MDMA (3, 4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine) is the scientific name for the pure synthetic substance that is typically the base of Ecstasy, also called “Molly.” Since MDMA is an unregulated, illegal substance, Ecstasy potency can vary wildly. While some pills can contain 100 percent pure MDMA, others can include other drugs and toxins, to the point that they contain no MDMA at all.
Molly/Ecstasy is notorious for containing unpredictable ingredients and being the most commonly adulterated drug. Pure MDMA alone is dangerous. Cut ecstasy can be lethal.
