I'm Hooked On Molly

I'm Hooked On Molly

A disturbing new documentary on MTV explores the trending molly drug culture in the US.

You might remember a few months ago when the Internet / music blogs were buzzing with the news that MTV producers had staged a casting call looking for people who were hooked on molly (the street term for the pure powder or crystalized form of MDMA). The casting call caused more than a bit of controversy, given it fell right in the middle of the American festival season (and amidst anger relating to drug-related deaths at some shows). 

MTV found their stars, and today they aired the first episode of True Life: I'm Hooked On Molly. The show follows two girls struggling with their addiction to molly in the States. One of the show's protagonists is Paige, a 23 year old former-dancer from Las Vegas, who claims she "doesn't know how to have fun without it", and snorts the drug every day, ocassionally 'hot railing' it (nasal smoking). It also dips into some background and context regarding molly as a trending drug in party culture, and its permeation of rap and popular culture.

If you're thinking this is some educational, condescending documentary, think again: shit gets dark and real pretty quickly.
