A DANGEROUS new Ecstasy tablet with a windmill emblem has driven people to attempt suicide and other erratic behaviour, cops have warned.
Going by the innocent-sounding name Milly’s, the pink party pill are being handed out free of charge to human guinea pigs by dealers before going on ‘general sale’.

Drug squad detectives have said these dangerous ‘trials’ are happening in Cornwall and the mind-bending chemicals have reportedly resulted in people self harming and thinking of taking their own lives.
The dealers and the chemists behind them who concoct the drug in secret laboratories are seeing what effect taking Milly’s has on the vulnerable people.
There are fears it could even be given as ‘a present’ to primary school-age children to get them hooked and they swallow it, thinking it looks like a sweet.
HUMAN GUINEA PIGS
Devon and Cornwall Police have gone on to social media because it’s the preferred method of ‘chat’ among youngsters.
On Facebook they appealed “Please be aware of an ecstasy tablet, known as Milly’s.
“These are bright pink in colour, in a hexagonal shape and with an embossed windmill blade.
“The tablets are in circulation in the Callington-Liskeard area as well as other areas of Cornwall.
“They are currently being supplied free of charge to vulnerable people to see how they affect people prior to retail.
