MDMA Ecstasy causes death and overdose at Half Moon Party on Koh Phangan Island
The Half Moon Party next to Baan Tai village has once again taken place here on Koh Phangan Island, and once again there has been a serious problem.
A young Canadian girl, here on Koh Phangan Island for a vacation, attended the Half Moon Party and took some MDMA Ecstasy. She subsequently had a very bad reaction and nearly died. She fell to the ground in convulsions, eyes rolling to the back of her head, urinating and soiling herself.
An ambulance was called which took her to an awaiting ambulance boat which whisked her away to the hospital in Koh Samui. There she needed to be restrained to the bed as doctors tried desperately to put an I.V in her arm to purge her body of the evil substance which caused her body to react like that. The whole ordeal cost 41 000 baht ($1139 CDN). Another causality was a local Thai man who was at the same Half Moon Party who later died!
A serious look needs to be taken before anyone comes to this island to ingest drugs. The island is world famous for drug parties and the police here are not the most reliable sources of protection since the drugs get to the parties all the time. It’s a very profitable business and money speaks louder than the safety of people. Drug dealers have no compassion whatsoever for the safety of there clients.
You do not know where the drug comes from or what is in it. The chemical composition could be one which is poisonous to a lethal level. I am sure they are not educated chemist and do not know what they are doing or what exactly the chemical make up is. If you have the attitude of “ it can’t happen to me” be warned. Immediately once you ingest the drug there is no turning back and the last place you may be staying on your vacation is a hospital.

Like they say you are what you eat. Isn’t the Nature enough of a turn on???
Lets be careful over there.
maybe its time they considered stopping these parties no tourist does any good out of them, only corrupt thais with their corrupt police partners, only thing the tourist get is fucked … generally in more ways than one …. remember this only thing thais want is your money, these people are poor, in money and humanality, beware !
fucking thai’s selling shit E’s these people really dont care if you live or die so long as they get your money before hand, if your in thailand for a vacation do your self a favour and avoid thai’s as much as possible they are truley SCUM
its not just the thai’s selling crap… if you don’t know or trust your source … DONT BUY IT! It doesn’t take rocket science to work that out! Ask the farangs (foreign locals)… they’ll point you in the best place!
not all thais are scum the person who wrote this is a buffoon! ive had many a good time there and have never had a problem with thais which is more than i can say about most other nationalities!!!!!!!!!if you dont like it go somewhere else
There is nothing worse than the Half Moon Party, I use the word party very broadly. Do the organisers of this event care what happens to you the customer? Of course not, why? Because there are more of you on the way on the next boat with your pockets stuffed full of Thai Bhat. What does it matter if the organisers allow the dealers to sell bad chemicals or even knock out drugs to their customers. So long as you spend your money on their entry on the overpriced bar before you loose the plot or O.D who cares. Should you really be paying the same price for alchole in Thai Land as you do in Europe?! Someone got some very big pockets.
To make matters worse the organisers allow the police, uniformed and plain clothes to come onto their part to catch you in the process of buying the poor quaility overpriced merchandise. Now your holiday just got alot more expensive. What happened to the Land of smiles?!
Its a shame that these people, dealers, police and organisers have lost sight of Buddah, blinded by stertling, euro and dollar. You are only as valuable as the currency in your bank to these people.
Karma is all powerfull, retribution is constant. Like the masive attack song, Karma is a killer. Maybe thats why the organiser was recently stabbed by his lady.
It is a sad state of affairs indeed.
you tourists dont know shit! u come here and complain. why dont you stay home if u dont like it. we lived wvery happy without you idiots. and for the beer you actually should pay double price since we have to look at you drunken idiots all over the place.
so why you hite scum dont stay at home. fuck your own ugly bithces and eat your own fucking drugs. you fuckers brought all this to our county
so why you white scum dont stay at home. fuck your own ugly bitches and eat your own fucking drugs. you fuckers brought all this to our county
just to correct the content here.
first the Mitsubishi’s are from Europe as any raver will know them from home.
second none ever died from mdma. no case is know to science. if so please quote the source
Mitsubishi’s are absolutely from Europe. No one died from MDMA. It’s always a combination of drugs that leads to death. It can’t be siad enough:
Most drugs dehydrate. MDMA (xtc), Alcohol, Cannabis and the rest of the exotical list..
Dehydration then does it’s evil killing job.
Drugs like Amphetamine (speed) dehydrate even more and together with alcohol it can suck your body dry very fast.
Taking 1 Amphetamine pill on top of many buckets of alcohol can be lethal.
I u want to take drugs, enjoy party and want to keep on living and feel less beaten up next day do like this: After every bucket or glass of alcohol, take some water, yes pure H2O.
Water is the key.
by the way:
and as you should know mr raver putting any silly design on a pill would be rather easy in a counter-fit country like this. i bet you have at least one piece of non legit merchandise from here. Deisel t-shirt? levi jeans or a rolex maybe…….and people have died from taking eccies? some people just don’t agree with them! don’t get me wrong, millions of them are eaten in the uk every year and you do get the odd person who dies from it, and yes water does come into play- either to much or not enough.
I have to say it gets on my tits when people get on their high horse over drugs!! On various threads I’ve come across comments such as: ‘I have no sympathy for someone who dies from a drug overdose as they have no one to blame but themselves for taking them!’ Would they apply the same logic to someone who is fat and dies of a heart attack? A smoker who dies of cancer? A binge drinker who dies of liver failure? Or even a horse rider who falls and breaks their neck? There is no need to be riding around on a horse, people do it for pleasure, in the same way people take drugs for recreational pleasure. I’m not condoning drug abuse in anyway, but I find it annoying how quick people are to get on there high horse and condemn drug use when them themselves smoke 20 cigs a day and go out on a Friday and Saturday night and sink 20 pints. Just because it’s taxed doesn’t mean it’s not a drug and a very dangerous one at that. Not to mention the amount of people who get there heads kicked in for no reason by someone who has been indulging in a night of abuse of the socially acceptable drug alcohol!!!! Plus people are quick to group many substance together under the same banner, you can hardly relate someone who pops a pill on a weekend to someone who is physically dependent on heroin or crack, but yet many people don’t seem to see the vast difference!
Before you judge, asses your own actions and no doubt your life is full of unnecessary hazards and risk you take in the name of fun and maybe you can be a bit more tolerant towards someone who has lost their life living it the way they choose!
I don’t hear everyone clambering for a ban peanuts when somebody dies after having an allergic reaction after eating one!
What’s the difference? Some chemicals and substances react badly with some peoples bodies, that’s just the way it is!
If you do your research you will find that ecstasy is a relatively save drug and it is only prohibition that means the contents of a pill is not regulated and a mass market has been created for criminals!
