If you’re still under the impression that taking molly is harmless party drug that’s still cool to recite in rap songs, allow the tragic case of Victoria Callahan to alter your thinking.
The 19-year-old straight-laced college student died a few hours into attending a EDM concert at the popular D.C. venue Echostage.
Officials say Victoria Callahan was transported from the concert venue located at 2135 Queen Chapel Road in Northeast, D.C. around 12 a.m. She was taken to the Washington Hospital Center in stable condition.
The MedStar Washington Hospital confirmed Thursday afternoon that the young woman was in the emergency room and died sometime in the morning hours.
Callahan, a Sterling, Va. native, was a sophomore marine biology major at Coastal Carolina University. She made the dean’s list during her fall semester.
According to experts, molly is a psychoactive synthetic drug that many users mistakenly believe is a pure version of ecstasy. However, the version of molly found on the streets is usually a mishmash of unknown chemicals.
Callahan was attending an all-ages concert headlined by electronic dance music act Flume.
This is the second time a person has collapsed and later died after taking molly and attending a concert at Echostage. In September 2013, a University of Virginia sophomore died after taking molly before a show at the club.
In other words kids, taking molly is wack. Stick to fruit snacks.
