Facing Charges? Retain a Knowledgeable Drug Crime Lawyer
Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) is the much less popular name for ecstasy, which has been shorted even more so to the drug known as E. Taking ecstasy may cause damage to the individual’s heart, muscles, and soft tissues, even when used in extreme moderation. While some people may consider it a “party substance” and use it solely for recreation, the dangerous nature of the drug has caused it to become illegal in all states, punishable by federal law.

What sort of punishments are there for ecstasy offenses?
In its history, the severity of ecstasy possession, distribution, and manufacturing offense punishments has varied. Until 1985, it wasn’t even explicitly outlawed in the United States. If you aren’t up to speed on current drug laws, you might not know what sort of fines and jail time to expect, should you be found guilty of your charges.
Ecstasy is now considered to be a Schedule 1 drug in the United States. Substances considered to be Schedule 1 are given certain characteristics, defined as:
- No recognized medical use or benefit.
- Abusive or addictive in nature.
- Cannot be considered safe to use, even with medical supervision.
- Subject to strictest federal and state laws.
Ecstasy possession is not to be taken lightly. Ecstasy charges are typically more punishing than those found in cocaine-related cases.
