'''Methylenedioxymethamphetamine''' (commonly abbreviated MDMA), which is widely referred to as '''Ecstasy''', is a psychedelic drug that is illegal in the [[United States]]. It is considered to be an empathogenic-enactogen. It is usually taken in pill form, although it can also be insufflated.
The drug first achieved wide-spread popularity when a former seminary student, Michael Clegg, residing in Texas, was inspired by his first experience with the drug. He claimed that he had always wanted to know "the thoughts of God". At a time when the substance was unscheduled and unregulated, he began giving the drug away for free, but started selling it when the cost of production became "prohibitively expensive". <ref>[http://video.google.com/googleplayer.swfvideoplay?docid=-1564288654365150131&autoPlayhl=true&playerMode=embeden-GB Link to Google Video] of '''Ecstasy Rising''' by Peter Jennings</ref>
Recently, the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) has received FDA-approval for research into the possible benefits of MDMA in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder. The results thus far have been uniquely promising. <ref>[http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/11/20/AR2007112001777_pf.htmlThe Peace Drug]</ref>
