I don’t know much about chemistry but I recently found the below bond-line structural formula painted on a wall near my place. I really can’t let go of trying to find the name of the compound. If anyone would be so inclined as to relieve me of my suffering, I sure would be grateful!

Thank you and greetings from Sweden!

    $\begingroup$ What a disappointment that genuine questions receive down votes and an illegal drug based query received positive reviews by random people. $\endgroup$ – M. Farooq Aug 3 '20 at 3:04
  • $\begingroup$ @M.Farooq It is a perfectly valid identification question and not obviously homework. And nothing about identifying the molecule is illegal (and the compound isn't even universally illegal). $\endgroup$ – matt_black Aug 4 '20 at 18:28

The full name of the compound is 3,4-methyl​enedioxy​methamphetamine, which is typically abbreviated as "MDMA". It is commonly used recreationally, and is casually referred to as "ecstasy", "molly", "E" and many other names.
