OBJECTIVE--The current study examined event-level characteristics (e.g., contextual factors, risk behaviors) during the most recent episode of Molly use among a sample of college students who reported previously using Molly.
PARTICIPANTS--Participants (N = 151; 66.7% female) were drinkers aged 18 to 25. Data were collected from October to November 2014, February to April 2015, and September to November 2015.
METHOD--Participants completed measures regarding typical Molly use and items related to context and behaviors during their most recent episode of Molly use.
RESULTS--Findings revealed that our sample most commonly reported using Molly earlier in the evening while hanging out with friends or at a party. Additionally, sexual and other drug use behaviors commonly occurred when using Molly.
CONCLUSIONS--Findings provide preliminary information in guiding future work exploring Molly use and potential substance-related issues associated with the context of when and how Molly is consumed.
