DON’T F—K WITH MOLLY
Stuff Rappers Say: “Pop a molly, smoke a blunt, that mean I’m a high roller” —Lil Wayne, “Roman Reloaded”
What It Is:
Everyone from Kanye West to Gucci Mane to Wale has shouted out MDMA, known in the streets as “Molly,” an ecstasy relative that suppresses anxiety and invokes euphoria by manipulating the brain’s serotonin levels.
Why It’s Dangerous:
Flirting with the illegal substance has a price tag. Short-term effects can cause excessive sweats that induce hypothermia, while the addictive Ms. Molly can burn users with long-term brain damage and permanent memory loss (good golly). Rap’s hottest new sidepiece might keep the party turnt up, but you could feel her effects in the days—even years—to follow.
