MDMA: The hippie drug By Adam Orla-Bukowski, Michael Peng, Phillip Yang, and Tino Mahoney Legal Consequences A person who is convicted of manufacturing or distributing 50 grams or more of EX may be sentenced to a prison sentence of 10 years to life and/or be required to pay a fine of up to $4 million

Possession of 5 grams or more of XTC carries a penalty of 5-40 years in prison. Dangers while high When using ecstasy, you put yourself in a psychedelic state, where you judgement is shot, and you have little to no awareness of your actions. This can lead to bad decisions, such as driving, or contracting STIs from unprotected intercourse. Scientific and Street Names Street names: Molly, Adam, X, ETC, EX Scientific name: Methylene Dioxymethamphetamine Bibliography http://alcoholism.about.com/od/ecstasy/ /ecstasy.html What does ecstasy look like? Ecstasy comes in powder or tablet form. MDMA has been central to the phenomenon of rave; symbolically, socially and pharmacologically. The dawn of acid house in 1988 saw an explosion of unlicensed raves and affordable ecstasy; it quickly became dubbed “the second summer of love”. Fun Facts The production of sassafras oil, which is the primary ingredient of MDMA, is causing serious ecological damage in South East Asia. Rare sassafras trees are chopped down, shredded and boiled in jungle labs in order to produce safrole-rich oil, which is processed further to create ecstasy. 1) Shouting really loudly about how amazing everything is
2) Being amazed by the smallest, most insignificant things e.g. soap, carpet, cigarette ends etc
3) Honestly believing that tonight is so amazing it is definitely a good idea to tell that girl who's way out of their league exactly how beautiful she is and then not being disappointed when they're told to sod off. MDMAmazing Effects of MDMA Anxiety

In 2007, over 12 million U.S. citizens had used MDMA at least once in their life, with about 7% of high school seniors in the nation having tried the drug. Now, there are over 14 million lifetime users. MDMA is taken orally, generally through a pill or tablet. Pure MDMA, which is found in crystal/powder form, can also be snorted or smoked, and very rarely, injected. MDMA can also be inserted anally. MDMA can be "bombed" by wrapping the powder in a napkin, then swallowing the napkin. Who uses MDMA? MDMA is most popular among white teens and young adults. Among these users, ranging from age 18-25, males were more likely to have taken ecstasy than females. In the U.S., more teens in the Northeast were likely to have used MDMA than youths in the Midwest or West. People living in metropolitan/urban areas were twice as likely to have used MDMA than those living in suburban or rural areas. And among both teens and young adults, whites were more likely to have taken ecstasy than Asians, Hispanics, blacks, and American Indians. Where is it used? How can you take it? Celebrities involved with the Drug Eminem takes half of an ecstasy pill before every stage performance to "loosen up". But no reports of him ever being arrested for it. Rapper T.I. has been convicted for possession. Amy Winehouse, has been convicted for snorting, smoking, and swallowing ecstasy (tablets). Lindsey Lohan has admitted to the press that she has taken ecstasy. http://www.drugabuse.gov/drugs-abuse/mdma-ecstasy http://www.thegooddrugsguide.com/articles/famous_users/ecstasy.htm http://www.ecstasy.ws/e-statistics.html
