N.H. High School Asks Parents To Join 'Molly' Conversation
A New Hampshire high school has sent out an email to parents asking them to talk to their children about the party drug "Molly," which has been linked to two college student deaths.
School officials said they have not seen any evidence of Molly, considered a slang reference to the drug Ecstasy, on campus at Pembroke Academy. But they said they want the parents of their 875 students to know more about the drug.
WMUR-TV reports Jay Bachelder, an intervention and prevention counselor, says there's a false sense of security among young people that somehow Molly is a safer drug with fewer side effects than others.
Two college students with ties to New Hampshire are believed to have died from drug overdoses related to the drug.
