Why are youth and young adults taking Molly? Do they know what is in their Molly or their Ecstasy? Come to the Molly Youth Crisis Meeting at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday evening and find out why!
I know first hand what deadly synthetic drugs are, what they can do, and how they are manufactured and spread to communities like Oswego County. It has been over 6 years since the death of Victor Orlando Woolson (19 years old) from a synthetic drug (XLR-11). Local laws have helped keep these drugs out of stores. Federal laws have helped arrest several drug manufacturers of synthetic drugs. New federal laws have helped put a handful of harmful synthetic compounds on the controlled substance list. However, there are hundreds, yes hundreds, of identified harmful deadly synthetic chemicals still in circulation in the United States, including Central New York.
There is a new type of drug dealer - the chemist - who is being helped along with chemists in China creating several versions of synthetic research compounds, as well as others who are experimenting on their own. There is no regulation. This new drug dealer is helping to create harmful and deadly products that are being disguised as other drugs. Drugs like Heroin, Cocaine, Molly/Ecstasy are now being created with synthetic poisons, some of which are known to be deadly such as rat poison. The new drug dealers are very smart - they certainly don't try their drugs, but they watch the news to see how many people are harmed by them. The harm is attractive to the new drug dealer, proving their product is powerful.
Not that long ago, Ecstasy was known as the RAVE or party drug. Ecstasy was a Pill form of MDMA at that time. Then other forms of MDMA came on the scene, including Molly. This Ecstasy/Molly drug was causing some harm, including overheating and other harmful effects.
NOW, Molly contains unknown synthetic chemicals. Molly/Ecstasy is not what it used to be! Taken at a RAVE or a party, users are thinking that the drug is less potent at first and take more - causing much harm and death. THIS fake Molly takes longer to activate in a person's system, making them believe they have a less potent does of (MDMA) and then they take more. What is really happening, is that there is little to no MDMA at all - it's being designed to mimic the effects of MDMA. Designing a drug that contains stimulants and hallucinogens, hoping to cause users to become addicted. These random synthetic drugs are very addicting.
For those who have taken Molly or Ecstasy in the past - know that you are not getting the same drug today. It's not worth trying at a RAVE or any party, death is not worth it. YOU can help make a difference in our Community. Spread the word about Molly/Ecstasy and learn more about it.
