The RCMP are warning students to take extra precautions during end of school year celebrations.
More parties means more potential for drug use, and the RCMP say what people may be buying as ecstasy could also contain methamphetamine.
Sgt. MaryAnn MacNeil tells CHSJ News, drug seizures of meth in the province are on the rise, and in a number of cases what people are buying as ecstasy is in fact primarily meth.
MacNeil says both ecstasy and meth are dangerous, but meth is extremely addictive.
MacNeil says they are taking a multi-prong approach to the issue by trying to raise awarness, and cracking down on people who sell the precursor ingredients to these synthetic drugs.
