MDMA is also known as Molly. It is the popular way of referring to MDMA-type drugs (abbreviated version of 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine), produced in laboratories, such as ecstasy.

It is one of the most popular drugs that can be found for consumption at youth events such as discotheques, where electronic music is played and concerts are held. MDMA or Molly is one of the most widely distributed drugs at such festivals.

It can also produce psychedelic effects very similar to hallucinogens such as mescaline and LSD. It is currently consumed by a wider variety of people and its effects can generally last between three and six hours.

The reason for using Molly is because it causes a feeling of euphoria and increased energy. Precisely in the nightlife scene, it is consumed as a stimulant to dance the night away and feel that high.
Perhaps that is why there is also an accentuated tendency to consume this drug during events of urban artists or festivals. In fact, currently in the reggaeton and trap genre, several of its exponents mention it in their lyrics.


The artist Zowie in one of his songs has a phrase that says: “Eating “molly like itching” Precisely in reference to the fact that they are consuming ecstasy as candy.

During the nineties the popularity of this drug increased because it was considered less dangerous and purer than other drugs. Specifically, the growing positioning of Molly at that time displaced the consumption of LSD.
