    Reminds me, what’s the status of therapeutic MDMA as an option for treatment of trauma?

    Bert Potter got busted for MDMA for ‘therapeutic’ use. There is a stigma problem there, but maybe not quite what you are referring to.

    Reminds me, what’s the status of therapeutic MDMA as an option for treatment of trauma? I seem to recall clinical trials on the subject.

    In New Zealand? Researchers at Auckland and Otago Universities announced they would be expanding a study of the use of MDMA to treat tinnitus a couple of years ago, but I'm not sure where they're at now.

    The interesting thing is that the idea came from patients – clubbers who told Audiology staff that their tinnitus symptoms eased when they were on one.

  • Craig Young,

    MDMA's just asking to be reclassified. It can be handled safely with proper harm minimisation and risk reduction.
