Ecstasy is usually taken orally in pill, tablet or capsule form. Taking more than one at a time is called “bumping.”

Ecstasy is a synthetic drug made in a laboratory. Makers may add anything they choose to the drug, such as caffeine, amphetamines and even cocaine. Ecstasy is illegal and has effects similar to hallucinogens and stimulants. It is addictive. The pills are of different colors and are sometimes marked with cartoon-like images. Mixing ecstasy with alcohol is extremely dangerous and can be lethal.

The stimulative effects of drugs like ecstasy enable the user to dance for long periods, and when combined with the hot, crowded conditions found at raves, can lead to extreme dehydration and heart or kidney failure.

Short-term Effects:

• impaired judgment
• false sense of affection
• confusion
• depression
• sleep problems
• severe anxiety
• paranoia
• drug craving
• muscle tension
• involuntary teeth clenching
• nausea
• blurred vision
• faintness and chills or sweating.

Long-term Effects:

• Prolonged use causes long-lasting and perhaps permanent damage to the brain, affecting the person’s judgment and thinking ability. Some young people have died after using ecstasy only once.

    I guess if you haven’t heard of it, it must not be true. Do a search for it on-line and you’ll see. For instance, check out http://www.streetdrugs.org/mdma.htm

    “MDMA (3,4-methylenedioxy-N-methylamphetamine), also referred to as Ecstasy, XTC, Adam, and Essence, is a illegally manufactured variation of mescaline and amphetamine. It is considered a designer drug—a substance on the drug market that is a chemical analogue or variation of another psychoactive drug.”

    … Ok so love is obviously the biggest!! And u cant beat natural highs. But unaturally, if u aren’t stupid with them and are aware of the possible side effects and use ‘responsibly’, you can have a very pleasant experience, whether walking in the park listening to your favourite song (yes it can act as a mood enhancer and you can be chilled on them: it’s not speed or cocaine) or partying with friends.
    There are negative effects, im not denying, the come-down can be very unpleasant, but if you plan accordingly (make sure u have a nice comfortable space to come back to, and a nice film or chill out music) you can soften the blow, and maybe even enjoy it: it’s not a hangover.
    I’m not telling anyone to do it, i’m simply offering the other side from someone who actually has EXPERIENCE, not someone who beleives everything they read in the media, or hasn’t had their own experience to make any sort of balanced opinion.
