CHANTILLY,Va. – There are increased warnings about a new designer drug that continues to show up across this Mid -Atlantic Region. It’s called “Molly,” a form of ecstasy, a semi-synthetic chemical compound and it is becoming all too popular with high school and college-age students.
“Obviously, it’s becoming a trend that we need to get ahead of,” says Fairfax County Police Chief Ed Roessler.
Fairfax County has had 168 cases involving “Molly” between January 2012 and last month. Police have confiscated 16.7 pounds of the drug in its powder form, and more than 3,000 pills in that time.
