CBS Boston stateing that EDM (Electronic Dance Music) is a nickname for molly
During a report by CBS’s Boston news station WBZ-TV, audiences learned that EDM is apparently a drug. An amused viewers ripped the video and brought it to Vine, sharing the moment the reporter mistakenly claims the drug molly is also known as MDMA or EDM.
EDM (electronic dance music) has grown in popularity in recent times and, while it is addicting, is certainly not a drug.
“Reporter Christina Hager was covering the fallout after 36 people were reportedly taken to hospital following an Avicii gig, when she dropped the clanger: ‘Part of that education is around the drug molly, also called MDMA or EDM,’” according to the Independent.
In a sad attempt to erase the moment from the minds of viewers, CBS attempted to get rid of the YouTube video. Alas, they were too late. Thanks to the power of ripping and re-uploading, the “EDM is MDMA” moment has been eternalized through Vine.
