What are the effects on the users family

Children, young children especially, are easily affected by drug abusing parents. When a child's parents are abusing drugs openly it can push the child into viewing themselves as different. It might seem like a small thing, but feeling different from everybody else is one of the most common roads to depression, and depression kills more than drugs indirectly.

What are the effects on others around the users

The friends of a drug addict will often feel rejected as the drug abuser starts to stay at home taking drugs rather than going out with friends, this can lead to the friends feeling not only rejected, but it also puts them in a tricky situation. Friends are important and if a person is going to quit drugs – then they will need all of the support they can get!

This study aimed to determine whether these four modifiable risk factors could predict ecstasy use after controlling for socio-demographic covariates and recent polydrug use.

What is being done

The first line of defense is pill testing sites, which you can send a pill to for analysis; the site puts pictures and analysis results of the pills on-line. The advantage of this system is that if you have a pill of a certain color and logo you can look it up and see what similar pills contained or if you buy a batch of pills, you can send one in and find out specifically what's in that batch. The testing lab charges over $100 per pill

How much do the sellers make selling Ecstasy

Not Sure if this is true but 1 million dollars per month

Why People use ecstasy

Before MDMA was classified as an illegal substance, some psychotherapists experimented with the drug as a tool to help people explore their emotions. Today, some people continue to use the drug for emotional insight. Others use the drug to heighten their feelings of affection and empathy and connect with others. Still others use MDMA to have fun and stay active during a night out or at a party.
