Molly Brings Agony, Not Ecstacy
Two attendees at the Electric Zoo Festival on Randall’s Island died this past weekend after taking the illegal drug called Molly.
Formerly called Ecstasy, Molly’s popularity is on the rise, as are its risks. There were more than 20,000 Molly-related emergency department visits in 2011, compared to just over 10,000 for 2004, according to the Drug Abuse Warning Network.

So-called “IV vitamin therapy,” one of the latest celebrity health fads, has little scientific evidence to support its use and benefits.

Adelphi University’s Ephemeralexhibition of artwork curated by professor Carson Fox has been named an Arts Alive LI Classic Event by the Long Island Arts Alliance. Artists Christian Boltanski, Oscar Munoz, Mary Temple, Cal Lane, Portia Munson, Mac Premo, Ariana Page Russell, Joe Mangrum, Sarah Heinemann, and Cara Lynch comprise Ephemeral; an exhibition that examines the human relationship with the transitory. Using materials that range from skin, sand, chalk, and earth, artists investigate the role of human experience, memory, and mortality in our lives, while raising questions about our expectations of the art object, our experience as viewers, and the function of creation.
