Facts About MDMA ("Ecstasy", "Molly")
MDMA (3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine), commonly referred to as ecstasy or molly, is sold either as a pressed pill taken orally, or as a powder that is snorted or swallowed. People who use ecstasy describe themselves as feeling open, accepting, unafraid and connected to people around them. Before MDMA became popular at clubs and raves, it was utilized for therapeutic purposes by psychologists and other mental health practitioners in the 1970s and early 1980s. Over the last decade, clinical research studies evaluating its medical and therapeutic applications have shown promising results.
