Police in Maryland have charged three people in connection with manufacturing MDMA, commonly referred to as Molly or the drug ecstasy, including a doctor who has a long-standing history of drug problems.
Baltimore County cops said a drug investigation led to a search warrant and the arrest of Dr. Priscilla Sheldon-Cost, 51, at a house in Towson.
Detectives found chemicals that can be used to manufacture MDMA and ecstasy were being created in a lab in the basement.
Some of the substances that were found had even been labelled with MDMA written on it.
'They found chemicals that, when mixed, can either be hazardous or used to make narcotics. They also found a lab that was active but not working. It was in production but not working at the time that they served the warrant.
They also found a large quantity of whats known as MDMA, also known as Molly - that quantity was sufficient enough to indicate distribution,' Baltimore County police spokesman Cpl. John Wacther said.
Dr. Priscilla W. Sheldon-Cost, 51, Thomas Ronald Joyave, 52, and Vincent Mark Ricker, 24, were charged with drug-related offenses.
Sheldon-Cost and Ricker are being held on $30,000 bail while Joyave was allowed go free on $20,000 bail.
Police Sheldon-Cost told investigators 'nothing was ever sold and that she was interested in psychedelics.'
She also told police she has a masters degree in psychology from Johns Hopkins and a PhD in pharmacology from Yale.
The Baltimore Sun reports that Sheldon-Cost was an addiction rehabilitation psychiatrist with a history of treatment for alcohol and drug abuse.
Sheldon-Cost previously worked at Baltimore Behavioral Health, a rehabilitation center for addicts in West Baltimore, while undergoing addiction treatment herself, under the supervision of the state Board of Physicians.

Combined DANG! and Maryland “Freak State” PING!
She just wanted a lifetime supply of MDMA
They should legalize it and TAX the hell out of it. The DemocRAT politicians would love that.
D’Oh! EIGHT SECONDS behind ya, LOL!
She just needed research subjects.
Breaking bad with worse?
It’s job security for the DEA, FBI, prison system, court system. Meanwhile, opium production is up in Afghanistan thanks to US troops protecting the poppy fields, the DEA works with the second biggest drug cartel in Mexico, the border is open to Mexican drug gangs, and big banks like HBSC pay less than a fraction of a penny on the dollar to launder drug money.
Keep the public distracted by making big news of a small time drug bust. The people have been totally f***ed by the government elites.
Or legalize it and DON’T tax the hell out of it, so that the government won’t be profiting from addiction, like they do with cigarettes.
Only hostage sits should have swat teams kicking in doors. The 4th protected us, until Carrie Nation and the highway to hell paving crew showed up.
Saw a photo of this cutie on FOX 45 Baltimore news last night. Yikes!
