One of the newer recreational drugs making its way across the nation was discovered and seized during a recent drug bust conducted by the Coffee County Sheriff’s Office and Douglas Police Department’s Joint Drug Task Force (JDTF) on Thursday, March 7. The drug, referred to as “Molly,” which is short for molecule, is part of a so-called “craze” and is “extremely dangerous,” according to local law enforcement officials. This was the first time the drug has been seized in Coffee County.    

            The JDTF executed a search warrant at an apartment located at 1605 Spivey Street in Douglas, and Nattiel M. Carter was arrested and charged with several offenses. 

            A large quantity of MDMA Ecstasy (Molly) and marijuana, scales, and packaging material consistent with distribution were found at the location. In addition, a 9mm handgun and $2,556 in cash were seized.

Carter was arrested and charged with Possession of MDMA Ecstasy with Intent to Distribute, Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Distribute, and Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon.

            The “Molly” drug that was found and is making its way across the country normally is made up of a mixture of cocaine, crack cocaine, Ecstasy, methamphetamine, and bath salts, according to multiple reports, including one on the United States Drug Enforcement Agency website. 

            The “cocktail” drug is currently “very popular” among teenagers and is “prevalent” on many college campuses and “the club scene.”

            The drug “slows the heart rate 10 times the normal limit, wreaks havoc on the immune system with just one pill, and can cause damage to the brain.”

            Described as a “very powerful and dangerous” drug, “Molly” can be addictive and significantly increases a user’s chance of a heart attack and/or stroke and can cause the lungs to stop functioning.”  

            Other ingredients in the drug, according to the DEA, many times include heroin and ketamine, and rat poison has even been found in some seizures. 

            The DEA website also says that multiple deaths have been reported due to users mixing the drug with other drugs such as amphetamines, cocaine, and large amounts of alcohol.
