Oh Molly!

"Ingesting the drug is simple. While it can be snorted, most people swallow it, and some wrap a concentrated amount in paper to speed up absorption, a method called parachuting. It is often mixed with caffeine, methamphetamine, and other substances. City health officials say that ecstasy overdoses are rare, accounting for less than 1 percent of the city’s cases. But the emergence of Molly, billed as a more potent form of ecstasy, raises new concerns."

And yet this state has its buns in in a bundle over medical marijuana! If it's synthetically made in a lab or distilled in a brewery and far more dangerous, ah -- until someone dies.

"House of Blues closed while police probe apparent overdoses" by Brian Ballou |  Globe Staff, August 28, 2013

Pounding electro beats filled the cavernous House of Blues Tuesday night as a mostly college-age crowd danced elbow-to-elbow to tunes spun by popular young German disc jockey Zedd. But after the show ended and the lights came on about 12:15 a.m. Wednesday, three people inside were down, apparently from drug overdoses.

Authorities said they might have taken a form of ecstasy known as Molly, a controversial drug that has recently soared in popularity in some cities....

The popular club on Lansdowne Street in Boston’s Fenway voluntarily shut down Wednesday night on the second scheduled night for Zedd.

It was unclear how long the club would stay closed....


I'm so glad I'm an old, sober f*** who is no fun at all.
