A party drug is finding a new friend at the Department of Veterans Affairs. Psychiatrists are suggesting that ecstasy has been helpful to treat veterans suffering from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Apparently ecstasy produces a feeling that inhibits the fear triggered by an emotional threat. Rave-goers and X users say it produces an intimate feeling of euphoria. Clinical trials are being sponsored to study the risk/reward of using ecstasy to treat PTSD. It seems that volunteers to study the effects of "Lover's Speed" on their traumatic stress are pretty easy to find.
