Molly’s Are Dangerous – Take a Drug Awareness Class and Learn More!

by Mike Miller January 9, 2014

A pig is a pig regardless of what you call it. Ecstasy is ecstasy even if you call it “Molly.” As a counselor for drug and alcohol awareness classes, I hear about new drug names all of the time. When a student mentioned her favorite drug was molly I was perplexed.

However, after a brief description of the drug’s effects I knew exactly what she was talking about. She claims she had no idea she had taken MDMA, otherwise known as Ecstasy, a club-drug popular at raves and other social events. As reported in www.npr.org.

Despite its cute name, it is a very dangerous drug. There have been a recent string of deaths in the Northeast as a result of Molly. Authorities believe that a purified form of Ecstasy is what killed four young people in just over a week, and sent many others to emergency rooms. Incidents involving this drug have stretched from Boston to New York and Washington, D.C.

One of the scariest things about Molly is how easy is is to get. Couple that with the fact that it is cheaper than a 6-pack of beer and disaster could be looming.

The spike in Molly use parallels the resurgence of electronic dance music at raves, clubs and festivals.

We will take a more in-depth look at Molly in our next blog. In the meantime I urge you to take a drug class to learn more about the dangers of MDMA before experimenting with such a deadly drug.
