PEP pills study aborted

Party pill study aborted over 'severe adverse events' from the New Zealand Herald.

I thought this may be of interest to some of you, as there has been a lot of discussion about the safety of legal pills. A quote from the introduction says -
A Government-funded study into the effects of BZP had to be aborted because of the toll it was taking on participants in the trial. The subsequent report, leaked to the Herald on Sunday, says BZP - the main ingredient in party pills - has severe negative effects, especially if it's taken with alcohol. After consulting the National Ethics Committee, scientists ended the trial because participants began to suffer nausea, dizziness and hallucinations.

    It seems just plain unethical to test with alcohol, that might be common amoung users, but its really not recommended and is known to cause side effects.
