Study: [MDMA] could be far less dangerous than past research suggests

In its pure form, however, MDMA is not only a relatively safe drug, but also one that could provide surprising mental health benefits.

In a 2018 paper, researchers describe how American veterans and first-responders who suffered from PTSD showed improved conditions after undergoing MDMA-assisted psychotherapy over a long-term period. The results encouraged the Food and Drug Administration to approve Phase 3 trials for the treatment, which are scheduled to begin this year.
