Molly 150mg capsules, The popular nickname Molly (slang for “molecular”) often refers to the supposedly “pure” crystalline powder form of MDMA, usually sold in capsules. However, people who purchase powder or capsules sold as Molly often actually get other drugs such as synthetic cathinones (“bath salts”) instead (see “Added Risk of MDMA”)
MDMA is usually taken orally as a pill, tablet, or capsule. The term Molly (slang for “molecular”) typically refers to the pure crystalline powder form of MDMA, which can be sold in capsules. However, these drugs are not regulated, so even capsules of supposedly pure “Molly” often contain other drugs, including ephedrine (a stimulant), dextromethorphan (a cough suppressant), ketamine, cocaine, methamphetamine, and synthetic cathinones (the psychoactive ingredients in “bath salts”). These substances are harmful alone and may be particularly dangerous when mixed with MDMA.
Because MDMA is frequently used at nightclubs, it is known as a “club drug”; it is also called a “designer drug,” since it is manufactured (“designed”) to give the user a particular kind of high.
Ecstasy developed a reputation for being cut with a lot of harsher and more addictive chemicals, so when Molly came on the scene later, the powder was allegedly purer than the pill. Molly is ingested orally, like ecstasy, but rather than binding it into a pressed pill, Molly is put into a gel capsule. Since the pill form of MDMA requires fillers to bind the main ingredient, the implication of powdered Molly is that the drug has not been cut or changed in any way. However, this is rarely the case; a report published in the Wall Street Journal in 2013 found that only 13 percent of drugs suspected to be Molly by law enforcement officials were actually MDMA.
