Katie Couric invites MDMA expert Dr. Julie Holland and former FBI agent Brad Garrett to clarify information about the emerging drug Molly, focusing on how it is not a pure version of MDMA while explaining the risks associated with taking an unknown substance from the streets. Holland explains the therapeutic value of MDMA, noting, “In its pure form, with a doctor supervising, you can give it to somebody. There’s a study with posttraumatic stress disorder where they’re giving MDMA to veterans.” Holland adds, “In that setting, it’s fairly safe, and there may even be some benefit.”
