    November 28,  2008 - A popular drug that once ruled the South Florida rave and pop dance club scenes is making a menacing comeback, ending a five-year lull.

    Local police say they've come across more Ecstasy pills on the street lately, and more often than not they're laced with methamphetamine.

    The added ingredient turns Ecstasy from a mellow stimulant — and so-called "happy drug"— to one with the potential to deliver jolting, heart-racing effects.

    "Many people who are taking it aren't aware the pills are laced with methamphetamine," said Fort Lauderdale Is your Fort Lauderdale restaurant clean? - Click Here. Police Sgt. Frank Sousa.

    Adverse Effects of Street Drug 'Ecstasy'

    November 14,  2008 - ...According to the U.S. Department of State, the short-term negative effects of ecstasy can be nausea, dilated pupils, dry mouth and throat, and lower jaw tension. Use of the drug often leads to dramatic increases in body temperature exceeding 100 degrees Fahrenheit, which in turn can lead to muscle breakdown and kidney and cardiovascular system failure. This hyperthermic response can therefore result in fatal blood clotting, heart attacks and strokes.

    Scientific studies have found that ecstasy use also produces long-term damage to the brain’s ability to release serotonin, which regulates mood, body temperature and memory.

    “Ecstasy may be the only amphetamine-based drug that attacks the serotonin system,” says Monks. “There is little doubt that it has the potential to be toxic to the human nervous system. The question is how.”

    October 11,  2008 - There could be deaths if bogus Ecstasy tablets circulating in Canberra turn out to be the illegal designer drug PMA (Synthetic hallucinogen. Chemically: paramethoxyamphetamine), a leading drug expert warns.

    The warning comes after a 24-year-old man was admitted to hospital after taking a potentially lethal drug he believed was Ecstasy.

    He was in a serious condition at Canberra Hospital yesterday.

    Drug and Alcohol Research and Training Australia director Paul Dillon said because it was impossible to tell what was in Ecstasy pills, users ran the risk of taking the deadly drug PMA instead. ''People don't actually call [Ecstasy pills], 'Ecstasy' any more; most users call them 'pills' because they really don't know what's in them,'' he said.

    October 11,  2008 - According to Professor Laws from the University’s School of Psychology, taking the drug just once can damage memory. In a talk entitled "Can taking ecstasy once damage your memory?", he will reveal that ecstasy users show significantly impaired memory when compared to non-ecstasy users and that the amount of ecstasy consumed is largely irrelevant. Indeed, taking the drug even just once may cause significant short and long-term memory loss. Professor Laws findings are based on the largest analysis of memory data derived from 26 studies of 600 ecstasy users.

    September 15,  2008 - The latest research on the wide-ranging health effects of taking 3, 4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA), commonly known as ecstasy, will be discussed by researchers from across the globe at Swinburne University this week.

    The ‘Psychobiology of MDMA or Ecstasy’ conference has been organised by Professor Andy Parrott, an international authority on the human psychobiology of MDMA from Swansea University in the UK. He is currently a visiting professor at Swinburne.

    Ecstasy is an illegal synthetic drug – a powerful stimulant with immediate euphoriant effects. However this euphoria is typically followed by feelings of tiredness and depression during the subsequent period of nervous system recovery.

    “When used regularly, ecstasy can lead to a range of problems, including memory deficits, impaired sleep, reduced problem solving ability, and reduced social intelligence,” Parrott said.

    August 14, 2008 - OKLAHOMA CITY — Use of the designer drug ecstasy has declined in recent years, but Oklahoma City police say they're concerned about its spread from the suburbs to the inner city.

    The illegal drug "X," an amphetamine that triggers the pleasure chemical serotonin in the brain, has penetrated into nearly all neighborhoods, police said.

    "Four years ago, I would have said we had a heck of a problem" with ecstasy, Oklahoma City police Lt. Tom Terhune said. "It's still out there and it's still available. The demand for it is not what it used to be."

    While officers are arresting dealers with smaller quantities, the dealers are a more diverse population.

    Youth access to drugs increases
    Teens can now get marijuana and prescription drugs
    more easily than last year. But drug usage is not up.

    By: Uri Friedman
    Christian Science Monitor


    August 14, 2008 - Excerpt:  For example, teen Ecstasy use increased dramatically at the beginning of this decade because young people viewed the pills as safe and saw few social consequences to taking "the hug drug." But news of Ecstasy-related deaths and a national campaign, launched in 2001, helped reduce usage by ratcheting up perception of risk and social disapproval, says Mr. Pasierb.

    August 12, 2008 - Excerpt:  The ecstasy powder was stored in a pink plastic tub with a Bratz sticker on it. Bratz is a well-known children's doll franchise. Police would not say if any kids lived in the house.

    Officers also found 237 ecstasy tablets (estimated value of $3,500), 21 grams of powder cocaine ($1,700), 9.5 kg of benzocaine ($24,000) a cutting agent used in the production of cocaine, six grams of pot ($100), cellphones and an undisclosed amount of cash.

    One of the more unusual items police showed off yesterday was an empty can of puncture sealant, which has a false bottom that unscrews and was used to hide drugs or money, police said.

    In recent months, city police have warned more ecstasy pills or capsules are turning up with traces of methamphetamine.
