Teenagers ask questions about drugs
See what the answers are.
What is ecstasy?
Ecstasy is both a stimulant and a mild hallucinogen. Because ecstasy provides a surge of energy and supresses
thirst, it can raise body temperature and put a person at risk for seriously overheating their body (called
hyperthermia), especially when using ecstasy at a dance club or all-night dance party. Body temperatures
higher than 105o are a medical emergency and can cause death.
