Their findings, published online July 10 in the Journal of Psychopharmacology, also revealed that pills purported to be a purer and safer version of the illegal stimulant drug MDMA known as Molly contained as many harmful additives as the version known as Ecstasy. And, unlike older analyses that found different results, the most common adulterants in this study were chemicals commonly known as "bath salts."

I wonder if George Ricaurte is involved in this (he of the "ecstasy causes brain damage" dubious report back in the 90s). Last I checked he still worked at Johns Hopkins and he was still studying the long-term effects of ecstasy on brain functions.

Not sure it's a good idea to cut it with something that can cause body temp to rise.
