Molly, a powder or crystalline
form of MDMA that implied
greater purity and safety: Ecstasy
re-branded as a gentler, more
approachable drug.

Thanks in part to that new
moniker, MDMA has found a new
following in a generation of
conscientious professionals who

Teens drink hand sanitizer to get
buzzed. Sanitizers contain 60%
ethyl alcohol which is equivalent
to 120 proof liquor.
•
A typical 240 ml container of hand
sanitizer gel contains comparable
alcohol to 5 shots of hard liquor.
•
Teenagers use makeshift
distilleries, using salt to separate
the alcohol from the sanitizer to
come up with a potent drink.
•
Recent trends include mixing
hand sanitizer with Listerine to
make a strong minty cocktail,
mixing the gel with salt to
separate the alcohol from the gel
and distilling the alcohol from
hand sanitizer.
