Meagan Good, Christian actress and star of the new NBC drama "Deception," recently sparked a debate after speaking out against the drug commonly known as Molly.

Molly, the pure powder or crystal form of MDMA that is known for causing an euphoric effect, has been made popular in rap songs like Kanye West's "Mercy" and Trinidad James' "All Gold Everything." However, 31-year-old Good is not happy with the rise of the drug's popularity.

"Popped da Molly, I got permanent psychosis, irreversible sexual dysfunction and brain bleeding WHOO," Good tweeted Thursday, changing the lyrics to James' song that has seemingly increased the drug's popularity.

While many seemed critical of Good speaking out against the drug, one person chastised her for speaking out against Molly while being a cigarette smoker.

"Put up a tweet of the side effects of cigs you smoke," the person told Good on Twitter.

The actress did not hesitate to respond, explaining the difference between her smoking and people promoting the use of Molly.

"That's actually a good idea But the difference is I'm not promoting/ glorifying something that's bad for you .. I'm actively quitting," she responded.

While Good faced some criticism, she also gained supporters after speaking out against the drug in front of over 400,000 fans on Twitter.

"Don't feed into them! They should be thanking you for educating them," another person tweeted Good. "I guess I'm lame too. God's children aren't meant to FIT IN!"

Good responded to the Twitter user by saying, "Amen."

James, known for his lyric "pop a Molly, I'm sweating WHOO!" spoke to MTV's Rap Fix Live about being blamed for the rise in Molly's popularity last month.

"All the people are like, 'I don't know what it is, but every time I hear the song, I just wanna do it,' " James, 25, told MTV. "That's a terrible excuse, but go 'head, get high, go 'head. Blame Trinidad, blame it on me."
