The attractive power of cartoon characters to children can present a possible element of extreme danger, especially when the animated beings are being made into ecstacy pills that look like children’s one-a-day vitamins.

Authorities in Chile recently managed to confiscate a load of at least 100 Dutch-made tablets shaped like Minions from the popular animation series Despicable Me and hidden in a children’s drawing kit. The pills had been sent from The Netherlands to the Chilean city of Vina del Mar.
