Looks can be deceiving: only 60% of 'Molly' capsules actually contain MDMA – Dancing Astronaut
One should always expect a certain degree risk if choosing to purchase and consume street drugs. A new study by the Journal Pychopharmacology has found that when it comes to the ever-popular substance “Molly (),” that risk is considerably larger than what many its consumers think.
Of 529 caps sampled within the study taken from the non-prit organization DanceSafe, only 60% contained any sort MDMA at all. In other words, if this ratio applies to all Molly sales across the US, those buying doses the drug for a fun weekend out are taking a high-risk gamble – one in which the odds that what they’re buying is different than what they think it is are at nearly 50%. 13 the samples contained methamphetamine, while 3 contained the deadly drug PMA, which recently became publicized for causing multiple medical issues in the UK when being sold under the guise MDMA.
Perhaps the most shocking part the study is that after surveying those buying such drugs, a whopping 26% said they would still ingest what they paid form even after discovering there was no trace MDMA in the pill, especially considering most prefer ‘Molly’ over pressed ecstasy pills due to it being advertised as a purer, powder form the drug. It seems a segment the population really likes to live their life on the edge. For those who prefer to be safe and healthy, these findings highlight the importance testing substances before taking them, and ensuring they’re purchasing substances from as trustworthy a source as they can.
