New York Sen. Charles Schumer is pushing legislation to give the federal government a greater ability to regulate chemicals used in the deadly club drug known as “molly.”
There’s been a rash of overdoses involving the drug. It’s a form of MDMA, or ecstasy.
Schumer says dealers are getting around federal law by slightly tweaking the chemical composition of banned substances.
He’s also urging a new focus on MDMA labs by the New York and New Jersey High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area group and the Office of National Drug Control Policy.
