“Molly has made a name for itself as a dangerous designer drug. If you or someone you know gets involved with these street drugs, get immediate help before it's too late," said Robert Niznik, Harbor Village CEO.

As reported by USA Today (9/25) in their news story titled, Overdoses Attributed To Club Drug Molly Increase, that the club drug Molly's popularity, and the rapidly escalating number of deaths and illnesses associated with it, have caught the attention of Congress. Senator Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and Senator Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., have proposed legislation that would curb the rising use of the synthetic drugs like Molly and others including K2, Spice and "bath salts," which give the user a similar experience as found in illicit substances such as Ecstasy, PCP, LSD and marijuana.

"Synthetic drugs are diabolical," Feinstein said at a congressional hearing Wednesday. "This bill sends a strong message to drug traffickers who continually circumvent our nation's laws."

Underground chemists, manipulate the molecules of the chemicals to create new substances they hope will fall outside the reach of the law, Joseph Rannazzisi, deputy assistant administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration, said in testimony at the hearing. Government chemists have identified more than 250 compounds marketed as synthetic "designer drugs," he says.

"Unscrupulous chemists continue to synthesize new substances faster than we can control them," he says.

"Regardless of its precise chemical makeup, there appears little doubt that Molly is a clear and present threat to the health and safety of our young people," Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said Wednesday.
