The synthetic drug 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) has an effect on mood and perception (awareness of surrounding objects and conditions). Its chemical structure is comparable to that of stimulants and hallucinogens, and it generates feelings of increased energy, pleasure, emotional warmth, and altered sensory and temporal perception.
MDMA was first popular in nightclubs and at all-night dance parties (“raves”), but the chemical now affects a wider range of people who call the drug Ecstasy or Molly.
How do people utilize MDMA?
MDMA is commonly taken as a pill or tablet, although some users swallow it in liquid form or inhale the powder. Molly (slang for “molecular”) is a common nickname for the purportedly “pure” crystalline powder form of MDMA that is sometimes sold in capsules. People who purchase Molly powder or capsules, on the other hand, usually end up with synthetic cathinone (“bath salts”) instead.
