Molly, a pure form of Ecstasy or MDMA, is the new, hot drug of choice for many young people who falsely believe the drug is safe. Often handed out at raves and cut with a variety of dangerous substances, Molly is exposed as the grave danger that it really is. Interviews with former Molly users and drug abuse experts drive home the message that taking Molly is playing Russian Roulette with your life.

Highly Recommended. Shocking and informative, Molly exposes the deadly realities behind a popular, highly addictive drug with a deceptively friendly name. The film begins with the question of whether Molly is really just a chemical variation on Ecstasy, the infamous party drug of the late 1980s and ‘90s, arguing that Molly appears to be much worse, responsible for destroying the body’s cells, overheating the brain, and changing a user’s personality over time as addiction sets in. Molly has caused deaths among young people, and also seems to be a genuine gateway drug to heroin and other harmful substances. Personal experiences are related here by a couple of former users who descended into utter helplessness, stealing from loved ones, abandoning relationships, and trading sex to obtain another dose. Viewers also hear from a couple of experts about the unreliability of pills being sold as Molly: often the product is actually a hodgepodge of dangerous chemicals and stimulants that don’t even contain Molly’s key ingredient, MDMA (which makes it tough for emergency room doctors to know how to treat a victim of an overdose). Featuring a PDF teacher’s resource booklet, this timely anti-drug guidance program is highly recommended.
