“Party pills - how little is known?”. 
New Zealand Family Physician. 2006 Feb;33(1):46-8.
In New Zealand there is currently a range of products generically known as Party Pills, Legal Herbal Highs, Legal Party Drugs or Social Tonics that are available for recreational use to those over 18 years of age. There are in excess of 100 of these products which can be purchased from a wide variety of sources such as the Internet,1 specialised stores or the more traditional corner dairy. Benzylpiperazine (BZP) and trifluoromethylphenyl-piperazine (TFMPP) are amphetamine-like compounds and the active ingredients of these products which are marketed as safe alternatives to illegal drugs such as 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA or Ec-stasy) and methamphetamine (MA or P). Conservative reports from industry sources estimate that 150000 ‘doses’/month of Party Pills are sold within New Zealand,2 which is an in-dication of their widespread use.
