dance music... the beat and the drugs changed in the late 20th century. I did research...never did molly, my research told me it was a mixture of derivatives of heroin, cocaine and acid and the word on the street... you love everybody NO WAY! molly gives your babies or the next generation deformations and disease to the 10 degree aka autism etc... good luck stupid assholes do not have kids.
