The Uprise of Molly

Written by Shane Kratz

What is Molly?

Molly is NOT the same as ecstasy. Ecstasy can contain other psychogenic substances, whereas molly is pure MDMA.

Information about MDMA

Molly is pure MDMA and usually comes in powder or crystalline form.

Molly makes one feel very good because it literally floods a persons brain with dopamine and serotonin.

MDMA was first synthesized by Anton Kollisch when he was trying to make a substance that could stop abnormal bleeding and trying to go around a patent that was for a similar drug owned by Bayer.

Chronic users have reported being extremely depressed after periods of prolong use.

Two of the biggest risks of MDMA is dehydration and overhydration. Overhydration is when you drink too much water and it floods your brain.

Due to the United Nations, "Convention on Psychotropic Substances", MDMA is universally illegal around the world.

The 2010 U.N World Drug report estimated around 10 to 25 million people use molly at least once a year.

Molly has a wide variety of side effects, thought they vary depending on the person including hallucination, increased heart rate, organ failure, coma and death.
