The most recent video to surface deals with the history of MDMA. Roes describes the drug's origins, how it became popular and rounds it out by revealing the truth to some of today's common misconceptions.
The most common confusion when it comes to MDMA, is that Molly and Ecstasy are two different things. This is in fact false. The drug was first used by scientists to aid with therapy in order to reduce anxiety when discussing traumatic events. As time progressed, a pastor caught on and felt that it helped him connect with God. This was the first time the term "ecstasy" was used to describe the substance.
