Molly: What’s it all about?
Molly is growing in popularity by many of today's youth, but it not a new drug. It is a pure form of MDMA (methylenedioxymethamphetamine used in ecstasy) and is produced into multi-colored pills or in a powdered form.
Popular among 16 to 24 year olds, Molly was recently placed in the spotlight by pop-artists Nicki Minaj, Trinidad James, Madonna, Kanye West and Rihanna. Molly carries a one-two punch as a stimulant and a psychedelic drug which produces a much sought-after euphoric high. In a CNN report, users reported a bitter taste until the high kicked in producing an “adrenaline rush” type feeling which lasted a few hours.

Molly does not come to the party without leaving any consequences. The danger that hides behind the high and Molly's attractive pink, yellow, blue, green orange, and yellow pills, clear liquid, or powder form is the simple fact that there is no telling what other component may have been mixed with it. Molly originates in Asia, Canada and the Netherlands. Most of the time, what you see is not what you are getting. DEA spokesperson Rusty Payne has said, “Suppliers are making it look like something that is safe and easy to take, but in many cases, you’re playing Russian roulette. You have no idea the lab environment these chemicals or substances were produced in. If the person using, knew where things were produced, they might think twice.” Here are some negative effects of Molly.
