Drug-dealer not in the pink now!

AMONG the substances seized by police from a Tenerife man, dealing in narcotics, was a designer drug called Tubici, or Pink Cocaine.

Although this powder is becoming extremely popular in Spain and across Europe, authorities in Tenerife believe it is the first time the drug has surfaced on the island.

A 32-year-old man has been charged by the National Police with drug-trafficking, as well as crimes against public health,

He was caught in Puerto de la Cruz when officers stopped his car and used a special drug-catching device to catch him out.

They were drawn to a box, hidden in the car boot, which contained 1.5gms of MDMA, 21 ecstasy pills, 21.32gms of cocaine and 16.70gms of pink cocaine.

National Police on the mainland discovered the latter two years ago when it appeared in two drug laboratories, being dismantled by officers in Madrid.

The side-effects of pink cocaine include agitation, hallucinations and difficulty in movements, in addition to depression, insomnia, anxiety, and irregular heartbeats, which can result in heart attacks.

A small dose can be the start of many problems because it is a highly-addictive drug, costing around 60 euros for a minimum dose.
