How Much Does Ecstasy Cost?
Ecstasy, also called “molly” or MDMA, is an illicit, synthetic drug with a price that remains relatively stable due to the ability to manufacture ecstasy in large quantities.
There are multiple forms of ecstasy as a street drug, but a single dose costs approximately $20.
Cost Of Ecstasy By Measurement
The most common form of this recreational drug is in a pill or single-dose capsule, or “point” to be taken orally. MDMA can also be purchased by the gram or ounce.
Price Of An Ecstasy Pill
Ecstasy tablets, which range from 70 mg to 100 mg, cost between $15 to $25 each. People who use ecstasy will typically take multiple doses in a short period of time to reach their desired high.
Price Of A Point Of Ecstasy
Each 100 mg capsule of molly costs around $20 to $50.
Average Cost Of A Gram Of Ecstasy
Ecstasy can also be purchased in crystal or powder form. A gram of ecstasy in this form will sell for approximately $150.
Cost Of An Ounce Of Ecstasy
The average price of an ounce of ecstasy is between $1,800 to $3,000.
What Affects The Cost Of Ecstasy?
The price of ecstasy is relatively stable compared to other illicit drugs such as methamphetamine because it can be manufactured safely in very large amounts.
Other factors that can affect drug prices include:
- the quality of the drug
- availability of the product
- where it’s being sold
- local law enforcement
- purity of the MDMA
Oftentimes, dealers in metropolitan areas such as New York City will be in competition for more business — this typically results in the price of ecstasy being lower in cities.
Treatment Options For Substance Abuse
While ecstasy is not as addictive as other illegal drugs such as crystal meth, opioids, or crack cocaine, people can still develop a psychological dependency on the drug.
Regular use of ecstasy can alter the chemical messengers in the brain that produce feelings of happiness and pleasure. Over time, the brain may become reliant on MDMA to produce these chemicals.
Treatment services for ecstasy may include:
- inpatient treatment for drug abuse
- dual diagnosis treatment for mental health and substance use disorders
- intensive outpatient programs (IOP)
- group and individual therapy for drug addiction
