Legal MDMA could soon be a thing
Don’t go thinking that ecstasy bought on the streets is good for you though, laboratory studies have shown that only pure MDMA has been proven sufficiently safe for human consumption when taken a limited number of times in moderate doses.
After extensive research, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has now confirmed it’s planning to launch Phase 3 clinical trials, using MDMA to treat PTSD sufferers, and may eventually make ecstasy an approved prescription medication. Phase 3 will involve 200-400 subjects from all sorts of causes across the U.S., Canada, and a lot of different countries. Phase 3 starts around 2017, and it will take four to five years to finish. So that will put it at early 2021 for FDA approval.
