It's a big week for fans of MDMA (also known as the main ingredient in 'ecstasy') following the implementation of the first free drug-testing boots set up in nightclubs in Lancashire, UK and news that the drug is now one step closer to become a legal, prescription-based treatment for PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) in the United States.

The party drug known to reduce inhibition and cause the user to become more affectionate and energetic has been approved in phase-three trials by the Food and Drug Administration in the United States at this stage.

Treatment reportedly includes the patient taking the substance at the start of an extended therapy session under the supervision of two qualified professionals. Undertaken once a month, the drug is said to allow the patient to be more expressive and open to their emotions. 

Is MDMA about to be legalised?
