The National Security Minister is warning about the proliferation of the drug 'Ecstasy' in this country.

Minister Stuart Young said recent raids yielded at least 1,600 of the pills.

The minister at the time could not say where they were seized and who is the popular target market for the drug.

But the drug commonly called ‘Molly’ is used mostly by party goers and the minister said due to Carnival, they've been able to pick up a lot of the pills. 

Minister Young said the United Nations has been working with the state on clamping down on this drug and has provided this country with testing machines.
