Former Brown University student, Jeffrey Martin, may have been making DMT not meth when he was arrested on January 19, according to reports by the Providence Journal Bulletin. An investigation of strong chemical odors led Providence police to Martin’s apartment where they found him cooking chemicals in a frying pan; chemicals that police believe would produce DMT, a hallucinogenic drug. Martin told police that he learned how to make narcotics from his classes at Brown. Police are also investigating whether or not the chemicals in Brown’s apartment were obtained from the university.
In addition to the drug lab charges, Martin was also found to be in possession of marijuana and a vial of methamphetamine. Members of the Drug Enforcement Administration will make a final determination of the kind of drug lab that Martin was operating.
Martin was arraigned and released on his own recognizance.
