historical background
MDMA was developed before WWI with a patent issued to a German company in 1914.

In the mid-60’s the parent drug of ecstasy surfaced in the underground drug market.

The search for a legal analog led to MDMA, which remained legal until 1985

Historical Background
how mdma is taken
MDMA comes in the form of a white, crystalline powder which can be buffered and pressed into pills.

The usual dose is 1 to 2 mg/kg body weight (125 to 180 mg).

It may be ingested orally, placed under the tongue, added to juice or a carbonated beverage, or snorted.

How MDMA is taken
mechanism of action
In the brain, MDMA causes the

release of serotonin, one of the

chemicals that transmit signals from one

nerve to the next.

The release of serotonin, believed to

be responsible for its effects, occurs

unimpeded and causes a flooding of

the synapses, overwhelming the serotonin receptors and preventing its reabsorption.
