1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.
    PLEASE HELP

    The link is wrong, it goes to the MDMA/PTSD article.

    Nice to see what appears to be a genuinely balanced article for a change.

    Really? I thought it was already well established that it will barely have any consequences if used sparingly, and certainly none if used only 'a few' times.

    Perhaps it depends on your definition of "high doses". If you take an overdose quantity of MDMA I wouldn't be surprised if it caused an obvious neurotoxic reaction.

    I think i read somewhere that 4.5g of mdma is the ld50 or something along those lines.

    I think it's more like 30mg/kg - there's mixed reports on this. It's around 80-100mg/kg in rats, the DEA claims that it's between 10-20m/kg in humans, other places claim anywhere between 30 and 100mg/kg in humans.
  5. Bajeda
    Keep in mind that the LD50 is an estimation of the dose that will kill half the people who take it, so it isn't the best way to gauge how much of something will kill you.
  6. fonogoodreason
    agreed, but it's extremely likely you will get an 'obvious toxic reaction'

    Could Ecstasy, LSD and magic mushrooms one day be legitimate prescription medicines? It sounds unlikely

    it always sounds like the opposite to me, whatever article i read
