I don't live in the UK so I won't be watching it live. It's on Channel 4 and it's a two part series on the drug Ecstacy. Yesterday they had a debate on the subject, tonight they have two people taking it on live television for an hour or two. Here's a Vice article about the show they did yesterday:
"Well, the votes are in, and the count's findings are conclusive: Britain loves ecstasy. The party drug was the real winner last night on Drugs Live, a UK game show where a soldier named Phil, a lady priest named Hayley, and stern-faced We Need to Talk About Kevin writer Lionel Shriver (she's a woman) competed to see who could get the most wasted on MDMA in the name of “making TV history.”
I've heard that studies have been done regarding the use of MDMA in psychology. Using it for treatment of PTSD and helping people with terminal diseases cope with end of like depression. Of course, I can't talk about any personal expirience as per forum rules. Here's the link to the web player for the show:
"Nearly half a million people are believed to take the Class A drug ecstasy every year in Britain and the country was dubbed the 'drug-taking capital of Europe' in a recent EU Drugs Agency report.
Now, in a UK television first, two live programmes will follow volunteers as they take MDMA, the pure form of ecstasy, as part of a ground-breaking scientific study."
If anyone watches it let me know how it turns out. In the meantime, any thoughts on the use of MDMA as a psychological aid or any other hallucinogens for that matter?
EDIT: Oh christ, the typo in the title. I wish I could fix that.
