Ecstasy, also known as Molly, is the chemical stimulant MDMA. It’s frequently used in club settings, and has been linked to injuries and deaths for years.
Most often sold in pill form – often as a mixture with other drugs, including heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, and more – and buyers have no way of knowing whether they’re taking MDMA, laced MDMA, or something else entirely.
Because of the dangers, New Jersey takes trafficking in Ecstasy very seriously. Even amounts of less than half an ounce carry a 3-5 year prison sentence, and fines of $75,000.
Half an ounce, up to five ounces, is more serious still, with a possible prison sentence of 5-10 years. More than five ounces of Ecstasy, whether as pills or powder, carries a sentence of 10-20 years.
Even worse, a pill that contains only a tiny fraction of MDMA is counted by weight. Not the weight of the MDMA, but the weight of the pill, so a caffeine pill spiked with some Ecstasy is weighed as a pill of Ecstasy.
New Jersey takes the possession and sale of club drugs like Ecstasy very seriously, and if you’ve been charged with Ecstasy trafficking, you should too.
