‘Molly kills’: Electric Zoo music festival cancelled after Ecstasy overdoses; 2 dead, 4 critical

Two concert-goers are dead and another 4 are critical after ingesting drugs at the Electric Zoo music festival in New York City on Randall’s Island Park.

Reaction ranged from flippant, to outraged, to resigned.

And then there was the dude who thinks cops should have to hand out free bottled water to drug-users to keep them hydrated. Sigh.

Former Swedish House Mafia DJ Sebastian Ingrosso, who performed at Electric Zoo, sent his condolences:

Wake up, young people. Molly kills.

    Cops should hand out water PFFFFFT. Dumbasses. If you have to take this stuff to “feel” the music, maybe the music sucks? Just a thought.

    • VL123

      you realize he was kidding? Dumbass…. no the music doesn’t suck…maybe your ignorant comment does.

      • truckee22

        No, the “music” sucks. If you can call it “music”.

      • Jimni27

        And how did you know he was kidding? And yes, techno sucks, sorry.

        • VL123

          you show your ignorance.

          • Jimni27

            Okay bud whatever you say. I’m ignorant because I don’t like music that involves one guy on stage with a bunch of turntables churning out nothing but bass that is only enjoyable if you are stoned. I can live with that.
            You show your ignorance by not reading that guys follow up tweet saying he didn’t know there was free water at the venue. So, he wasn’t kidding. He really expected the cops to accommodate the drug takers. That’s the country we live in now. No personal responsibility- if you want to take drugs at a hot summer concert- make the cops give you water. How bout you bring your own damn water?

          I don’t agree that the cops should hand out water, but I do think the Tweeter was kidding. He was referencing the Seattle PD handing out Doritos at Hempfest. http://seattletimes.com/html/localnews/2021614151_hempfestdoritosxml.html

          • Michelle

            That came to my mind also. The guy suggested handing out bottled water with ecstasy warnings, as in an in-their-face reminder the drug can kill them. It struck me that he got the idea from the cops in Seattle handing out Doritos. I don’t think he was kidding, I think he was trying to be helpful.

  • lazypadawan

    Ecstasy has been around since the ’80s and it has killed a number of people, mostly from dehydration. Users have the energy to dance for hours but the drug is drying them out as they’re sweating away in a stuffy club or warehouse. But these young kids aren’t being taught about drugs and their dangers anymore. Weed is harmless fun, cocaine is cool, and even Miley Cyrus sings about “Molly,” so it must be okay, right? Hey dead ravers, say hi to Cory Monteith for us.

    so according to some, the solution to fight stupidity it’s not to say “don’t do drugs” or “it’s your body, your health take care of them”, no, the solution is for the cops to give away water, paid by who? So in a way, we the taxpayers should pay for the immense stupidity of people whose lack of responsibility is so blatant that makes them kill themselves by abusing drugs just to see a concert…it’s sad, pathetic…

    • Let’em Crash

      Try being educated everything illegal is dangerous and can ruin your life or worse. Then, someone passes the doobie and they experience nothing that was taught to them. The lie is shattered and now more harmful chemicals are held to the same respect as a plant. DARE is not helpful in this regard.

    Sad day for EDM… as a trance loving conservative, I hate seeing this stuff happen. The ignorant old man comments on here are typical. Ironically, you are making snide comments about pple that are your kids age (teens, college age). I am older..but I still love this genre of music. We can thank the leftist for promoting drug use for the last 50 yrs. Music is drug enough for me.

  • Synth Esize

    No, MDMA/Molly DOESN’T kill. Stupid people taking too many drugs is what kills. Or dealers putting whatever they want in it. Moral of the story? Know and trust who you get your drugs from. #silkroad #erowid

      Better moral of the story- don’t do drugs.

      • Bumr50

        Almost everybody “does drugs.”

        • VL123

          I don’t. Not illegally.

          • GaryTheBrave

            Bumr50 will probably claim that everything you eat is/are drugs or if you take vitamins that is a form of drugs.

          • Bumr50

            Alcohol IS a drug.

            It’s not a “false equivalency” to compare the two, and ascribing the term “drugs” to only the “illegal” ones is not only inaccurate but dangerously naive.

            Sorry, but I break with many other repubs on this issue.

            Are you saying that the “War on Drugs” ISN’T a gross, unconstitutional failure?

            Tell that to the prisoners facing more hard time for some weed than the guy trafficking prescription pills because of the DEA’s IDIOTIC “scheduling” system.

            Alcohol is also more physically and mentally deleterious than many illegal drugs.

            So what’s the difference?

            The government, in it’s “great benevolence,” ALLOWS us peons alcohol because they’ve got a boot on the neck of the industry along with all the tax revenue.

          • GaryTheBrave

            The War on Drugs is an utter failure, as are most pogroms to control our behaviors. Why are our prisons so crowded? Legislators keep making laws. Get rid of the laws on most drugs and you reduce prison populations.

            I haven’t had my coffee yet but it seems like you want to eliminate the laws that bans psychosomatic drugs but ban alcohol.

          • Bumr50

            Absolutely not.

            I’ve been known to enjoy IPA’s.

            I just have a thing about people who consume or tolerate alcohol lumping all “illegal” drugs together as a giant collage of “BAD” that’s been determined by the government.

            All drugs are different.

            I simply can’t abide the hypocrisy.

            I want a COMPLETE revamp and refocus.

            “Open borders” (whatever that means) are a massive pipeline for cocaine, heroin, meth, and other drugs that require significant processing or outright theft to manufacture here.

            Our streets here in Pittsburgh are FLOODED with cheap heroin, and it’s almost ALL from Afghanistan or Mexico.

          • ald

            So you do show some individualistic signs, but to be a true individualist you must break completely from group thinking, you must break from the collective thinking of the tea party and or the Republican party, anything less than a clean break would be a pure form of collectivism….unless of course the views of these groups were purely yours, in other words you created the views and opinions of the right wing, Tea Party etc etc, you see, following opinions of political groups web sites etc etc, can in NO way be construed as individualistic, and even less so when there is no regard for the truth, as is the case with articles written for the sole purpose of inflaming you ….

            A true individualist, (if there is such a thing) would turn every rock to find the truth, not simply except something from a source they ‘consider’ to be reliable….again, anything less is collectivism…..

          • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

            A true individualist would have to reinvent the wheel every day and where’s teh sense in that?

          • ald

            That was my point, I just chose to express it in a very long drawn out manor……my bigger point was intended to show how most people are collectivists a perfect example would be the Tea Party who are virtually lock step in their collective views….I find it humorous that most Tea Partiers refer to themselves as individualists without knowing the true meaning of the word….

          • Bumr50

            And how are my views collective?

            Merely because others share some of them?

            Is that how you define “collectivism”?

            Get a dictionary.

            I’m an individualist from purely the standpoint of public policy and a government’s relationship with it’s citizens.

            If I CHOOSE to affiliate myself with one group or another it’s purely a choice made by me, the individual, and my association can be revoked at any time by ME.

            Your over inflated sense of intellectual superiority keeps trying to lecture me into a box that only exists in YOUR mind.

          • ald

            How are your views not collective? what view of yours is original?

            The Tea Party for example is a collective organization, they have weekly meetings and ‘collectively’ decide on events,marches,candidates to support etc etc…..the people in the meetings may believe they are acting independently, but nothing could be further from the truth, after all, ‘collective’ agreement is essential for the success of the group…

            btw, repeating a story written by a blog author without independently verifying its validity is not at all acting in a individualistic way….that brings me to my question…..do you have the facebook posting that backs up your authors assertion that the murders were revenge for Trayvon’s murder, or do you simply take the author at his word and operate on blind collective faith?

          • Bumr50

            I never said that those murders were “for Trayvon.”

            I said that they’ve been racially motivated.

            In the case near me, they called her ‘whitey’ repeatedly while they beat her.

            If I beat on a black man at the age of 15 repeatedly screaming “ni**er!!”, you wouldn’t consider that racially motivated?

            I HATE “hate crime” legislation, but the police here have some sack and are actually charging the little vermin with “ethnic intimidation.”

            I hope they’re tried as adults.

            And you’re failing to separate EVERY “collective” action from the social and political philosophy of “collectivism.”

          • ald

            I have said before….there are race ‘hate crimes’ committed on all races…whites on black, black on white, white on Hispanic, black on Hispanic, Christian on Muslim, Muslin on Christian etc etc….

            The problem I have with right wing media is their blatant attempt at making any and all crime committed by blacks on whites to be racially motivated, and it just is NOT true, they are race baiting, and you are buying it, they are creating hate and anger where non should exist, they are making you fearful of African Americans, when in reality you shouldn’t be… they are making hate fashionable, they are making it ok for you to say you don’t trust an African American, or you wouldn’t offer him or her a job….they are creating divide when e should be finding ways to get along….yes, race crime exists, but when crime is crime, let’s just call it what it is and STOP trying to turn every crime into a race crime…do you see my point?

          • Bumr50

            I see your point, but they’re NOT turning EVERY black on white crime into a race crime.

            It’s simply not ALL about race.

            What we’re (well, me and most others) pointing out is the double standard in Old Media coverage when dealing with those situations. In many of them, they’re afraid to identify the race of BLACK suspects, even when those suspects are still at large, whereas when a WHITE person attacks or kills a BLACK person, racism is almost ALWAYS implicated.

            I have NO hate or anger towards “black people” or any other ethnic group by race alone.

            There is a CULTURE among URBAN African-Americans (knockout game, gang initiation, straight up robbery) that’s increasingly anti-white.

            I can’t just ignore that. I absolutely don’t espouse the idea that ALL African-Americans are involved with this culture, just like I can’t ignore that MANY (but not all) followers of Islam worldwide believe in Sharia ideology, which makes it wholly incompatible with a free society.

            I’m not going to willfully blind myself to direct observations of behaviors and statements that are clearly WRONG just because those who hold those views belong to some “class” of people that sociology professors think that we have a duty to.

            Groupism is antithetical to America.

          • Bumr50

            So, me pointing out that the race of the suspects (NOT mentioned in the piece) happens to be African-American is a form of “race-baiting”?

            OK. A little bit guilty, I suppose.

            But why on earth are you focusing on me when 99% of the “race-baiting” over the past twenty years has come from “black leaders” and “black organizations”?

            It seems to me that their examples are far more grandiose and frequent that my little bit of anger at a double-standard doesn’t hold a candle to Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, or even TooRay or Melissa Harris-Perry.

          • ald

            Ok…..firstly, the civil rights movement and it’s leaders are a direct response to abusive behavior toward African Americans, I am certain you agree that we have a long and storied history of not dealing well with the rights of minorities, be it black, Hispanic, gay etc etc….50 years is not that long ago, and yes, we still have have a long way to go…..

            You may not believe that African American’s continue to need advocates speaking on their behalf, but what if it were you who was repeatably pulled over simple due your skin color, or if it were you stopped while walking down a city street minding your own business, you being turned down job after job, you being accused of a crime you didn’t commit? would you want an advocate speaking on your behalf trying to change the culture? I know I would…..

            I know the right wing view….they believe that blacks are not discriminated against (or only moderately discriminated) … they believed that advocates are not needed and that they exist simply to trump up charges that do not exist, but the fact is, they do exist, I, like you, wish there was NO need for advocates, I wish there were NO racism, but there is….

            That leads me to my final point……by right wing media involving itself in a form of reverse racism, they are doing what they claim to detest….If a ‘hate’ crime is committed against a white person, the people involved should be punished to the fullest extend of the law, and that would go the same for any and ALL ‘hate’ crime…..if the media right or left singles out those crimes by race, and try’s to claim ownership by one group or another of all hate, or the majority, they would be involving themselves in a form of race baiting….

            The first step to eliminating racism is to STOP blaming one another, stop creating fear and loathing where non should exist…. just because you don’t like the message coming from a minority advocacy group, doesn’t mean that it isn’t true, and it doesn’t mean you have to return the volley, how will it ever stop??

            btw, I am a white 52 year old male, who is blessed to have friends from all races and cultures, many Muslim friends as well, you don’t know how hard it is for me to hear the hatred toward people coming from sites like this about people I call friends…..I will keep up the fight until I spend my last breath….

    Holes in your brain. That’s all I remember about ecstasy from high-school anti-drug lectures. Ecstasy puts literal holes in your brain. What more do you need to remember? How it ever earned appeal outside of the fringes of the club scene is a question answered by the ignorance and irresponsibility flaunted by today’s pop-culture icons which has resulted in a corrupted youth.

    • tilligan

      The fact is there is zero evidence for the “holes in your brain theory” and when kids realize they have just been fed misinformation they go to the opposite extreme and act as if it is the safest things in the world. Clean mdma enjoyed in a safe manner is no more harmful then a number of prescription drugs prescribed everyday but those enjoying it need to understand the risks and side effects, which is why honestly cops handing out water bottles and information sheets letting kids know to stay hydrated and come forward and get help if they are not feeling well is preferential to kids dying in my opinion. I could go on and on but in the end I think proper education and prevention are what will keep people safe because humans have always enjoyed drugs and trends show that is not stopping anytime soon.

      Also just a point that I feel needs to be brought up it is entirely plausible that a very significant percentage of people at this event, and quite possibly those who died, ingested methylone mda or a number of other drugs that get passed off as mdma because there really is no reliable way for the average consumer to be sure of what they are ingesting due to the illegality of the drug.

      • Let’em Crash

        A visit to the DANCESAFE table and a few drops of the Marquis reagent can quickly determine if that illicit substance one is about to ingest is not something more harmful. Harm reduction isn’t failsafe, but a good tool: methylone = yellow, MDMA = black, then cough syrup, PMA, amphetamine also have different reactions.

    • Missv

      Long term scientific studies have shown that MDMA can prove therapeutic to those who are suffering from PTSD and other anxiety disorders. The problem isn’t JUST the drug. There are so many other factors at play. These kids probably got it from a friend of a friend who got it from some person who cut it with all kinds of horrible stuff. Oftentimes what they think is pure MDMA, is a cocktail of MDMA, meth, coke, or other chemicals/drugs. Sometimes what these people are buying doesn’t even have MDMA in it.
      Another factor could have been that they weren’t being mindful (i.e. they were also consuming alcohol, weren’t staying hydrated, etc.) If you’re going to do it, it’s all about being safe, educated, and ultimately knowing your body and limits. People are always going to find a reason to do some sort of drug, drink, etc. It’s all about being aware and being educated.

    • Synth Esize

      MDMA doesn’t cause “holes” in your brain. Those studies were done by the government and/or were biased. They didn’t take into account if the people being tested have ever tried crystal meth because THAT’S what actually puts holes in your brain. And sometimes speed is sold as ecstasy.

      Personal Responsibility is key here.

      The decision of shutting down an entire music festival for the actions of 2 separate individuals portrays an admission of guilt from the promoters of the event.

      If that is the decision, and it is because you are truly concerned for the health and well being of the people attending your event, then you are out of business.

        I’m saying our drug laws are both excessive and largely stupid.

        And I can’t STAND people looking at alcohol as though it were somehow different. Some of the very same people RAIL against the evils of marijuana.

        You can have that attitude, but try and sell it TO me or AROUND me.

    “free” water…

    WTH has happened to this country? To this world? What a sad sorry disgusting time we are living in.

    • $18912735

      To elaborate on my point – this POS drug head PAID FOR A TICKET TO THE EVENT. And now he/it wants taxpayers to give them FREE WATER in anticipation of their drug-fueled revelry.

      A – THE PEOPLE WHO TOOK YOUR MONEY TO PUT ON THE EVENT SHOULD GIVE YOU WATER, NOT THE TAXPAYER YOU GOD FORSAKEN MORONIC P. O. S.

      B – DO DRUGS AT YOUR OWN RISK. If you die from them, TOO FREAKING BAD. That is simply Darwinism at work. Anything that removes idiots from the gene pool is fine by me.

        Your complete lack of empathy for your fellow man is what’s wrong with the world today. I wish you nothing but the best but that was cold.

        • $18912735

          “(L)ack of empathy for [my] fellow man”, because he wants to chose to do dangerous (and by the way, illegal) drugs, but wants me to pay for “cops” to distribute “free” water in order to facilitate his drug fueled revelry?

          THAT is what is wrong with this world? That I might expect someone to take personal responsibility for their actions, instead of demanding that other people act as their proxy parent for their entire life?

          THAT is what is wrong with this world?

          So, the rapes, murders, genocide, general animosity and sometimes violence toward other people because of their religious beliefs or ethnicity – those are all “cool”. But someone daring to expect that a human being takes a modicum of self responsibility is “what is wrong with the world today”.

          Sure OK, if you say so. I guess…

      • ezoodude

        I was at ezoo on sat. they had super awesome free water refilling stations everywhere that were manned by event staff. 2 hoses in each hand. u had to only buy 1 bottle for $4. so yes FRE water is not a ridiculous thing to expect at an EDM concert

          Mother Theresa committed her life to helping people less fortunate, the extreme poor. The kind of people who couldn’t afford shoes, basic healthcare, and food, much less $100 tickets to a music festival.

          I doubt she would have felt compelled to buy water for some rich kids so that they could do drugs and party to electronic music at a music festival. I could be wrong, of course, but methinks she had bigger concerns.

      Do club promoters still shut off the bathroom faucets then charge $9 for Arrowhead bottles?

  • Oh boy

    People should be taught how to be responsible even when being “irresponsible”. Testing the product and drinking a lot of water before would have prevented any deaths or injury. Roll responsibly and ezoo could have been on today. Drugs can heighten an already fantastic experience but not being informed about misuse is what leads to tragedy :(

    Jim Remsik was making the case that in Seattle, the Seattle Police Department passed out Nacho Cheese Doritos during Hempfest a few weeks ago which included a sticker to explain WA pot laws. Police pushing drug use….SMH

    • Jim Wafwot

      I wouldn’t say the SPD was pushing or promoting drug use. They realized people at Hempfest were going to smoke weed no matter what, like they have at every Hempfest. The sticker on the Doritos bag (paid for by the Seattle Police Foundation, not tax payers) simply helped the ‘Fest attendees stay legal.

    its pma, after mdma was made illegal drug dealers started to create
    cheaper mdma knockoff chemicals which are far cheaper to produce and
    easier to make(because the precursors chemical to create pma is not
    regulated unlike safrole the precursors chemical to mdma which is heavily regulated and is illegal to possess)
    and pma being the culprit in almost every single case of “mdma”
    overdose, to overdose on mdma you need about 50 times the amount you
    need to get high, for pma a dose only 10% prectange higher then the
    amount you need to get high from is lethal , for mdma its 5000% higher
    and before you go blaming my awful spelling on drug use il let you know
    im icelandic and not a native english speaker so thats why.

    If we pass more stringent drug laws, the problem will be solved, just like more gun laws will stop murders.

    The machine behind the media that promotes molly WANT this to happen, you know. It’s not just entertainment. Liberals like to paint all rich people as evil, but the fact of the matter is it is the very rich people who’s entertainment they devour that promote these destructive “ideals” like drugs, abortion, homosexuality, general stupidity, because they don’t WANT these people to remain alive or continue their line with offspring. That’s the entire point and they’re playing right into it.

    This is why whenever I go out to party I go with friends and we never ever drink from a glass that has been out of our sight or take anything offered by strangers.

    My friends and I have low tolerance thresholds for drugs because we don’t do them! Some people don’t understand that, even scoff at it, but it makes us way more vulnerable to the idiots who think its funny to hand you something that will “blow your mind”. It really will blow your mind, people.

    It’s fine to do drugs especially since that’s what the scene is/has become but it’s not to be sheep about it. Just gotta figure out how much you can have based on you, not friends or celebs. Can we not cancel whole concerts because of people like this? My condolences, it’s still a sad happening.

    Its not molly if its not mdma(and its really hard to OD on mdma), Cathinones kill, I am dead fucking tired of all of this misinformation.

  • Molly

    I really don’t like the name Molly for a drug. Seriously. My name is Molly and it’s not fun to see headlines like “Molly kills”.

  • Joseph

    This is very disappointing. Young teens are dying for using this drug. People taking drugs should be ashamed of themselves. They should know the consequences of taking these drugs and what it does to them. What happens if you lose your friend, boyfriend or girlfriend who has been your best friend, just passed away using molly. If any one are taking drugs, think again. If you die, there is no coming back and HELL is a very real place. For those who don’t believe it, I am not going to judge you, but HELL is a very torturous place and the demons will torture you with everything they have. There is more pain than on earth. Just believe in the lord and he will save you like he saved me from being tormented for eternal life. I don’t want young people being killed from MOLLY or any drug and have eternal life in HELL.

  • irishgirl91

    I loved the one that pointed out that music and people were not enough to have a good time for some people. There have always been people that need some sort of chemical help to have a “good time”, there are now just more easily obtained methods to kill them off.

  • 1bestdog

    It was a hot and very muggy day in NYC that day. The drug makes you over heated and speeds up your heart. People hear that dehydration is the killer so they often OVERDRINK and one of the effects of the drug is it retains water, so ironically the cause of death (organ shut down) is often water intoxication. Hey record producers/companies who profit from Madonna and Miley Cyrus’s odes to “Molly.” You washing your hands yet? Cuz they got blood on them.

  • AZWarrior

    I am surprised that the current administration is not feverishly writing “rules” requiring that illegal drugs be labeled as to their potency and ingredients. That is their answer for every problem it seems. Or they could just fund another study.

  • Lex

    Its not mdma people are overdosing from, its nearly impoissbul to overdose on it,

    Almost every single death from overdose on “estascy” has been from a knockoff drug called pma and the reason pma even exists is because mdma is illegal.

    Mdma is a expensive drug to make and the precurosr chemical safrole is higly reglulated by the fda, so dubious chemists started to make knockoff drugs of mdma to make more money, pma which is similar to mdma high is far cheaper to make and the precurosrs to make it is not at all regulated making it very lucartive and a way to make a quick buck on the expense of other people lives.

    To overdose from mdma you need a dose 50times higher then what people take to get high(recritoanla dose) thats 5000% higher dose then what people normaly use, the dose to die from pma is only 10% higher then the dose needed to get high and for many people its even lower, two pills that contain pma will put you in the ground.

    if mdma was sold in stores this would not happened. and english is not my native so sorry for bad english

    and also dont forget that war on drugs is communistic in nature, the prohobiton movement was started by far left workers groups who viewed alcohol as a danger to the proletariat and was called the temperment movement,

    Karl Marx,Stalin,Mao and Lenin were all huge drug prohobotionsts and alcohol prohobnists.

    In europe the supproters of the war on drugs is the far left.

    Example in iceland the most supportive party of the war on drugs is the left green party, in Iceland there are two extreme leftwing parties , when the workers party(a stanlist party in favor of east germany) split up , two parties were created the soclaist democrats and the ones who wanted to go farther to the left then the workers party when to the left green.

    In uk the most far left senator George Galloway is one of the staunchest supporters of war on drugs
