(Northampton, MA) — The dangerous club drug known as Molly has made its way to the Pioneer Valley. Early Wednesday a man was arrested in Northampton with a-thousand-dollars worth of the drug in his car. Molly is said to be a pure form of MDMA or “ecstasy” and is blamed for a rash of fatal overdoses in the Northeast. 18-year-old Alexander Volgin also allegedly had Adderall, cocaine and hashish in his possession. The Amherst man was pulled over while driving down King Street without a license plate.
