MDMA is a drug that alters the mind and is on the list of illegal drugs in the United States.

In the United States, ecstasy is on the list as a “schedule one” drug, which makes it illegal.

Translational Medicine detailing the findings of a study they conducted in mice.

“The brain’s reward circuitry tells us something is good for our survival and propagation.

It evolved to tell us food is good when we’re hungry, water is good when we’re thirsty,

and warmth is good when we’re cold. For most of us, hanging out with friends is fun because,

over the course of our evolution, it’s promoted our survival,” explains Dr. Malenka.

However, there are still concerns regarding the drug nature as it might lead to addiction.

Therefore, scientists now are making sure that it will be safe when testing on humans.
