MDMA (Ecstasy/Molly)

MDMA, short for 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine, is most commonly known as Ecstasy or Molly.

MDMA is a laboratory-made drug that produces a “high” similar to the stimulants called amphetamines. So this synthetic drug alters mood and perception (awareness of surrounding objects and conditions).

It is chemically similar to both stimulants and hallucinogens, producing feelings of increased energy, pleasure, emotional warmth, and distorted sensory and time perception.
