“Bad Batch” Of Molly Responsible For Deaths In Boston, DC, & New York? + Explanations

It looks that way. Although I’m pondering on the idea of what a “good batch” of molly is exactly? In an article via The Daily Beast, they explain it as the drug of choice for 1980s clubgoers, gaining a sticky reputation as “speed with a psychedelic and empathetic twist.”

Special thanks to YE and Miley Cyrus (and I do mean thanks in the most sarcastic way) as being only a couple of successful artists to promote the highly addictive drug in their songs. Fans will do just about anything that their beloved, most loved celebrity is doing — or wearing.

According to the New York Post:

Three of the deaths occurred on August 31. Two people died at the Electric Zoo music festival on New York’s Randall’s Island. That same day, in Washington, D.C., 19-year-old University of Virginia student Mary Goldsmith collapsed at a rave concert at a local nightclub called Echo Stage. She was rushed to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead after attempts to revive her failed. Three days earlier, another 19-year-old, Brittany Flannigan, a student at Plymouth State University in New Hampshire, took a fatal overdose while attending a concert at the House of Blues in Boston.

And to answer my question up top, thank you Andrew Pettigrew, spokesman for the Drug Enforcement Agency’s New England division. He says:

“There is no “good batch” of molly. This is stuff that’s made in somebody’s bathtub in either Asia, the Netherlands, Canada, you have no idea what is in this stuff. Dealers want to make more money, so they’ll mix and adulterate the stuff with meth and any number of other drugs to addict people to it.”

Sounds legit. Meanwhile in Tulsa he other day, a man reportedly died from synthetic marijuana. And so did someone here. And here. And here.

This deserves a SMH.
