According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, molly is the powder or crystal form of MDMA — or 3, 4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine, a chemical drug most commonly known for its use in the pressed pill Ecstasy.

Unlike Ecstasy, which has a reputation for being laced with everything from caffeine to methamphetamine, molly — a name shortened from “molecule” — is thought of as “pure” MDMA.

The DEA labels it a Schedule 1 controlled substance, considered to have a high potential for abuse and no accepted use in medical treatment, which means it’s illegal.

This year, molly was abundant at music festivals — if you knew where to look. At Miami’s Ultra Music Festival, fliers littered the landscape mentioning her name like missing child posters: “Have you seen molly?” And when Madonna took to the stage to introduce an artist, the pop star asked the audience: “How many people in this crowd have seen molly?” A slew of cheers answered, though Madonna later said she’d been referring to a song, not to an illegal drug.

Hip-hop artists claim they know her — she’s casually mentioned by 2 Chainz in the Nicki Minaj track “Beez In the Trap,” by Childish Gambino in his song “Unnecessary,” by Kanye West in “Mercy,” by Danny Brown in “Die Like a Rockstar.”

It seems the drug is on the minds of many. But questions about who — or what — molly really is remain.
