Ecstasy

3,4-methylenedioxy-methamphetamine (MDMA) is a synthetic drug that alters mood and perception (awareness of surrounding objects and conditions). It is chemically similar to both stimulants and hallucinogens, producing feelings of increased energy, pleasure, emotional warmth, and distorted sensory and time perception.

MDMA was initially popular in the nightclub scene and at all-night dance parties (“raves”), but the drug now affects a broader range of people who more commonly call the drug Ecstasy or Molly.

Research results vary on whether MDMA is addictive. Experiments have shown that animals will self-administer MDMA-an important indicator of a drug’s abuse potential-although to a lesser degree than some other drugs such as cocaine.
