Molly Madness

Testing MDMA. Nicknamed the love drug, Molly is powdered MDMA that causes the brain to flood with serotonin.  Despite the nickname, it is not necessarily a good substance considering that MDMA-related ER visits have doubled nationally since 2004.

Molly, a powdered form of the drug MDMA, is exploding in popularity across the United States. Formerly marketed in pill form as Ecstasy, Molly is a total rebrand. Marketed as purer, cleaner and “without the additives,” this powder has become the most fashionable new drug for young people. But as the consumer demand for Molly has exploded, the production of pure MDMA has struggled to keep up with supply. As a result new, dangerous chemicals are finding their way into the market.
