Is Marijuana Legal Under Federal Law?

Marijuana is currently illegal under federal law. Federal law divides each drug into a “schedule” classification according to its properties. Schedule I drugs include almost all illegal drugs, while Schedule V drugs are the least addicting, such as some cough medicines. Schedule I drugs carry the most severe punishments under federal law.

Molly is a dangerous drug

Miley Cyrus is dancing with her, Kanye West sings about her. So who is Molly? Molly is a fairly common street drug that causes hallucinations and euphoria but also promises a terrifying and horrific crash.

In addition to the drug’s advertised purity and potency, celebrity endorsements are boosting its popularity. What’s not as widely advertised is the fact it’s dangerous, addictive and even deadly.

Molly is short for chemical molecule, referring to a purer form of 4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA). The same white powder as what’s in the drug Ecstasy – raises serotonin levels in the brain and induces feelings of euphoria, pleasure, empathy and closeness, often leading to unprotected sexual activity. The high can last three to six hours and the crash that follows is worse than any hangover you’ve ever experienced.
