Watch MTV's New Show: 'True Life: I'm Addicted to Molly'


UPDATE: The debut episode of "True Life: I'm Addicted to Molly" has aired on MTV. The episode follows two girls, Paige and Ally, and their addiction to the drug "Molly." Watch below:

 Ahhhh MTV...You've really outdone yourselves this time. Best known for their turn away from classic music videos and music news broadcasting to reality shows exploiting and glorifying prevelant young adult issues, this music television station might be making an even bigger mistake with their next big thing- "True Life: I'm Addicted to Molly."

The media loves Molly and its controversial storyline, but is MTV really going to try to make a profit out of this in order to better "connect" with its target demographic? FYI MTV execs, you're a little late on hopping on the MDMA craze, which really started heating up last year when two teens lost their lives at Electric Zoo from apparent overdose (of a mix of various compounds and metholone, a drug often confused for MDMA and sold as its identical twin), and has since simmered down a little. Of course the problem still exists and will continue to unless drug safety education better emerges, but why glorify that which we already know is wrong and validate the negative stereotype of EDM fans? 

Official casting call that MTV posted:

TRUE LIFE: I’M ADDICTED TO MOLLY

Do you take Molly — the powdered form of MDMA — so often that it feels like you can’t have a good time without it?  Is it affecting your ability to function during the day? Is your Molly use no longer confined to the occasional party and starting to become more serious?

If you appear between the ages of 18-28 and think you are addicted to Molly, we want to hear your story. Email us at molly@mtv.com. Please be sure to include your name, location, telephone number, a recent photo and a brief description of your situation
