In late July/early August we devoted a few pages to Light Purple Star Fish, which were getting bad reviews, and likely tested as piperazines.  The links are below:

Recently we received a comment from a valued reader, ive done those, further warning us off these bad pills.  Here’s what he said:

ive done those Says:
November 15, 2010 at 7:42 pm e yea those pills are bad. i bought like 30 of them to supply my boys party. we all started poppin 2. we wer all excited for that first jolt and roll, but it didnt come. i just started feeling really uncomfortable, and my jaw clenched like i was rolling. i noticed 2 of the other people disapeared and i found them outside sittin in the middle of the lawn. one of them was crying saying the room was closeing in on them and their clothes were too tight. once we all got out of the hot basement with flashing lights we all started calming down. a few group hugs, pledgein the love and what not. but the VISUALS were crazy! i’ve done lsd and mushrooms but it was never like this. the stars in the sky were explodeing like fireworks, everyone looked like they had glasses on. some people faces completely morphed into ugly creatures with deep wrinkles. my one friend looked like an avatar with blue gem encrusted skin. (all of the intense visuals occured in the dark)luckily i kept my cool because some of these visuals were terrifying and overwhelming. i wound up doing 4 of them by the end of the night. it was the craziest trip. my one friend who took them was there first time. her boyfriend held her all night as she cried that she was blacking out for hours at a time, and that she was dieing. idk about you,but i have never seen anyone have a negetive reaction to pure mdma. i mean half of us had a fun time and just went with the flow and tripped balls. the other half were going crazy. very weird pills. not recomended lol

The most recent round of conclusive test results from the laboratories at gave a comprehensive breakdown on these Star Fish:

2021 Purple Starfish
  • BZP
  • MDMA
  • 3
  • 1
  • 0.1
Oct 29, 2010 Oct 29, 2010 Manchester, NH 365 mg, 10.5 x 6.2

Very tricky on the part of the maker to throw in that 0.1 part MDMA, but for the most part, we see the same volatile mix of BZP and TFMPP found in some Fleur di Lys that were inducing stroke like symptoms.  Thankfully, itstimeslikethese, who tested the pill back in August is a thorough and conscientious tester, and was not fooled by the small amount of MDMA in the pill, no doubt in the mix to try to trick pill testers.

Very good job by the community in NYC to root these bad bombs out.  And of course, many thanks to ive done those for reading and giving us a head’s up.  Sorry it turned out that way for you, IDT.  Crying, dying, and disappearing friends?  Do us a favor and don’t double up next time unless you are sure about what you have (in a good way).

Be Safe,
