Doctor takes bid to treat patient with MDMA to court…
Consultant psychiatrist Eli Kotler launched legal action after the Victorian Department of Health knocked back an application to treat the woman… with the drug more commonly known as ecstasy.
Kylie Evans, the barrister representing Victoria’s Health Department, told the court that the outcome of the case would be significant… the move will be opposed by the secretary of the Health Department, which knocked back the original application. “As far as we’re aware, this is the first such case that … will be heard in a court in Australia, seeking permission from the state to treat a patient with MDMA,” Ms Evans said… a decision is also expected in the same vein on psilocybin, which is the main compound in so-called magic mushrooms.
