Molly and other Designer Drugs in Area

Local drug officials are warning about designer drugs popping up in our area.
ALTOONA, BLAIR COUNTY - Local drug officials are warning about designer drugs popping up in our area.

The drugs are similar to LSD and Ecstasy, and drug officials say kids in our area are using them, and so are people in pop culture.

Judy Rosser with Blair County Drug and Alcohol says the ecstasy drug Molly is just one of the designer drugs popping up in the area. Several popular entertainers sing and rap about the drug. Rosser says kids get turned on to the drugs by those songs, and it is tough to fight against that kind of power.

Doctors are calling Molly a dangerous party drug. People use it at concerts and club and can get so overheated that they overdose.

Another designer drug showing up in Blair County is an LSD style drug called 251 and N-Bomb.

The chemical is supposed to be used in things like pet scans. People using it get seizures and brain bleeds and can die.

Neither of the designer drugs are as popular as heroin or prescription pain killers locally, but Rosser's co-workers say kids in the area are using them.

Molly was recently in the news after a three day concert was cancelled after two people over dosed.
