15 years of research on animals has proven that MDMA (ecstasy) damages specific neurons (basic building blocks in your brain) in the brain.

A Personal Account
“Ecstasy took my strength, my motivation, my dreams, my friends, my apartment, my money, and most of all, my sanity. I worry about my future and my health every day. I have many mountains ahead of me, but I plan to keep climbing because I’m one of the lucky ones.” --Lynn
