If you enjoy the club scene, chances are you have some experience with the club drug molly. Either you have used it, seen someone use it or heard about it. It is all about the need to get that euphoric high while listening to the sounds of music beats. It’s a chance to escape the real world and for that brief moment feel good about life. But that feel good euphoria comes at a price and sometimes that price is very steep. It would be nice if the addiction or side effects weren’t there. But everything in life has a price.
What Is Molly?
The most common question asked by parents: what is molly drug?”. Let’s answer this question in simple terms. Molly is the synthetic drug MDMA (a white powder) which is scientifically known as 3,4-methylenedioxy-N-methylamphetamine. MDMA is more commonly known as ecstasy or ecstacy depending upon which part of the country you are from. Yes that drug that everyone raves about, sing songs about and die for. The difference between molly and ecstasy is the content in the drug. Molly is supposed to be pure 100% MDMA while ecstasy has additional synthetic drugs mixed with the MDMA.
Everyone assumes that if you take a pure version of a drug, then it can’t harm you. That is the farthest thing from the truth. As an example, pure forms of caffeine are actually toxic to the human body. Unfortunately molly is just as dangerous. Molly is almost never sold as a pure form of MDMA. Molly typically contains dangerous synthetic drugs, including the same ingredients found in the drug called bath salts. Also add other drugs such as methamphetamine, krokodil (Desomorphine), heroin, ketamine, PCP , K2 drug (synthetic marijuana) and amphetamines to the mix. Drug dealers are no longer just drug providers but have also become chemists. They attempt to provide both the high euphoria and the addiction for more.
Molly is known as a hallucinogen and a stimulant to your body. But the side effects with use are harmful. They include an increased heart rate, chest pains, heavy sweating, teeth clenching, chills or sharp increases in body temperature. These temperature changes can lead to organ failure and death. Molly users often are dehydrated which lead to overheating, convulsing and seizing. Add depression, paranoia, anxiety and confusion to the list as well. Since the synthetic drugs aren’t well-studied, it is assumed that based on the side effects, long-term brain damage can result with extensive use. Also add addiction which can completely alter your life.
Is the euphoria worth the price?
