Press Release – Meet “MOLLY” The Real Story Behind MDMA and Ecstasy

Posted By Winchester Police on September 9th, 2013

September 9, 2013 – Winchester

The Winchester Police Department and Winchester Coalition for a Safer Community feels it necessary to make residents aware of the dangerousness of the drug “Molly”.  Several recent incidents of “Molly” usage have been reported in surrounding cities and towns.  Winchester is not immune to similar problems but through communication and education we can hopefully reduce the risk of “Molly” usage in the community.  It is important for parents to understand how dangerous this drug is and to be vigilant in discussing these issues with their children.  Molly is not a new drug but as recent news stories have reported, is becoming more popular.

The following information has been excerpted from a September 4, 2013 press release from the Reading Coalition Against Substance Abuse.

The term “molly”, which is short for molecule, refers to the more potent form of MDMA or Ecstasy. According to the National Institute of Drug Abuse, “Ecstasy” and “Molly” are slang terms for MDMA, short for 3, 4 methylenedioxymethamphetamine. Other slang terms that are used include “E,” “XTC,” “X,” “Adam,” “hug,” “beans,” “clarity,” “lover’s speed,” and “love drug.”

The National Institute of Drug Abuse describes how MDMA impacts the body below:
-  For most people, a “hit” of MDMA lasts for 3 to 6 hours. Once the pill is swallowed, it takes only about 15 minutes for MDMA to enter the bloodstream and reach the brain. About 45 minutes later, the person experiences MDMA’s “high.” That’s when the drug is at its peak.
-  People who use MDMA might feel very alert, or “hyper,” at first. Some lose a sense of time and experience other changes in perception, such as an enhanced sense of touch. Others experience negative effects right away. They may become anxious and agitated. Sweating or chills may occur, and people may feel faint or dizzy.
- MDMA can also cause muscle tension, nausea, blurred vision, and increased heart rate and blood pressure. Forceful clenching of the teeth can occur, and individuals at clubs have been known to chew on pacifiers to relieve some of the tension.
- Even if a person takes only one pill, the side effects of MDMA—including feelings of sadness, anxiety, depression, and memory difficulties—can last for several days to a week (or longer in people who use MDMA regularly).
- MDMA was involved in 10,176 emergency department visits in the U.S. in 2011.
