Pop icon Rihanna sings about Molly and moonshine.
Rappers Lil Durk and Wiz Khalifa named one of their collaborations "Molly Girl."
And in her hit "We Can't Stop," Miley Cyrus sings of dancing with Molly.
Molly, a drug popular in the club scene, has made its way into pop culture and emerged as a drug of choice for college students, young adults and suburbanites across the country.
In Central Florida, federal authorities are concerned because they're seeing large amounts of Molly being imported from China and other countries, but it is not leaving the region for distribution elsewhere.
"It looks like it's staying here, which means there's a user base here," said Jeff Walsh, assistant special agent in charge at the DEA's Orlando office.
At this time last year, the DEA's Orlando office had no active Molly cases. Walsh wouldn't say exactly how many Molly cases his agents are working today but said they are in the double digits.
"It is much more prevalent now than it has been in the past," Walsh said.
Molly — slang for molecular — refers to the pure form of the club drug MDMA, which in pill form is known as Ecstasy.
Users think Molly is a safe alternative to Ecstasy because it is marketed as pure MDMA and is thought to have relatively low addictive characteristics.
But the reality of Molly is far from safe.
Drug dealers cut their supply with a variety of fillers, so users have no way of knowing what they are really ingesting.
In recent weeks, several people have overdosed after taking suspected Molly.
On Aug. 28, three people at a House of Blues concert in Boston overdosed on the drug. One of those concertgoers died. The other two became seriously ill.
Days later, three young men attending a Sound Tribe Sector 9 concert in Boston were hospitalized after suffering what appeared to be the effects of a drug overdose. Molly is also suspected in those illnesses.
In Central Florida, fatal MDMA overdoses are rare, and tests do not show whether a user took Molly or Ecstasy.
Still, the health concerns associated with Molly use are significant.
"It's extremely, extremely dangerous to the user," Walsh said. "A lot of that is not known by the people who use it."
One of the biggest problems, Walsh said, is that there's no consistency with the chemical properties of the drug.
