The manmade “club drug” MDMA—which is also popular in the nightclub scene, “raves” (all-night dance parties), music festivals, and concerts—produces energizing effects similar to amphetamines, as well as psychedelic effects, similar to the hallucinogens mescaline and LSD. MDMA is also known as Adam, Beans, Clarity, E, Ecstasy, Hug, Love drug, Lover’s speed, Molly, X, XTC, and other local slang terms. Despite some promising signs that MDMA use in teens remains steady according to NIDA’s 2019 Monitoring the Future survey, past month LSD use among sophomores and seniors showed highest levels since 2000.

Materials, including booklets and educational posters, can be ordered directly from the NIDA clearinghouse in advance of your NDAFW event. To ensure materials arrive in time, please order them no later than 2 weeks prior to your event or activity.
