and my legs feel like they are numb and tingling all over also. My stomach also feels a bit uneasy and I making all kinds of noises. I feel like this for the next 1 1/2 hrs at least.

I decide I’m not liking this trip so I tell him to take me home. While at home I try to relax and maybe 3 1/2 hrs I start to feel some what better. I sit watching TV and I can’t sleep. I end up falling a sleep maybe around 5:30am and I only took 1 pill.

Seems like a long time for 1 supposedly clean mdma pill at least for me. I have a pretty high tolerance and 1 clean mdma medium pill might last me 3 hrs then I can sleep easy afterward.

Anyway I did test the other one I had then next day and it did turn purple with Marquis. It was somewhat a slower reaction, at first it sorta bubbled then it slowly stared to turn dark purple. I had a old blue star left over which I also tested right next to it just to see if the reaction was different and when I drop the marquis on it and reaction was quick and fast straight to purple. Not sure if that means anything.

I could have just had a bad trip that night but I’m not 100% if these are all clean. Anyone else have any experience was the latest batch of starfish?

People should understand that a slow purple reaction on the Marquis Reagent probably indicates the presence of DXM.  Starfish should keep a sample and run it on a Mecke Reagent which turns conclusively yellow if DXM is present.  This should also be a good example that the same brand isn’t always the same pill and a lesson to never buy pills blindly.

A fast purple reaction on the Marquis Reagent would indicate the presence of MDEA.

Did it confuse anyone that the guy who gave the report on these Star Fish is named starfish?
