The drug known as 'Molly' has swept through both the party scene and the headlines after four deaths and numerous hospitalizations on the East Coast. Trace looks at what exactly this drug is, how it works, and the danger it poses.
A study relates neural damage provoked by ecstasy with ambient temperature at which it is consumed
"There exists a direct relationship between the consumption of MDMA, or Ecstasy, at a high ambient temperature and an increase in the neural damage which this drug provokes. This was the conclusion of the research carried out by Beatriz Goñi at the School of Pharmacy of the University of Navarra."
'Molly' Responsible for Concert Deaths, Hyperthermia Common with Drug
"A purer form of ecstasy, commonly known as molly (MDMA), also short for molecule, has allegedly killed two people at a New York City dance festival Labor Day weekend and caused the event to end early."
Woman Took 'Six Hits of Molly' Before Collapsing at Electric Zoo
"The identities of the two people who died of drug overdoses at this weekend's Electric Zoo music festival in New York City have been released. The deaths of Olivia Rotondo, 20, and Jeffrey Russ, 23, prompted festival organizers to cancel the final day of the event. According to The New York Post, Rotondo told an EMS worker, ""I just took six hits of Molly,'' a potent form of MDMA before having a seizure and dying."
Fact Check: How Dangerous Is Molly, the New 'It' Drug?
"Molly is basically the same as ecstasy. They're both incarnations of the club drug MDMA, which gives you that "love everyone around you" feeling and pairs well with hypnotic, bass-driven music."
What's up with 'Molly'? Club drug has students outraged
"The club drug "Molly" is creating waves of trouble for young concertgoers. Some students fear club drugs will continue to be associated with the electronic dance music culture."
What is Molly? Everything you need to know about the party drug
"The third day of New York City's Electric Zoo music festival was canceled by the mayor's office this weekend, following the tragic deaths of two twenty-something revelers."
Residual Neurocognitive Features of Long-Term Ecstasy Users With Minimal Exposure to Other Drugs
"In field studies assessing cognitive function in illicit ecstasy users, there are several frequent confounding factors that might plausibly bias the findings toward an overestimate of ecstasy-induced neurocognitive toxicity. We designed an investigation seeking to minimize these possible sources of bias."
Why MDMA is destroying EDM
"My time at Perry's Stage during Lollapalooza 2011 opened my eyes to the new culture of electronic dance music. Just a few years earlier, Perry's was a small, barely lifted stage situated within the wooded area of Grant Park. By August 2011, a new form of dubstep was taking over American dance music, and with the influx of these blistering beats stormed an entirely new demographic of EDM fanatic."

MDMA is tan. Also the highest quality MDMA you can get is 84%. The reason for this isn't because it is always cut, but to made crystalline MDMA you have to use a binder. The binder is not harmful, and taking the purest form of MDMA is relatively safe so long as you don't do it often or in to high or a quantity. You should wait at least 5 weeks before you take it again so you serotonin levels are replenish. Also if you're gonna take it you should get a test kit online. They're cheap and they could save your life. Never get pressed pill because you have no idea what could be in there. When you buy MDMA it should look like tan chunks of crystal, not white powder, and definitely not a fucking red pill.
I've been using MDMA once or twice a month for the past year, using around 10 different pills. I have only experienced fatigue after staying up till 6 in the morning as you can't sleep, I have never felt depressed or been sick etc. MDMA in my opinion is fine as long as you're safe and sensible with the ammount.
I'd like to take MDMA in it's pure form without adulterants, but only once. The problem is molly, X, etc. are all mixed with other things that cause it to be so life threatening. MDMA in it's pure form shows some signs of neurotoxicity but these studies are biased both for and against the drug. From accounts of people taking the pure substance, it's not a 'druggy' feeling, rather an overwhelming feeling of sobriety to the point of euphoria. In essence it makes people love anyone they see and want happiness for others.
Don't mix with a lot of weed or a lot of alcohol at the same time is my only advice. One joint before on your comeup, one joint on your comedown so you don't cat for more and almost never hit bong. The high you get from mixing can be something completely psychedelic although it could just be the way it affects me and I've also taken acid and apparently it can bring back old highs.
Molly is not ecstasy.....ecstacy is the hardpress pill form of mdma and molly is in a capsule just for anyone that believes this video never take ecstasy because its 100000% of the time cut it has to be to be pressed into a pill you have a better chance of taking mdma that's not cut if you get gel capsules or straight powder but it's a game of russian roulette
Every thing he said is wrong except the part were he about over drinking water. plus who the Fuk cuts md it’s cheap as bought pure 95% fr 10g like £60 to £70. U make back that doe in no time
At least look for decent and credible sources
Molly, HDMA, does not bind to itself. So if you are told you are getting pure Molly in a pressed pill form... You're being lied to. It's mixed with SOMETHING to create that form. The somethings it's mixed with can cause many of the side effects mentioned. MDMA definately drains your serotonin and causes a feeling of let down or sadness but yeah... Weigh out the benefits and intention when n you take it with the side effects and be prepared. Same as big pharma/fda approved drugs.
I remember the first time I did MDMA the come down was rough. Couldn't eat shit and thing tasted different. Jaws hurt too. But the other time I've taken it it was a lot better high and barely any come down.
From what I've heard from someone who definitely isn't me, Pure MDMA can be safe to use in moderate doses and with proper OTC supplements. But don't over do it, someone who definitely isn't me knows a few people that took MDMA way too often for a few years in a row and now it's like their brain is a giant bowl of mashed potatoes. Someone who definitely isn't me advises that if you've never taken it before, then do some research into what supplements you should take with it and BUY A TESTER KIT ON AMAZON to make sure your "MDMA" isn't actually meth. Be safe kids.
*Someone who definitely isn't me has done pure MDMA with supplements a number of times on many weekends and has been able to function normally at a job in the science/engineering field and maintain a healthy lifestyle over the past 10 years. Moderation and preparation are key.
Molly legitimately depletes all of your serotonin which is why you are depressed and fatigued in days after rolling, pls be careful as overuse can lead to severe depression for prolonged periods of time
Be careful where and who you get your molly from. I love the drug, but one time I'm pretty sure it was laced with speed because my heart was pounding for 14 hours straight. The main danger of molly is it not actually being molly because it's an illegal drug and you mainly acquire it from dealers. For any drug that is illegal, you have to make sure you get it from someone you trust, that's common sense.
I love all the Dealers Commenting here to keep their Business going. All these drugs should be decriminalised (not just legalised) and then you would get adulterations and Organised Crime (and the CIA) out of the picture (and the prices way down).
One older dude who took everything, and who's favourite motto was "Higher doses more often!" told me (after I recounted by terrible "mull cake" experience) that "nothing's worse than" marijuana poisoning. (I'd smoked a fair bit over the years, but that mull cake put me in the emergency ward feeling like I was going insane, like someone had their finger on the CD fast forward button of my brain so that my stream of consciousness had all these little short rapid gaps in it, and whatever room I was in felt like the Hitchcock movie Vertigo. Massive Vit. C powder fixed it, except for the nightmares and flashbacks for a week or so afterward. : ?
(He supplied and minded me for a Salvia divinorum trip which was fantastic, and cured my severe depression for several weeks afterward -- from that one dose/trip.) The Salvia journey was a few years after the mull cake torture. (The other friend who gave me that told me his younger brother boiled up a whole plant with butter and concentrated that into those tasty cupcakes.)
Ive been around this scene for a long time, and i have done my very fair share of MDMA, and in my personal opinion as long as you take precautions to reduce possible harm like having water on hand while high, eating good enough meals that day, and not over doing it on dosage, you can have a really great, and safe night. Nothing is good for you if you treat your body badly by not eating and staying hydrated.
You didn't even describe what the lethal or threshold doses are. You didn't describe how to test it for purity. No mention of reagents. You just basically said to just not do it. How is this harm reduction? Do you think really you would convince a teenager to not do drugs based on watching this video? You actually did the opposite by telling them how dangerous it is.
Phase 3 Trials: FDA Grants Breakthrough Therapy Designation for MDMA-Assisted Psychotherapy for PTSD, Agrees on Special Protocol Assessment
Mdma is not dangerous. Unregulated black market mdma is dangerous. Like most of the party drugs, Its dangerous because its manufacture and sale are regulated by the suppliers. The war on drugs (and the quack science behind it) the majority of party drugs into a libertarian or Pure capitalist economy. buyer beware market place. No protections for the buyer. Scientific Research stifled. The only difference between a medicine and a poison is the dose.
Psychology Addiction research is equivalent to quackery. Bigotry, assumptions, and fear mongering with a gloss of scientific sounding language to give it respectability. For example: Psychologists never noticed that Cannabis is a medicine? Often, behind the ‘addiction’ is a medical condition that the cannabis is treating. Remove the cannabis and the condition returns. Patients know this. Psychs just re-interpret or ignore everything test subjects/patients say.
Btw, the scientific peer review system broken, corrupted. This has allowed some fields of study (such as psychology) to focus more on proving their own assumptions rather than studying reality. The hypotheses they test are not based on reality. Climate Science is real. Addiction ‘science’ is full on quackery. IMO The War on Drugs is actually a War on Science and intended to create a permanent underclass.
How can we expect folks to believe in real science (like climate change), if the government and educators supports quackery from NIDA, Addiction Psychology and even medicine.
I was about to write a very angry comment siting numerous studies stating that MDMA does have a number of psychological health treatment properties when you said things like "medical officials have stated it doesn't", as I have read numerous studies showing it's beneficial effects, but then I saw that this is a relatively old video and maybe you guys didn't search for any studies relating to its numerous beneficial uses (obviously in much more moderate dosages)
Or did you just leave those out deliberately?
This is some media propaganda. If if was cut with either LSD or methamphetamine, it would increase MDMA's hallucinogenic or stimulant effects. It is mostly shit on the streets these days. Either methylone, or bath salts, or an analogue, or some new research chemical or poison of some sort. The old skool phrase " Rave to the Grave" is more appropriate now than ever.
I took a 300mg pill of MDMA that i split in half with my cousin two days in a row. Eyes startet to twitch. Crazy summing in your whole body. And a crap load of energy. Overall i felt very happy and music was better than ever.
I'm a BIG music lover and this drug took it to a whole new level. But i dont want to overdo it because it might loose it's so called ''magic'' and you'll start to feel like hell. Right now i'm still feeling amazed over it and haven't come across any negative side effects yet.
Right now im thinking to my self that an EDM music festival would be a once in a lifetime experience with this drug.
I've got to try that!! :D
