The party pills masquerade as herbal pills in the market, but in reality they are miles apart from any semblance of a herb. The active ingredient in the pills, BZP, initially manufactured as a de-worming medication for cattle, was discontinued due to the adverse reactions. Ross Boswell has warned that, untill the pill is proved safe, it would be best if people avoided use of the pill.
