MDMA (‘ecstasy’)

A review of its harms and classification under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971
01 February 2008

Due to its prevalence of use, MDMA is a significant public health issue. The Council believes that criminal justice measures will only have limited effect and strongly advises the promulgation of public health messages. It is of vital importance that issues of classification do not detract from messages concerning public health.
