Have you heard about party drugs? Nowadays, party drugs are very common in many outdoor or even indoor events. In fact, in a most music festival, event goers were using party drugs.
One of the popular party drugs is Molly. Experts have been saying that although not all people know about it, millions have been using one form of party drug.
What is Molly
Molly is a powder form of MDMA or 3,4-methylenedioxy-N-methylamphetamine, a chemical component of a street drug Ecstasy. However, Molly is deemed to be safer than Ecstasy because it is said to be free from caffeine or methamphetamine.
Festival attendees and concertgoers prefer to use Molly because it has the ability to increase the performance of the brain’s neurotransmitters. Thus, it creates feelings of euphoria, more energy, and empathy to others. However, using this party drug has adverse effects on hearing, vision and sense of time.
Molly is classified as a Schedule I controlled substance by the Drug Enforcement Administration. This means that it is not recommended for medical treatment but rather it is addictive. A person who has been using it can experience anxiety, confusion, depression, sleep problems, drug cravings, and paranoia. It also prevents the ability of your body to regulate temperature. With this, it may result in elevated body temperature or hyperthermia.
How Long Does Molly Last in Your System?
Molly is available in capsule or powder form and some manufacturers produce this drug in injectable form. That’s why it can be easily used for recreational purposes.
But, before you decide to use Molly, you should know first how long it will stay in your system especially if you will undergo a drug test the following day.
- Molly can be detected in your blood up to 12 hours if you’d took a single dose, but for multiple doses, it will stay in your blood up to 24 hours.
- It stays in the urine from three to five days depending on the dose taken.
- It can be detected in the saliva for about three to five days.
- Molly stays in the hair for up to three months.
However, it may also depend on the number of drugs consumed. The bigger amount of substance you’ve taken, the longer it will stay in your system.
MDMA (ecstasy): 3-4 days in urine and 1-2 days in blood
