WHAT IS MDMA?
3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine, or MDMA, is a synthetic psychoactive compound that is widely recognized for its ability to decrease fear while increasing feelings of trust, empathy and compassion. MDMA is often misrepresented as being the same as the street drugs "Molly" or "Ecstacy". While these drugs may contain traces of MDMA, they frequently also contain unknown and/or dangerous adulterants.
In laboratory studies, pure MDMA has been proven sufficiently safe for human consumption when taken a limited number of times in moderate doses (MAPS).
