Ecstasy is a synthetic drug that alters mood and perception. It is chemically similar to stimulants and hallucinogens.

Ecstasy and molly often come in tablets of many colors and designs. They usually have ingrained images or writing on the pill.

During the 1980's, the use of the name "ecstasy, or empathy" increased when describing the new colorful pill that was becoming popular. This new "happy drug" was extremely popular in gay and urban communities. By 1990, ecstasy was entrenched in nightclubs.

Ecstasy was originally developed by Merck pharmaceutical company in 1912. It was used in 1953 in the army as a psychological warfare testing substance. This drug is man made, usually manufactured in a lab. The makers of the drug can add anything they choose to the drug, causing there to be many different symptoms when taken. The drug is essentially made of many different drugs such as LSD, methamphetamine, rat poison, caffeine, and floor cleaner.

Ecstasy/Molly most commonly comes in pill form, with cartoons or messages engraved on the pill, but can also be available as an injection or liquid.

Short term effects: extreme energy boost, distortion of time and perception, increased enjoyment from sexual interaction, inability to regulate temperature, liver and cardiovascular failure, anxiety, and a feeling of extreme hunger.

Long term effects: serious cardiovascular issues, heart failure, depression, addiction, heart palpitations, sleep anxiety.

Using ecstasy causes an increased craving for sexual interaction, leading to many cases of rape. This is connected to the fact that the use of ecstasy is illegal. This drug is often called the gang rape drug because of this. Emotional outbursts can also occur, causing one to damage relationships, leading to a lonely life.

Ecstasy, like most harmful drugs, has a negative impact on relationships in that addiction can lead to withdraw from contact with one's family. The symptoms alone can ruin relationships, as a rise in body temperature, blurred vision, and nausea can cause frequent outbreaks.

If one is addicted or a frequent user of ecstasy, all hope is not lost. The Drug Abuse Hotline, CRC Health, and group therapy sessions can all help with addiction, and lead to the path of recovery.
