  • I think at this point in time young folks aren’t worried about the consequences because there is so much information out there that most sources will tell you that MDMA is low risk but low risk =/= no risk so if anyone abuses it then they cultivate the consequences big or small.

    As far as it goes drugs have less stigma than they once did so kids will try anything now and if it hits psychologically fertile ground then they abuse it.

    What worries me is that the age group where it is used the most is at a point where the brain is still malleable compared to say age 35 and over so the risk-benefit analysis of choices aren’t as obvious as they are to older people. Kids probably feel invincible to an extent and while I’m sure a lot of 18-21 year olds will deduce that if you have 250mg pills you could split one between two people but there will always be that person that thinks a heroic dose is the way to go and oftentimes they become EMS’s problem, their friend’s responsibility to look out for, or they get into dealing to support the habit … etc etc.

    In that article the thing that stood out the most was the researcher saying that for many people the reward outweighs the risk. THAT is so good to hear from an unbiased source. I think academia could be the new voice for legalization.

    just been reading the Dutch news today and there are several articles about Dutch users switching from MDMA to 4-FA which has got the street name “xtc-lite” ; because the currently available MDMA pills are now way too strong!

    However 4-FA is not without risks in itself and has been implicated in adverse incidents at this years large music events… (govt is discussing making it a controlled substance in October)

    Also another article from Trimbos complaining that the online info about MDMA pills is often inaccurate and understates risks; though it also points out that Dutch law forbids the exact results of tests being discussed online (which is of course adds to the confusion!)

    Auch wenn du am Abgrund stehst, und gar nichts mehr verstehst,
    wachen Engel über dich, halten dich im Licht und lassen dich nie fallen.
