Brit tourists warned over killer pink cocaine sold by mini cartels in Spain

Brits are being told to be wary of a killer drug dubbed pink cocaine that is being sold by "mini cartels" in Spain.

Spanish police alerted people to the brightly coloured drug which is being distributed to unsuspecting revellers in party hotspots Majorca and Ibiza.

The drug, which can reportedly smell of strawberry, is also known as 2C, Rosada or Eros. A Spanish drugs cop labelled the substance "tremendously dangerous".

Hermelo Molero, a top anti-drug cop, said the pink substance is a cocktail of cheap drugs that can sometimes not even include cocaine, with Brit holidaymakers warned of the potential effects.

Claudio Vidal, director of drug-monitoring service Energy Control, told The Sun hallucinogens can also be mixed in with the rest of the cocktail.

Claudio, director of drug-monitoring service Energy Control, explained the effects of the drugs could be devastating for those with it in their system.

The drugs expert said: "We can find it in any part of the country- almost always it is related to the areas of entertainment and parties.

"The more entertaining a place and full of young people, the more possible it is to find this product. Of course, areas like Marbella, Ibiza are the perfect places to find these substances."

Hermelo has since stated the "dangerous" concoction uses an "excessive amount of ketamine" and in some instances may lead to "problematic" effects.

Hermelo added: "In all this, we need to add the effects of LSD. It is a product that has always been very problematic because you can never know the amount that is going to affect your body."

The Guardia Civil said the mini cartel peddling the drugs is mainly British origin and of a "very violent nature", armed with a sub machine gun.
