  1. 1) What is Molly?
    Molly is a drug

    2) Why is Molly becoming popular?
    Beacuse some people take Molly and they think it good for them
    And Made them cool too.

    3) What do you think could happen to you if you use Molly?
    It might put you in a hospital or it can made you die and it might made you crazy too .

  2. 1- Molly Is a drug in powder form inside capsules, that’s is recently becoming popular

    2-Molly is becoming popular because of people wanting to experience new drugs and the music teens listen to promote it.

    3-you’ll be experience, I don’t necessarily think its harmfull.

  3. Molly Is three drugs in a power from that’s sits inside a capsules.

    Molly is becoming popular because of rap and poeple wanting to take a new way to get high

    I think I would get high and be more wilder than normal.

    Molly is a synthetic drug, meaning that it’s made of chemicals. It comes in colorful pills, tablets, or capsules that sometimes have cartoon-like images on them. Sometimes each pill, or batch of pills, can have different combinations of substances in the mix and cause unknown consequences.

    Despite these harmful consequences, NIDA’s Monitoring the Future study shows that past-year Ecstasy use is up significantly among college students and young adults age 19–28. Another report shows that emergency room visits related to Ecstasy increased nearly 123% from 2004 to 2009; two-thirds of these visits involved 18–29 year olds. This is troubling news, since we’re still learning how Ecstasy affects the brain. Tell us what you think of Madonna’s “Molly” mix-up. If Madonna’s comment had been referring to drug use, would that change your opinion of her? Are you more likely to buy her album “MDNA” (coincidentally similar to MDMA) since hearing about this in the news? Let us know in the comments.

    Potential side effects of MDMA include feelings of sadness, anxiety, depression, and memory difficulties. These can last for several days to a week (or longer in people who use it regularly).

    A study in animals showed that exposure to high doses of MDMA for 4 days produced brain damage that could still be seen 6 to 7 years later.

    Because it is easy to get and any one can make it.

    I would tell them they are a retard and you will die.
