Bad Molly

March 10, 2023

I’m hearing reports of a substance being distributed in the Ithaca community which dealers are calling Molly, but may contain an unknown mix of chemicals causing unintended reactions, including substance-induced psychosis and extreme anxiety lasting for weeks. If you suspect someone has suffered from an overdose or ingested something dangerous, call 911 immediately. Timely intervention can save lives. Both NY State and Cornell have Good Samaritan (“Good Sam”) protocols that protect from judicial and legal consequences for those who call for help – and those who receive help – in alcohol or drug (AOD) related emergencies. Additional information and service for AOD concerns are available at Cornell Health.
