I know that molly is pure mdma and e pills are mixed with other things, but is there a difference in the roll?

You don't know what's going to be mixed in with the drugs, so you don't know what the dangers of ingesting the drug will be. It is really playing a game of russian roulette both with your mind and potentially with your life. I would highly advise against it. Best wishes. ...Read more

Slleeping pills: Some sleeping pills in strong enough doses can do this. However if no reurrence in 10 yrs, I would put any concerns on the back burner.
