Molly: Drug of Choice for Professionals

MDMA, or “Molly,” is known as a club drug used amongst young people, it is now becoming the drug of choice for professionals in New York City. MDMA promotes feelings of euphoria, warmth and diminished anxiety. It is also the main ingredient in the other club drug, ecstasy.  Because it is thought of as a “pure” drug, containing nothing besides 3, 4-methylenedioxy-N-methylamphetamine, many believe it is safer and healthier.

Doctors are warning of the serious side effects the drug can produce, including dehydration, anxiety, insomnia, fever and loss of appetite. Many are blaming the drug’s recent spike in popularity on the hip hop culture.  When the drug first came out, medical officials warn that MDMA could lead to Parkinson’s disease, a lifetime of depression and “holes” in the brain. But now, doctors have disproven those claims. The new concern is that many powders sold as Molly don’t actually contain any MDMA.
