ATLANTA, Ga. -- The Drug Enforcement Agency put out a warning about illegal drugs there at the electronic dance music festival in south Fulton County, TomorrowWorld. That warning focused on a designer drug called Molly.
WXIA investigative journalists Ross McLaughlin and Shawn Hoder went to the event, bought two tickets, and took a small camera along. They captured activity right out in the open.
DEA agents say Molly is a purer form of the designer drug ecstasy or MDMA. The problem is people overdose and many times the drug is cut with other dangerous substances.
Shawn Hoder asked one attendee, "Do you find that it's easy to get at a place like here?"
"Uh, very easy to get at a place like this. People walking around like hey I got Molly, I got Molly," he says on the undercover tape.
While no one would openly admit using, WXIA watched as people pulled baggies out of cigarette boxes and took substances out that weren't cigarettes.
However, someone did show us their drug testing kit make sure what they were getting was pure.
The signs said no drugs, bag searches were done and there was supposed to be an amnesty bin at the entrance to drop off contraband, without consequences.
