Someone contact Cedric Gervais, because molly was found at the Feinberg Fisher K-8 school in Miami Beach this afternoon. Two 14-year-old students were apparently experimenting with the drug and had to be rushed to the hospital after complaining about a rapid heartbeat.
NBC Miami reports that at least one person is being questioned in the incident.
The students apparently ingested the drug, a form of MDMA similar to Ecstasy, at the middle school, which is in the heart of South Beach, just off Washington Avenue. Both teens were conscious when they were taken to the hospital, but authorities suspect they might have overdosed.

An investigation is under way to determine how the youngsters obtained the drugs.
First of all, kids, don't do drugs. Second, if you don't know that your middle school algebra class is one of the worst places to drop molly, you probably shouldn't be experimenting with drugs in the first place.
