Many drugs are associated with the party scene, including ecstasy. This type of drug produces euphoric feelings and greatly enhanced sensations in the body, particularly when it comes to touch.
Ecstasy is a type of chemical; more specifically, MDMA, or 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine. MDMA was originally used by psychiatrists as a drug to help patients in therapy. By the late 1980s, the MDMA became quite popular among recreational users, particularly at raves, nightclubs, and other party venues.
While MDMA is often referred to as ecstasy by recreational users, others refer to it as “Molly.” On its own, MDMA has a stimulating and hallucinogenic effect on the brain. However, both ecstasy and Molly have certain differences that set them apart from one another. While the effects of Molly and ecstasy are relatively the same, the two drugs should be differentiated.
