Ecstasy is an amphetamine modified with an active profile that overlaps with that of stimulants and hallucinogens. It is the active ingredient in MDMA, 3-4 methamphetamine, which causes a change in mood, consciousness, and euphoria.

Both ecstasy and Molly stand made from MDMA, but ecstasy is used in a so-called “designer version” in tablet or tablet form, while Molly uses a white powder or crystal – a substance similar to what stands used. Molly remains considered a purer form of MDMA because it stands packaged in capsules, and all other chemicals in the drug stay cut out. According to the forensic toxicologist, many Ecstasy tablets purchased by drug users are not “pure,” instead, they contain various amounts of other harmful drugs like bath salts, methamphetamine, cocaine, MDA, and PMA, among others.
