Drug testing for MDMA (Ecstasy/Molly)
MDMA, or 3, 4-methylene-dioxymethamphetamine, is a Schedule I drug and can produce feelings of euphoria, emotional warmth, decreased anxiety and hallucinogenic effects. The Drug Enforcement Administration describes MDMA, also called Ecstasy or Molly, as a drug which acts as a stimulant and psychedelic, producing an energizing effect, distortions in time, and perception and enhanced enjoyment of tactile experiences. Long-term physical effects of MDMA use include irritability, trouble sleeping, anxiety and addiction according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
MDMA has a reputation for being a club drug distributed in tablet form with logos and brand names for users to seek out. Pills, capsules, or powders sold as ecstasy and supposedly "pure" Molly may contain other drugs instead of or in addition to MDMA, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
