I spend a lot of time in my day reading. Reading and searching. My escapades through the world of news usually brings me some strange, funny, interesting, noteworthy or important information. Starting this week, I will share my favorite weekly findings.
I call this my Weekly Weigh In. Every Thursday. Enjoy.
Ecstasy, if you didn't know, makes you feel really good. Things feel great, you smile a lot, most everything is funny and you feel really happy. Doesn't sound too dangerous, right? Understandably, in increased amounts, anything can be dangerous. The truly scary part is what each pill is 'cut' (mixed) with. MDMA in it's pure form is also called 'molly' and mostly comes in a powder form.
This test would be very interesting to watch. Part of the volunteer group is given MDMA while the other part is given a sugar pill. I think it would be interesting to see how people react to just the thought of having taken ecstasy.
This study is similar to that conducted in the United States called Your Body On Drugs. Hosted by Robin Williams, this study focuses on how the human body reacts to an array of drugs (weed, heroine, meth, cocaine etc). While I personally haven't seen it, I know it's now on my to watch list. Along with this new study airing this month.
I know the drug subject is a sensitive one but what are your thoughts about MDMA? Do you think, if harnessed properly, it should be able to help people with emotional disorders like depression or PTSD?
