‘Molly’ is Popular, Yet Deadly
Molly is the code name for the drug MDMA, the main ingredient in Ecstasy. The DEA said its purity is almost a myth because it comes in powder form and can easily be mixed with other drugs.
Be on the lookout for the term “Molly’. It is the name for a popular recreational drug in today’s club setting.
It is glorified by high-profile singers. Miley Cyrus references it in her tune ‘We Can’t Stop,’ in the lyrics ‘We like to party, dancing with Molly….’
Madonna asked at her recent concert, ‘How many of you’ve seen Molly?’ (Even though as questioned of it, Madonna denied she was referring to the drug and instead was talking about an actual person).
Short for molecule, Molly includes the most recent type of Ecstasy, the recreational drug. It produces a euphoric feeling and is extremely popular at raves, techno clubs, and additional concert-type of events. The majority of users foolishly think it’s non-addictive, safe and does not have any side effects.
However, that isn’t true. It is being connected with a string of overdoses, even fatalities.
Recently, a dance music festival within NY City ended early following the fatalities of two young adults, 20-year-old Olivia Rotondo and 23-year-old Jeffery Russ.
Molly makes the body temperature skyrocket to 105° to 106° and will make people more susceptible to heat stroke.
The massive ‘Electric Zoo Music Festival’ that lasts for multiple days was closed down following concert organizers learning the victims died after consuming Molly.
The latest government statistics in regard to Molly date back to the year 2009, and Molly’s popularity has boomed since then. However, even 4 years ago, government information claimed almost 23,000 ER visits because of overdoses of Molly, a 123% rise from the year 2005.
In Boston, one week earlier, one 19-year-old youth died of a suspected Molly overdose after a concert. A man died in June and many more were treated for Molly overdoses at a Washington state music festival.
