The Truth About Ecstasy

39786 ratings | 4598775 views
High Society is a new VICE documentary series about drugs in the UK. British people statistically take more MDMA in one session than any other country on the planet. And not just a little bit more: on average, Brits take 420 milligrams per session. To put that in perspective, Germans, the same people who invented minimal techno and nightclubs that stay open for 60 hours – take only 200 milligrams. It’s still one of the safest drugs to take, but last year, ecstasy-related deaths reached their highest level in a decade, and now it’s back in the headlines. Some people say it’s drug dealers’ responsibility for selling pills that are dangerously strong and cut with adulterants. Other people point to the government, who have failed to reduce the supply of ecstasy and are refusing to embrace harm reduction strategies that have worked in Europe. In this episode of High Society, we find out what’s making ecstasy so dangerous again, and how that danger can be reduced.

Why are you trying to figure out if there is a way to make it not dangerous? "It might be an illegal, but at least it's not dangerous."

Government agencies will never be mentally equipped to properly regulate this stuff because it takes a drug user to know the proper approach to such a thing.

I guess the real problem is that since it's illegal, there's no way to be sure if the drug is actually the real thing or something else.

I do not believe for one moment those pill makers were for real. They were producing 5000 pills and yet they look like they have no money whatsoever. I smell a prank.

Paracetamol is a pill and it can kill if you overdose on it, the exact same as ecstasy.

I bet those two women who search parcels for drugs drink alcohol every week. Not only that, but they're so stupid. "If we just get a gram on our fingers and then forget what we're doing and then ...yeah". Oh yeah course, you're just casually gonna have a whole gram of MDMA on your fingertip without noticing aren't you.

More clubs and festivals need to invest in drug testing stations. A hippie festival in Canada has a drug testing station. I think its great that they do have them but many more clubs need to take part. It wouldn't require that many resources and wouldn't cost the club that much more money and would help save lives.

10:39 is the key point in this video. If the government would realize that the rate people take MDMA is not slowing down no matter how many people die then they could save lives by making it safer and having pill testing labs. By Theresa May saying that it is the users own problem she is condeming people to death.

MDMA is not deadly it's the adulterants that can be deadly

Give the girls at UK 's Border Force 100mg each. Just so that they know what they're talking about and it's not your regular "I don't even want to hear about it, it's bad and deadly).
