Quote:One of the main targets in the war on drugs could well become a drug to treat the scars of war. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has designated 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA), better known as the illegal drug ecstasy, a "breakthrough therapy" for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a status that may lead to faster approval.

IIRC MDMA was shown to have potential treatment value but was Scheduled as whatever corresponds to "worthless & dangerous".

I do think we need more straight-edge advocates who are convinced by the data. For example met a guy who worked for NORML who stopped using weed recreationaly specifically b/c he felt it made him a stronger advocate.

Beyond that, the problem is the dealers cutting this stuff with trash b/c as noted by volunteer testers the cops don't mind them but dealers threaten violence:
