Ecstasy Side Effects

100% Pure MethylenedioxymethampethamineImage via WikipediaEcstasy Side Effects
Brain imaging research in humans indicate that Ecstasy causes injury to the brain, affecting neurons that use the chemical serotonin to communicate with other neurons. The serotonin system plays a direct role in regulating mood, aggression, sexual activity, sleep, and sensitivity to pain. Many of the side effects users face with Ecstasy use are similar to those found with the use of cocaine and amphetamines.
  • In July of  2000,  16 boxes  containing 2.1 million ecstasy pills, with a value of approximately $41 million, were taken by the US Customs Service at Los Angeles International Airport.
  • Medical reports and psychical examinations often  show that individuals who have taken ecstasy at least 25 times have decreased amounts of serotonin in their brain  for a period of a year after the last usage.
  • About 5.5% of  adults aged 19-22 years of age reported they have taken ecstasy this year.
  • Episodes in emergency rooms related with ecstasy grew all over the nation from 250 in 1994, to  to 2,850 in 1999.
  • The production of  MDMA tablets' is concentrated in Belgium and the Netherlands, but some groups have found secret MDMA laboratories in places like  Minneapolis, San Diego, and regions of Michigan and South Florida.
  • From the year 1999 to 2000, students who take MDMA have notably grown.  Last year the usage of MDMA grew from 1.7 percent in 1999 to 3.1 percent in 2000 among 8th grade students, from 4.4 percent to 5.4 percent among 10th grade students, from 5.6 percent to 8.2 percent among 12th grade students.
  • Last year ecstasy addicts  ranging in ages from 12 to 25  surveyed admitted to having  taken other illegal drugs.
