Word on the street is that addicts are now combining Ketamine, Molly and Cocaine to form a new powerful drug Ketamollicaine in order to increase their high for longer periods of time.
When used alone Ketamine, Molly and Cocaine can produce some serious hallucinations, irritability, intense feelings of euphoria and high only to be accompanied by a downward crash, anxiety, depressed mood, paranoia, restlessness and more.
So imagine if they were taken all together? No bueno.
Let’s break them down individually so you can see the danger in these drugs.
What is ketamine?
Ketamine is a drug that is used for medical purposes in human and veterinary medicine. Ketamine is mainly used as a part of general anesthesia, mixed with a sedative. Other medical uses for ketamine are in intensive care, treatment of bronchospasm and in the ER. The effects of ketamine on humans include hallucinations, elevated blood pressure, and anesthesia.
Ketamine has also shown itself to be helpful in treating depression in people who also have bipolar disorder and who aren’t responding to anti-depressants. In people who have a major depressive disorder, ketamine works as a rapid anti-depressant as opposed to anti-depressants that take weeks to begin working.
The non-medical use of ketamine probably began somewhere in the 1970s. Ketamine use has increased since then especially within raves and clubs. Ketamine is also known as a club drug even though it differs from its sister drugs such as MDMA and cocaine.
Some of the short term effects of ketamine are:
- Blurred vision
- Vivid dreams
- Altered hearing
- Altered body image
Molly is also known as ecstasy or MDMA and is only sold as an illicit street drug. Molly is the street name for pure MDMA. Molly is different than ecstasy pills because it comes in powder form that is commonly more clean or pure than what is in the ecstasy pills. The term Molly is allegedly derived from “molecule”.
Molly use can induce euphoria and a sense of intense intimacy with others. Along with euphoria and intimacy it also can diminish anxiety. Many studies have shown that molly has therapeutic benefits because of these positive effects. Although molly is criminalized in most countries and its possession, manufacturing, and sale may result in criminal prosecution. There are some limited exceptions that exist for scientific and medical research when it comes to molly. Molly is also known as club drug just like ketamine but is different. Some of the effects produced by molly are:
• An alteration in consciousness
• A strong sense of inner peace and self-acceptance
• Diminished fear, anxiety, and insecurity
• Diminished aggression, hostility, and jealousy
• Feelings of intimacy and love for others
• Feelings of empathy, compassion and forgiveness towards others
• Increased energy and endurance
• Mild psychedelic, mental imagery and auditory and visual distortions or hallucinations
• Improved self confidence
Cocaine is an intense nervous system stimulant. Cocaine is found within the leaves of the Erthroxylum coca plant in South America. Cocaine is only found as an illicit street drug and is not used in most if any medical situations. The effects of cocaine depend on how it is ingested can last from 15 to 30 minutes or even up to an hour. The positive effects of cocaine are alertness, feelings of well-being and euphoria, energy and increased motor activity, feelings of competence and sexuality. Many people use cocaine in order to get these effects and to stay awake to part longer and harder. Cocaine is highly addictive and has some pretty intense negative effects. The negative effects of cocaine use include and are not limited to;
• Mood swings
• An intense craving to increase cocaine use
• Nausea and vomiting
Ketamine, molly and cocaine are all club drugs that are used to perpetuate the part. All three drugs can be addictive especially cocaine and should not be mixed together to be on the safe side. Whenever using drugs such as ketamine, molly and cocaine make sure to get the facts and be aware.
