Where it Comes From
MDMA comes from china and the united states.
It depends how much of the drug you have with you. You could get a large fine or even jail time. 1 Gram of ecstasy (3 pills) is equal to 500 grams of marijuana. Being caught with just 200 grams can get you up to 6 years in jail. Being caught with a small amount is at most a year in jail plus a fine. However, the more times you're caught with it, the greater the fine becomes and the more jail time you serve.
The price of ecstasy and molly is around $8-$25 per dosage but when sold in larger quantities, it's around $80-$200 per gram.
