Police in the UK have issued a warning against a batch of potentially harmful ‘Snapchat’ shaped pills, after two young women were hospitalised in West Yorkshire over the weekend. The small rectangular pills are said to bear the logo of the infamous social media app, Snapchat.
Alarmingly, those hospitalised where schoolchildren aged 12 and 13, who are now in a stable condition. A 13-year old boy has been arrested on drug-related offences as a result.
West Yorkshire Police have released the following statement:
We want to remind the public about the dangers of drugs. Drugs are often given catchy names to appeal to young people. We had an incident involving 2 females in hospital after taking ‘Snapchat pills‘. Any person offered drugs refuse & report via 101 or crime stoppers 0800555111.

Make sure you stay safe out there guys and if you can, test your pills…or better yet, don’t take them at all.
