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.

i did some fortnite ecstasy with silver glitter in it. i didn't get a body high but it had my eyes rolling super hard like waves hitting me i didn't really feel much of a body high but my ego dissolved and feeling of empathy increased and i felt good but sense of touch and my body didn't change just a head high. did i take real 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.
England have a bunch of drugs because they are UnGodly UnChristian immoral Lukewarm Colonizing hypocritical degenerates , wolf in sheeps clothing type of people. thats what their ppl and government have repeatedly shown this world. shame on them , shame on their gov. and queen and shame on how they think having an "empire" is anything good to humans... smh
