MEET MOLLY : NEW GIRL ON CAMPUS

    Do you know someone named Molly?

    I don’t mean a human, either. Chances are, you’ve heard of Molly. She’s been all over the news since the tragedy at the House of Blues on Lansdowne Street, where a 19-year-old girl died of an overdose during a Zedd concert.

    And then there was the email from the Bridgewater State University Wellness Center, warning about Molly and all of the problems she comes with.

This Molly, she’s a dangerous girl. Not someone you want to spend time with.

    But what exactly is Molly? Well, science says it is essentially a powder form of pure MDMA. It is similar to ecstasy, but ecstasy is usually laced with other drugs. Because it is pure MDMA, Molly has more severe side-effects, and overdosing is much easier to do.

    But Molly has been around for a while. She’s only just hitting the spotlight as electronic music (EDM) becomes more mainstream.

    Online, users of the drug say Molly really isn’t MDMA – that it’s a completely new drug with every use, and they have never experienced the same drug twice. Some have said that it causes an incredible euphoria, better than winning the lottery.

    That’s a crazy thought, in my opinion. How is that even possible?

    Sure, there are plenty of drugs in the world, but how could you have a different drug every time you took it?

    EDM is a huge music genre, especially among college students, and  I know I’m a fan of the music.

But does that mean I’m obligated to take the drug if I go to a show?

    From the way it sounds, it’s almost a necessity to experience a good show.

    Personally, I don’t think it’s very smart, but I’m the type to live and let live. I can see why some would want the experience. But science says it has the potential to be addictive. Are you willing to take that risk?

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Review

I’ll admit, I wasn’t a fan of the first Sonic the Hedgehog movie from pre-pandemic 2020, which I didn’t think was a hot take at the time, but oh was I wrong! As video game movies go, the film adaptation of beloved Sega character Sonic was weirdly accepted, some even dubbing it the best video […]

The Batman Review

Throughout Batman’s onscreen history, we’ve seemingly explored every angle the character has.  From the goofy surrealism of Adam West-era Batman, to Gothic camp of Tim Burton’s Batman,  and then the maximalist circus of Joel Schumacher’s Batman, ending with the gritty realism of Christopher Nolan’s Batman, the film history of the Dark Knight is full of […]
