  2. “Molly” Presentation forAdministrators, Teachers and Parents

  3. Overview: To assist and provide administration, teachers and parents with an insight and awareness of recent use of the drug “Molly” (MDMA, Ecstasy)

  4. What is MDMA? • Common Street Names • Molly • Ecstasy • (Slang terms- E, XTC, X, LuvDrug, Rolling Face, Hug) • 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine, a name that’s nearly as long as the all-night parties where MDMA is often used. That's why MDMA has been called a “club drug.” It has effects similar to those of other stimulants, and it often makes the person feel like everyone is his or her friend, even when that’s not the case.1 • MDMA is man-made—it doesn't come from a plant like marijuana or tobacco. Other chemicals or substances—such as caffeine, dextromethorphan (found in some cough syrups), amphetamines, PCP, or cocaine—are sometimes added to, or substituted for, MDMA in Ecstasy or Molly tablets. Makers of MDMA can add anything they want to the drug, so its purity is always in question. 1http://www.drugabuse.gov/publications/drugfacts/mdma-ecstasy-or-molly
