Ecstasy, Designer Drugs and Heroin

 

Have you guys heard about all these deaths recently related to the one drug, Molly?

 

 No. What are you talking about?

 

All these kids died from taking a form of MDMA called Molly.
Isn’t that the same things as ecstasy? Or, is that another designer drug. I can’t keep up with them all.

I think so but I’m not really sure….

To give you the 411, both Molly and ecstasy are forms of the drug MDMA.  However, Ecstasy is a pill while Molly is the powdered form of MDMA, often taken in a capsule, falsely making many people think it is the “purer” and more potent form.

And yes, they are popular “designer” drugs. Here, you will mostly be learning about MDMA, but sub posts on some other designer drugs are included as well. In addition, you will find a sub-post on heroin because it is one of the most addictive drugs and therefore most dangerous.
