Ecstasy: The Big Lie

Today, the use of Ecstasy is growing faster than any other illegal drug in the United States. The rise of Ecstasy has been compared to the rise of cocaine in the 1970s and 80s. At that time, cocaine was relatively unknown. People believed cocaine was a "fun, harmless" drug. Within a few years, cocaine caused nearly epidemic devastation through addiction.

Ecstasy is in a similar position today because it is less understood than other drugs. Users tend to think Ecstasy is "harmless fun," but it does pose serious health risks. Researchers are learning more all of the time about the damage Ecstasy causes. What is already known about Ecstasy, including the brain damage and fatalities it causes, is not pretty.
