A clip from the BBC. They obviously wanted to find an example of how dangerous MDMA can be due to the recent debate, and this is the best they could do. Apparently she took half an ecstasy pill and felt really bad. "But it wasn't until several months later that the full damage became obvious. She collapsed and was taken straight to hospital." I think she had to get a liver transplant.
"A Kent girl who almost died after taking an ecstasy pill has spoken out against recommendations to reclassify ecstasy from a Class A to a Class B drug."
Is there any chance at all that MDMA can cause sudden damage to someone months after they take it? Did she even take MDMA? I highly doubt the pill, whatever it was, was anything to do with her collapsing. My two cents: She is a typical teenager that was drinking heavily and she may have had a weak liver or a totally unrelated condition, this is what caused it.
This is absolutely diabolical news reporting. Shame on you BBC :thumbsdown:
