MDMA, or “Mollie”, is a crystalized powder, and is considered to be chemically pure version of the popular rave drug, Ecstasy. MDMA’s effects include excessive euphoria, lack of inhibitions and anxiety, heightened sense of intimacy with surrounding people, and a mild degree of psychedelic. Sounds like a fun trip, right?
Well like most drugs, the ‘come down’ and long term mental and physical damage are incredibly detrimental, outweighing the temporary excitement of the high. The short term effects of usage include paranoia, anxiety, renal failure, hemorrhaging, hyperthermia resulting in organ failure, severe depression, irritability, fatigue, emotional sensitivity, lack of focus/ motivation/ drive, restlessness, disruption of sleep, nausea, jaw clenching, fever symptoms, heart failure, kidney failure, arrhythmia, high blood pressure, panic attacks, faintness, seizures, and in some cases, death.
