Abbotsford teen dies after taking ecstasy

R.I.P

Quote:
Tragedy has hit an Abbotsford family just a few days before Christmas.

Seventeen-year-old Cheryl McCormack died on Dec. 22 after taking ecstasy. She and three other teenage girls were at a sleepover a few nights earlier, where all four friends took an ecstasy pill to lose or manage their weight, said Abbotsford police.

At around 3 a.m., however, McCormack became unresponsive and was taken to the hospital, where she remained in critical condition. She died just three days before Christmas.

“How can anybody be prepared to deal with this when you’ve got Christmas decorations up and lights throughout the city?” said Abbotsford police spokesperson, Const. Ian MacDonald. “This young girl thought [ecstasy] was the gateway to weight management, and unfortunately sacrificed her life.”

MacDonald said the other three girls were fine, even though they all took the same pill. Investigators are still waiting for tox screen results to determine the exact cause of McCormack’s death.

“I think what’s important to remember is ecstasy or any illicit drug is not manufactured in a pharmaceutical plant,” MacDonald said. “There is no quality control, there is no guarantee that what you think you’re ingesting is in fact what you’re ingesting. It’s quite possible the drug could have been in varying amounts.”

MacDonald also said this is not the first time the four girls took ecstasy in order to lose weight, though police are still trying to find out where they got the drug. He believes there may be more teens out there doing the same thing.

The family have requested privacy, but have indicated that they want the story of Cheryl’s tragic death to be told accurately.

“The family, despite obviously struggling and still coming to terms with this, has been extremely courageous,” said MacDonald. “They want to warn parents like themselves and teens like their daughter from having the same fate befall them.”

Abbotsford Police Department is seeking to identify the supplier and source of the ecstasy. Anyone with information should call APD at 604-859-5225 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

was watching it on cbcnews and they were making it seem like ecstasy isn't a serious, illegal, drug

they made it seem normal that these girls would be popping e, a recreational drug, to lose weight


i was more by the reporting than the story

Now was it pure happenstance that she died after taking the pill or did she actually die from it? Considering the tox screen hasn't come back yet, it's sorta silly to assume what caused her to pass away, especially if none of the other girls reported any unusual side effects (apart from the usual ones, I suppose lol).

Not trying to diminish her death, keep in mind. I had a friend who was hard into E and actually OD'ed a couple times a few years back. Not good...

E can be deadly if you have any kind of heart or kidney dysfunctions... do drugs but do them wisely RIP... raise drug awareness to teens and legalize/educate them.

I was hanging out at a friends house and his little brother who is still in highschool was joking about trying E with his friends. My friend delivered a haymaker to his little brother and started yelling at him. I don't agree with hitting a family member but I've never had a younger sibling so it may be different. The little brother isn't the rebellious type and is a good kid. My friend isn't anti-drug himself and we have all had our share of experiences in highschool.

It's scary how highschooler's are now a day. Smoking weed and drinking aren't breaking news but to think they're poppin' E like it's nothing, that's scary. I've seen a friend overdose after taking E and start foaming out her mouth and that was messed up.



before tldr : rip to the girl.

E is MDMA mixed with speed (meth). it's the meth that gets you super pumped up and wanting to dance. 100% pure MDMA is mellow and just makes you feel euphoric. That shit used to be a clinical drug for depression in some countries.

I hated E when I took it the one time. Probably due to the amphetamines... It was fun at first, but the eurphoria wore off after the party, then I just felt like I was tweaking. Never bothered with it or any drugs besides weed and alcohol after that.

meth is fucking methamphetamine aka crystal meth.

speed is amphetamines, the most commonly thing cut into ecstasy.

MDMA is methylenedioxymethamphetamine (true ecstasy) they're different things, of the same family though.

no one would EVER cut ecstasy with meth cuz meth is so much more expensive and potent. well maybe the nicest drug dealer in the entire universe who's into losing money lol.
Wow, meth is expensive now? The shit you make with batteries and cough medicine? Shit I thought the whole point was that it was cheap as hell.
