Video: Electronic Music Duo’s Message About MDMA Gets It Right
This refreshingly funny and honest video explains what MDMA does to your brain, and how to use it safely.
MDMA catches a pretty bad rap in mainstream media, with stories often highlighting deaths related to the drug (nicknames “ecstasy” or “Molly,” depending on your generation) at shows and music events like the Electric Zoo. But fear-mongering has done little to harm the drug’s popularity with the young folks.
That’s why the honest and humorous message in this video, from the Electro/Trance/House duo Sokko & Lyons, is so refreshing. Instead of warning against its dangers, Alex Sacco and Doug Lyons explain what MDMA actually does to your brain and offer some alternatives, as well as tips on how to use it safely. More videos like this—and less like this overblown anti-Molly PSA—could actually have an impact on the EDM community. Because electronic music and MDMA go together like Cheech & Chong movies and marijuana. And that seems unlikely to change anytime soon.
