Ecstasy And Molly
Aggressively Fighting Ecstasy And Molly Charges
Ecstasy and Molly are two of the names for Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA), a synthetic hallucinogen. People often buy Ecstasy and Molly from dealers on the street. They can also purchase it over the internet.

With more than 35 years of combined experience, we know how to fight the government at the state and federal level.
The Penalties Are Harsh
Many people do not consider drugs such as Molly and Ecstasy dangerous. However, their side effects can include depression, sleeplessness, memory problems, nausea, blurry vision and anxiety. In the most severe cases, death can occur when dangerously high body temperature causes internal organs to fail.
Due to the potential danger of these drugs, the government takes these cases seriously. Under Florida law, possessing up to 10 grams of Molly and Ecstasy is a third-degree felony. The penalties for a conviction may include:
- A prison sentence of up to five years
- A fine of $5,000
- Five years of probation
- Two-year driver’s license suspension
These are harsh penalties, especially for someone who is only a user. Nonviolent, first-time offenders and people with drug addictions may be eligible for diversionary programs such as drug court. Getting into one of these programs may be beneficial because their purpose is on treatment, not punishment. We can work diligently to get you into a diversionary program if you meet the criteria.
