A drug called Molly is becoming increasingly popular in local schools.
This revelation comes from Student Support Services Manager Professor Dennis Conrad, while speaking on a recent video showing students smoking what appears to be marijuana.
The US National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) says Molly, usually in the form of a tablet or capsule, gives “feelings of increased energy, pleasure, emotional warmth, and distorted sensory and time perception.”
According to Mr Conrad, this drug may be knocking weed off its pedestal as the drug of choice for school children.
NIDA says, in the US, Molly was initially popular in nightclubs and at all-night dance parties, but now affects a broader range of people.
