ATLANTA (AP) - Members of the Atlanta Police Department’s Narcotics Unit will be featured on an upcoming episode of a National Geographic Network show.

Department spokeswoman Elizabeth Espy says the unit will be featured on a Wednesday episode of the series “Drugs Inc.”

Espy says the episode will focus on the powdered form of the drug MDMA - known as “Molly” - which has become popular across the country. Authorities say the drug was once sold in pill form as Ecstasy and is promoted as being purer and additive-free.

Police say because demand for the drug has risen sharply, producers struggling to keep a steady supply have started introducing new and dangerous chemicals to it.
