Ecstasy does not wreck the mind

A Harvard Medical School study designed to address the shortcomings of earlier research was unable to detect any long term negative effects in MDMA users.  The main difference in the new study was that both the control and user populations were all-night ravers — some straightedge, and some not, and the ones using, using only MDMA.  The results suggest that previous studies were observing the negative effects of all-night dancing, dehydration and sleep deprivation… not MDMA!  Full article hidden behind a paywall… until PubMed gets it in 6 months.
