Ecstasy or Methylene Dioximethamphetamine (MDMA) was first synthesized in Germany in
1898. This compound was first marketed as an appetite suppressant in 1914. A few years
later, in 1941 this drug was used in a research to treat Parkinsons disease.
However, the subject withdrew because it was causing the subjects muscles to
stiffened. At about the same time, this drug was discontinued as an appetite suppressant
because of strange side effects. In 1972, therapist in the United States used the drug to
reduced hostility in marriage counseling sessions. Unfortunately, participants were
abusing the drug heavily. In 1985, the use of this drug in marriage counseling was banned.
Because of the widespread used and abused of
MDMA, the federal government have placed
it as a controlled substance and designated as Class A which carries stiffest penalties
and Schedule 1 drug in which only a licensed physician may prescribed the drug.
