Molly: The Drug That’s Too Good to Quit

by Rachel Baker on September 8, 2013

The has an interesting article about the drug use of a dangerous drug and its users willingness to continue using even though there’s been recent deaths from bad batches.

A comparison of the 2012 and 2013 Global Drug Surveys, conducted by an independent drug-use data agency, shows just how popular Molly has become. In 2012, 26.5 percent of U.S. respondents had tried MDMA in the last 12 months. In 2013, the number jumped to 60.9 percent. (Over the same period, those who reported having tried cannabis rose from 69.3 percent to 88.4 percent.) A report by the Drug Abuse Warning Network shows that MDMA-related emergency visits have doubled since 2004. According to the World Drug Report, somewhere between 10 to 25 million people have tried the drug in one form or another.

Chemically speaking, Molly is an amphetamine with a twist of phenethylamine (a hallucinogen). Flooding your brain with dopamine and serotonin, it not only heightens feelings of euphoria, but empathy and love as well.
