Alabama Police Chief Believes “Molly” Is “a Combination of Meth and Ecstasy”

Adding to the recent hysteria surrounding the prevalence of everybody’s favorite stimulant called “molly,” backwoods Alabama Police Chief Sonny Bedsole tells his local newspaper, The Andalusia Star-News, that the drug is “basically like a souped-up form of Ecstasy…a combination of meth and Ecstasy.”

And in the scaremongering fashion that is much of today’s drug reporting, the Star-News just went ahead and reported it.

The truth is that molly is technically the exact same thing as ecstasy: MDMA. While both words have seemingly been co-opted by a generation that doesn’t understand the true effects of MDMA, and come to be used to describe just about any synthetic powder-form stimulant, the fact remains that molly is not in any way “a souped-up form of ecstasy.” If anything, molly is (mostly falsely) believed to be a 100% pure form of MDMA. Which would make it just ecstasy. And because of the recent proliferation of adulteration in what people refer to as molly, it would be a watered-down version of ecstasy, if ecstasy at all.

Kind of the opposite of what that guy said.
