If you have ever heard people talking about something called “Molly”, you certainly may wonder “what is Molly?”
I have just returned from the Electric Forest Music Festival where the question was not “what is Molly?” but rather “do you know where I can get some Molly?”
Why would people be asking this at a music festival, you ask. Well, it’s because Molly is a drug and Molly is slang for pure ecstasy, also known as MDMA.
And, at an Electronic Music Festival, nearly everybody, certainly all of the 30,000 people at the Electric Forest Festival, are taking “Molly”.
On the wikipedia Molly-MDMA page, one of the reported subjective side effects is an “uncontrollable urge to dance.” And, definitely, people are dancing all day and night at the Electronic Forest Festival.
Is Molly Dangerous? Should You Try Molly?
I am not a scientist but there is certainly a lot of information out there about Molly. Here are some Google searches that you can just click and see many different perspectives:
These are all searches that you might want to take a look at. It’s always important to know what you are putting into your body.
However, I will say two things and, mind you, this is my subjective assessment but based on real experiences.
One, I have always shied away from all heavy drugs and initially I thought Molly was in this category and so I stayed away from it.
However, after doing lots of reading, my opinion on that has changed.
Molly is not in that category of heavy drugs; it simply makes you happy and loving with a strong desire to dance, love life, and be intrigued by colors of all variety 🙂
Update: Are you getting pure MDMA?: The reality nowadays is that much of the “Molly” that people are getting is not real MDMA. Thus, the immediate and lasting effects will not be the true “Molly” experience and you should take immense caution because these drugs are manufactured under very shady and dubious scenarios. Here is a recent report.
