Saskatchewan RCMP are warning residents to stay away from the street
drug ecstasy following several deaths associated with the drug in
neighbouring provinces.

"Illegal drugs are conveyed across provincial and international
borders and the public needs to be aware of the inherent dangers of
ecstasy and other illegal drugs," the force says in a Friday news release.

The B.C. Coroners Service has found the toxic compound
paramethoxymetamphetamine (PMMA) in the victims of at least five
people who died after taking ecstasy in the last six months, and other
deaths are under investigation. Alberta has also seen ecstasy-related
deaths in recent months.

No such deaths have yet been reported in Saskatchewan, RCMP say.

The police are encouraging parents to talk to their kids about the
dangers of using ecstasy and other drugs, and to visit the B.C. RCMP's
drug awareness website for helpful tips.
