Study: Ecstasy Doesn’t Harm Mental Performance

By: TopWireNews


While this isn’t really an article, it’s a great example of what it looks like when journalists and commentators push science aside because it challenges their biases and beliefs. If careful, methodologically innovative research is “going to give many the people the wrong idea about ecstasy,” then where do the right ideas come from?

There are just some things that don’t need to be reported. Although it is interesting research, I believe is this going to give many people the wrong idea about ecstasy. They may believe it is safe and is okay to do. This is a dangerous drug and researchers just needed to let the public think it is a very dangerous substance.
