AlterNet: DrugReporter: Breaking the Drug Taboo: Group of Traumatized Veterans Get Experimental Ecstasy Treatment

AlterNet: DrugReporter: Breaking the Drug Taboo: Group of Traumatized Veterans Get Experimental Ecstasy Treatment

Indeed, out of all of the MDMA research underway, it seems to be Mithoefer's work, conducted in a warmly lit cottage in South Carolina with his wife and registered nurse Annie, that seems best positioned to aid MDMA's American crossover from a Schedule I danger to a FDA-approved wonder drug. But that's just the beginning of a long, bureaucratically tangled road to redemption. "Michael's study is the furthest along," added Doblin, "and after June, we'll do the data analysis and submit our findings to the FDA. After that, we will work with the FDA to come up with ideas about phase three studies, and that's when we have to spend the millions of dollars and treat hundreds of patients."
