‘Molly’ Can Be A Killer

Parents, beware: ‘Molly’ is not your child’s new best friend.  While the drug has a pretty-sounding name, the effects can be deadly, according to the Orlando Sentinel.  Known also as MDMA or Ecstasy, Molly was responsible for the death of a New Hampshire college student over Labor Day weekend, as well as several other recent deaths.  Molly tends to be a more potent and purer form of Ecstasy than was found at raves during the past two decades, making it even more dangerous than the drug that Gen X-ers remember.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
