LC-MS/MS Analysis of MDMA in Ecstasy Tablets in Morocco

Ecstasy is a street name originally designated for 3,4-methylenedioxymethylamphetamine (MDMA). It is commonly used at rave parties for its psychedelic and stimulant effects that may last between 4 and 6 h. This drug is generally sold in the form of tablets with good appearance, with great variety of colors, shapes, and sizes and printed with various types of pictures and logos. Tablets sold as ecstasy primarily contain MDMA, although others amphetamine type stimulants (ATS) such as methylenedioxyamphetamine (MDA), methylenedioxyethamphetamine (MDEA) are present. In addition, other psychoactive compounds may be present such as cocaine, heroin, caffeine, lidocaine and others. Indeed, tablets with similar physical appearances may have different chemical compositions and the contents of MDMA in ecstasy tablets vary from 0 to 200.00 mg per tablet.
