Boston police say they are concerned there may be a bad batch of the drug known as Molly being sold in the Northeast after multiple overdoses in Massachusetts and New York.
Three people overdosed on Molly - a pure form of ecstasy - at the House of Blues, including a college student from New Hampshire who died. Over the weekend, two other people apparently overdosed on the same drug at a concert in Boston. And in New York City, two people died and four others were hospitalized during a dance musical festival. The deaths appear to be linked to Molly, also known as MDMA.
Superintendent William Evans said Boston police know the House of Blues patrons bought their drugs before they got to the club from someone outside the city. He said police expect to make arrests.
