Microgram: The Oregon State Police Forensic Laboratory (Springfield, Oregon) recently received a polydrug submission consisting of numerous 0.2 gram bindles of cocaine and four tablets of suspected Ecstasy (MDMA). The exhibits were seized near a high school by the Salem Police Department. The tablets (total net mass 0.95 grams) were 9 millimeters in diameter, off-white with pink speckles, and had a spider logo on one face and two dimples on the opposite face [...]. Analysis by color testing and GC/MS, however, indicated not MDMA but rather 5-methoxy-N,N-diisopropyltryptamine (5-MeO-DIPT), sometimes referred to as 'Foxy' or 'Foxy-Methoxy' (not quantitated). This is the third time this substance has been seen by the Oregon State Police Forensic Division, the other times being at the Portland and Central Point laboratories.

[Microgram Editor's Notes: According to the analyst, the Portland submission also had a spider logo, but was a salmon/pink color and lacked the double dimple on the opposite tablet face. The Central Point submission (reported in Microgram 2001;34(11):290) was a tan powder.]
