The public service announcement ‘Cookin With Molly’ urges the youth party drug users to be more vigilant about MDMA, Popularly known as Ecstasy or Molly.
Toronto Crime Stoppers Vice Chair Sean Sportun said,
We felt compelled to raise awareness about this issue to help make our communities safer. MDMA pills don’t come with a list of ingredients and since they can be cut with anything from LSD to caffeine, users can never be certain of what they are getting.
Detective Chris Scherk, A Crime Stoppers coordinator, said:
This is in response to the summer rave tragedy where two young adults lost their lives as a result of consuming an unknown narcotic pill they likely believed was ecstasy, which is an MDMA compound and goes by a number of street names, the most common being Molly. Molly isn’t made by a pharmaceutical company. It’s made in basements, garages and on the streets. We are hoping that this video will resonate with youths and adults. Truly, you don’t always know that what you are told is what you are given.
The ‘Cookin With Molly’ PSA campaign follows the death of two people at the Summer 2014 VELD Music Festival.
The video closes with

The lab was too clean.
