Molly is one of many street names given to the psychoactive substance known as MDMA methylenedioxy-methamphetamine. Molly is MDMA in powder form that is typically considered albeit incorrectly, in most cases to be a purer form of the drug without the presents of fillers or adulterants. While the street form of MDMA ecstasy is typically sold in pill form, test kits have shown that each pill typically only contains a small amount of MDMA, leaving the manufacturer to use additives such as cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin, or even baby aspirin in order to cheapen the manufacturing process.

Molly, on the other hand, is often thought to be pure, but it typically contains related drugs such as methylone, MDPV, mephedrone, or other substances that act as fillers and increase profitability from sales of the substance. Young adults and active club-goers are the most common users of Molly, or ecstasy.

The drug has been around since the early s, and was synthesized by Merck chemist Anton Kollisch in The drug was mainly shelved until the s when Alexander Shulgin began researching the therapeutic effects of the drug. The drug was ultimately criminalized inbut remained popular in Europe in the burgeoning underground rave scene before gaining widespread popularity amongst young club-goers in the United States. Molly, or MDMA, is known as a serotonin-norepinephrine-dopamine releasing agent and reuptake inhibitor.

While long-winded, the scientific definition merely means that the drug is responsible for releasing serotonin and dopamine, which then flood the brains pleasure centers leading to a heightened sense of physical sensitivity touch, taste, etc. In fact, it may not be Molly at all, and even when MDMA is present it could be mixed with other drugs, which have the potential to lead to dangerous drug interactions.

Another potential danger of Molly is due to the mental state that it causes. These three factors lead to the body overheating, dehydrating, and overworking itself in order to try to cool the core temperature, which le to hospital visits, and sometimes even death.

Between the risks of the drug itself, and the unknown substances it may contain, the threat of bodily harm is quite high. In addition, the release of feel-good hormones serotonin and dopamine in such high amounts depletes reserves which leaves the body unable to regulate mood and attitude in the subsequent days following use.

The long-term implications on mental health are still not fully understood, but the temporary state of depression it causes has been linked to thoughts of self-harm. Molly use is a growing trend among young adults due to its positive effects on their overall state of well being as well as the energy-inducing jolt caused by the nature of amphetamines. However, most young adults that use the substance are quite unaware of the inherent danger to their bodies, as well as their mental state.
