Considering Reasons, Effects and Solutions

Molly, which is also known as ecstasy or club drug, is becoming an increasingly popular drug of choice among youth. It is easily found in suburbs and in college campuses and can have extremely dangerous effects on users. In this article, we will mainly talk about the growing dangers of Molly to make you aware of the disastrous effects that this drug can have both on your body and life.

What is Molly?

According to the DEA, both a psychedelic and a stimulant MDMA or Molly is an illegal drug that is consumed to produce feelings of rapture. Many consumers claim that they feel an overpowering sense of compassion and energy. While its real name is 3, 4 methylenedioxymethamphetamine, it is mostly taken in pill or capsule form and usually lasts from 3 to 6 hours.

Reasons Responsible for the Increased Usage of Molly

The drug MDMA is mostly consumed by club goers and entertainers, who are in search of euphoria. This is one reason responsible for steady increased usage of the drug among youth. However, although this club drug has been around for quite some time, it has shown a surge in popularity just recently. The major reason considered for the sudden rise in popularity of this drug is its recent mention in popular song lyrics. “She gone off that Molly,” rapped Kanye West on his newest single “Mercy”. Posters featuring “Have You Seen Molly?” littered music festivals all over. Even pop icon Madonna produced controversy at Miami’s Ultra festival this year, captivating the stage and announcing “Who here has seen Molly?” All this has given rise to a dangerous trend in youth and teen use of this drug. It has been reported that a large number of people visited hospitals in the present year to get treated for the side-effects of Molly.

According to a report presented by Drug Enforcement Administration, a large drug trafficking ring consisting of a group of 20 men and women within age 27 to 52 were arrested for distributing more than 100 kg of Molly in New York, Florida, California, Texas, Virginia and other states. Also, the Drug Abuse Warning Network has found out that from 2004 to 2009, there was a 123% increase in the number of emergency room visits involving MDMA taken alone or in combination with pharmaceuticals, alcohol or both.

Catastrophic Effects of Molly on the Abuser

The club drug is seen to have really dangerous and sometimes fatal consequences on the abuser. While it is known to cause distortions of time and memory loss, it is also a major cause for strong muscle tension and aggression, and can also lead to high blood pressure and heart rate, dizziness and reduced vision. MDMA can also result to severe anxiety and depression that can last for over a week even by using just one pill. Moreover, these pills taken in combination with any other drug have the possibility of causing long-term sickness and even death.

Molly is considered to be extremely dangerous as it affects the working of our brain severely. The longer you consume this drug, more severe side-effects you are likely to encounter. Dehydration, anxieties, vomiting and heart palpitations are some of its common side-effects. However, overdose of the drug can also lead to faintness, seizures and loss of consciousness.
