Buffalo, N.Y. (WKBW) - A crusade to get the new party drug called Molly off the streets.

Buffalo police say a 17 year old girl was taken to Women and Children's Hospital after over dosing on the drug this past weekend at a house party on Minnesota Avenue.

Today US Senator Chuck Schumer was in town talking about his efforts to curb the abuse of the drug.

He has asked the federal High Intensity Drug Authority to focus on Molly in Western New York.

He's also taken a step to get a new law passed to ban all Molly like drugs.
