The popular name for MDMA, which was discovered by US army in the early 20's but no real use for it was found, Andrew Shuglin rediscovered it in the mid 70's and popularized it. a drug which is commonly taken by clubbers/party goers. Typically comes in pill form bearing various designs or emblems to differentiate between the 'types' (though this is primarily a 'marketing' technique to rob the uneducated masses).
Can be taken orally, insufflated, injected or smoked, (also.. plugged), typically taken orally where effects typically last from 3-5 hours and user is often overwhelmed with a feeling of 'love and unity'. Unexperienced (or truly uninhibited) MDMA users tend to channel this energy into making out with whoever they stumble upon, very unsafe, and stupid.
Studies suggest ecstasy use causes damage to serotonin axons in the brain, via oxidization. (in the early stages of a comedown a chemical in your brain known as dopamine is broken down in a MAO (mono-amine oxidase) which creates some inert substances and H2o2 or.. hydrogen peroxide, or.. bleach). No hard data one way or the other though. MDMA is also linked to serotonin depletion or chemical depression.
Despite all these drawbacks.. its fun as hell :-P
