Several UCD students have been hospitalised after taking a cocktail of amphetamines and LSD, called scuzz, at an end of exams party.
Following the incident, UCD Students’ Union (UCDSU) were approached by An Garda Siochana to issue a safety warning to its members warning that a tainted cocktail of drugs was in circulation and that they should exercise caution.
The statement read: “Several students have been taken into hospital last night after taking a bad cocktail of drugs that may have included amphetamines and LSD.
“The Gardai are worried that fatalities may occur if this batch is not taken out of circulation.”
Furthermore, the Irish Times are reporting that this represents the sixth such incident this week that Gardai have had to deal with, as a veterinary student was arrested in the Grafton Street area and taken to hospital for displaying extreme behaviour.
The nature of the incidents and their apparent connection has led to an investigation being launched into the source of the drugs.
Students who may have any information in relation to the incident have been appealed to contacted the drug unit on 01 6669200, or contact UCDSU.
