(NECN) - There are concerns about the dangerous party drug “Molly” in Providence, R.I. and people attending an event Friday night at the Dunkin Donuts Center will see plenty of police.
     
Officers will be searching bags looking for the drug at the "Barstool Blackout Tour Foam Party".
     
They'll also remove impaired people from the event.
