BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) - Senator Chuck Schumer is calling for a crackdown on Molly, a designer drug that's gaining popularity among those in high school and college.

Already 4 people across the country, including one in Rochester, have died from overdosing.

That's why Senator Schumer is calling for a law that would increase enforcement and make it harder to manufacture and obtain molly.

Molly short for molecule is especially prevalent in the electronic dance music scene.

Experts say the pill is often laced with toxic ingredients like fertilizer, amonia, and other drugs like bath salts, making it extremely dangerous and potentially lethal.

Experts say the best thing you can do is talk to your child about the dangers of this drug.
