The Truth About Ecstasy

49216 ratings | 5356345 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.

Instead of testing for drug purity at festivals they should police raid them and arrest them. People would soon stop taking drugs.

There should be a loop stand on every street corner around Britain. Even if they charged £2 per test, it would be so worth it and save so many lives.

All so called drugs should be legal and regulated. It's in the damn constitution! Any man has the right to ingest the drug of his choosing. But they hold nothing else in it sacred why would that be any different.

People complaining about immigration......you are destroying your own society with your own hands. Rather than having stronger,harsher laws against drug use and drug distribution, you are setting up tents for people to test their drug potency lol. You are DIRECTLY encouraging drug use. If I know my drugs are "safe" I will take more of them.
ME911119 (8 days ago)
Its so sad that at 10:36 ...theyre solution to the problem is to introduce DRUG testing labs so that "users" can know what DRUGS they are taking. Why dont you just have SEVERELY hard punishment for the people that sell, or take these drugs. The punishment should act as a deterant. Also...why do you need to have these clubs and nightlife and festivals anyways? Do they really add anything to your society ? There are other ways to have fun. You can play sports..you can go fishing...you can hang out with your friends..play video games..go to the movies.....go to a restraunt. Why..why the "nightlife". It is sad how the west is destroying it self.

Out of all drugs I ever tried...EXTACY IS BY FAR MY FAVORITE...WHEN U GET GOOD PURE MDMA...ITS LIKE A FULL BODY ORGASM THAT LAST FOR 8 HOURS OR MORE THEN ONCE IT STARTS TO WEAR OFF...JUST A HALF TAB WILL TAKE U RIGHT BACK UP. But I definitely couldn't do it too often...the next day your body is completely drained from working in overdrive. The best part of ecstacy is everything is intensified. Something that is slightly cold feels ice cold, a simple back rub or some 1 running thier fingers thru ur hair feels absolutely amazing. Couples who are looking to rekindle their sex life should definitely give it a shot.

"It's a controlled drug because it's deadly." Imagine if it was just legalized and it was manufactured in a government-approved laboratory that requires people to properly label their dosages and ingredients. It's deadly because it's cut with other substances and nobody has a clue what potency their stuff is.

Jeepers! It's a simple answer and that's because England is a shit society ! The weather is shit , food is shit , system is set up for only a certain sector of society to exist! People take drugs to escape the realities of living in such a shit system ! And finally the English are somewhat off key !

Ecstacy is the crazied drug. I have not done it in a decade, but it opened my eyes all those years ago. I was much younger, but to all the people doing that shit nowadays, I think knowing what you are taking is key.

Best ways to reduce deaths from drugs that are currently illegal: 1. Allow drug testing sites to operate freely and openly, 24/7, without risk of arrest for the people who use them (which is the #1 reason people don't get their drugs tested right now), or at the very least create reliable, cheap testing kits for personal use. 2. Do something like Portugal did with such success: legalize every drug that is currently illegal, then create standards for what amounts of any active substances are contained in each (x) amount of any given drug so people will have an idea of what they're getting, and also create cheap and reliable methods of testing for what is in those drugs by the users. *Having safe places to exchange dirty needles for new ones without the risk of arrest to users will be helpful resources for preventing the transmission of illnesses like HIV and hepatitis, and if paired with safe places to shoot up that are staffed 24/7 with people trained in prevention and treatment of overdoses it will serve to further reduce the death rates of drug users. *Having addiction treatment and rehabilitation centers that work closely with and are located nearby safe places to shoot up could do a lot to help addicts who want to quit actually succeed at getting and staying clean.

I love how they claim to be the competition to the Dutch labs. So not true. The dutch labs are putting out tens of kilograms a day, and have pill presses that do more than one measly pill a minute. These guys are buying from Dutch gangs, likely unknowingly. They aren't the Dutch gangs' competition; they are the gangs' customers.

3:30 OF COURSE THEY COULD TELL YOU HOW MUCH DRUGS SLIPS THROUGH - It's simple statistics! You take out a sample of, lets say 1000 packs that represents the amount of packs per xx hours, check them through for drugs and then you will have an estimation for the amount of drugs that goes through per 1000 packs - Now you can take that figure and apply it to the amounts of packs of day and how much drugs they would contain. They just don't want to share the info, cos it's bad for their reputation... Fucking idiotic to even try and control drug traffic...

The truth about MDMA? I call bullshit on this.. From what David Nutt is saying, a professor in psychiatry who have studied and researched risks of taking a whole variety of drugs, including MDMA and compared them all, MDMA is less dangerous than riding a horse. This sounds more like a smear campaign against MDMA... YouTube or Google this: David Nutt interview MDMA horse riding
