About Ecstasy and MDMA
Ecstasy is a somewhat distinctive drug. Specifically, ecstasy is a both stimulant and hallucinogen. Additionally, ecstasy is an illegal, synthetic drug of abuse that usually is consumed in pill, tablet, or capsule form. Also, Ecstasy stimulant effects will provide a boost of energy and awareness while the hallucinogenic effects will trigger senses of a distorted reality. In the medical world, it is known as Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA). Ecstasy is also known by these common street names: Molly, E, X, XTC, beans and Adam. Though the drug may be called different names, the chemical 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) is what creates the effects of the drug. However, ecstasy is illegal and has no current medically approved uses. However, there is a lot of research being done around MDMA and PTSD issues. Ecstasy is usually manufactured in laboratories overseas and in Canada before being trafficked into the United States. Makers of the drug often make tablets that look like candies in the likeness of cartoon characters. As a result, it creates more interest from users seeking that specific art design.
