Famous Ecstasy
Addicts & Users

Ecstasy is an illegal synthetic drug that acts as a hallucinogen and a stimulant, producing extreme time distortions, increased tactile experiences, and an overall boost of energy. Ecstasy is also known as MDMA, which is an acronym for its chemical name, and if often taken in pill form, with reported effects lasting between three and six hours.

Ecstasy alters the brain's neurotransmitters in relation to the chemical serotonin, which is responsible for mood regulation, aggression, sleep, and pain sensitivity. In high doses, the drug can interfere with the body's ability to regulate its internal temperature, and also releases large amounts of norepinephrine, leading to increased heart rate and blood pressure.

Ecstasy is considered a designer drug, and therefore is popular among many famous Hollywood types. Many say they use it to "loosen up" before a performance, as Eminem, the rapper, claims. He admits to taking half a pill before hitting the stage. Musician Sting has also admitted to using ecstasy, claiming that the drug enhances his post-age 40 lifestyle.

Britney Spear's first husband, Jason Alexander, claims that the songstress used capsules filled with pure MDMA to party at night. This constant partying, he claims, required additional stimulants and downers like cocaine and Valium to counteract the MDMA.


Britney Spears

More recently, singer/songwriter Miley Cyrus has admitted to enjoying the adverse effects of ecstasy, which she also calls "Molly", another street name for the drug. Often a hot topic of many of her songs, she has been linked to the drug during several concerts, including her 2013 VMA performance.

Actors like Jack Black and Angelina Jolie have also been reported to have experience with the drug, as well as director Quentin Tarnatino, who is reputed to have taken the drug during the filming of Kill Bill.
Actress and spokes model Anna Nicole Smith was reported to be on ecstasy when she gave her now infamous 2004 American Music Award speech, where she slurred her words and acted erratically.

History

In the 1970's some psychiatrists in the United States began using MDMA for medicinal therapy in patients, as they reported enhanced communication and the heightened awareness about one's own issues when using the drug. However, in 1985, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency banned the drug, saying it had no therapeutic value.

Ecstasy has been proven to be of an addictive nature, and is often linked to chronic drug abuse. In approximately 60% of reported cases of Ecstasy abuse, users experience withdrawal symptoms such as fatigue, loss of appetite, depression, and concentration issues. Ecstasy use has been linked to decreased cognitive abilities, including memory loss.

Ecstasy also has a hidden risk in that much of the drug found on the street is not pure. It is often laced with other substances, such as ephedrine, dextromethorphan, cocaine, or ketamine. These combinations can lead to other potential harmful effects, including death.
