About Ecstasy, Otherwise Known as MDMA
Methylendedioxymethylamphetamine (MDMA), also known as "ecstasy," "X," or "XTC," is known for increasing a sense of intimacy and diminishing anxiety, and can induce euphoria and mild psychedelia. Recreationally, ecstasy is known as a club drug and is frequently used at house parties, raves, and music festivals. People often take ecstasy with LSD, mushrooms and marijuana.
In the United States, ecstasy is a Schedule I drug, joining a class of drugs with no medical use and a high potential for abuse. Internationally, it is a Schedule I drug under the Convention of Psychotropic Substances.
