Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

'Dangerous Orange Pill' Warning in Australia

'Dangerous orange pill' prompts Australia festival warning
2 hours ago
Music festival-goers across Australia have been warned about a "dangerous orange pill", after a young man died of a suspected drug overdose.
Joshua Tam, 22, became ill at the Lost Paradise festival in New South Wales (NSW) on Saturday. He died in hospital.

Police said attendees had made "sophisticated" attempts to carry drugs, such as stuffing them inside a barbecued chicken and jars of Vegemite.

Four people have died at music festivals in NSW since September.

In October, the state introduced laws that will jail people for up to 25 years if they supply a drug that kills someone.

The exact cause of Mr Tam's death is not yet known. He and two people who fell ill but survived had taken an "unknown substance", police said.

Following the incident, organisers of Falls Festival - a major event taking place in four states - issued a warning about a "dangerous orange pill that is currently in circulation across Australia".
