FDA Clinical Trials of Ecstasy

The Lord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?   Psalm 27:1

FDA Approves Large Scale Clinical Trials of Ecstasy to Treat Patients With PTSD

Ecstasy (MDMA) is a Class Schedule 1 drug in the US in the same category with heroin. It’s known as a “rave drug” which gives clubbers “a psychotic feeling of happiness.”

According to The National Institute on Drug Abuse –

https://www.drugabuse.gov/publications/research-reports/mdma-ecstasy-abuse/what-are-effects-mdma

– a single does can give a person decreased anxiety and a general feeling of well-being within an hour of taking one dose. That’s the good news.

Here’s the bad news:

MDMA can produce a variety of adverse health effects, including nausea, chills, sweating, involuntary teeth clenching, muscle cramping, and blurred vision.

It’s use is often associated with long periods of high physical activity. Here’s the problem with that:

MDMA can also reduce the pumping efficiency of the heart,6 of particular concern during periods of increased physical activity, further complicating these problems.

As if that isn’t enough, MDMA does not metabolize well. In other words, the body does not get rid of it easily.  It stays for some time.  Long enough that the chances of overdose are increased, worsening the toxic effects of the drug.

You’ve heard of the old saying “ignorance is bliss.” From the NIDA site, it seems that’s about how it works.

In the hours after taking the drug, MDMA produces significant reductions in mental abilities. These changes, particularly those affecting memory, can last for up to a week, and possibly longer in regular users. The fact that MDMA markedly impairs information processing emphasizes the potential dangers of performing complex or skilled activities, such as driving a car, while under the influence of this drug.

Over the course of a week following moderate use of the drug, many MDMA users report feeling a range of emotions, including anxiety, restlessness, irritability, and sadness that in some individuals can be as severe as true clinical depression.14 Similarly, elevated anxiety, impulsiveness, and aggression, as well as sleep disturbances, lack of appetite, and reduced interest in and pleasure from sex have been observed in regular MDMA users.

Sorry, but I’m not even at the article yet, so here we go. From the article:

The phase three trial, funded by the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS), will involve 230 patients or more…It has been banned since 1986, ranked as dangerous as LSD and heroin.

Well, my first question is just who the heck is Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies; MAPS to their friends and donors? I visited their website – http://www.maps.org/ and the very first thing I saw was a headline screaming the topic of research into MDMA, complete with pictures of WASP-ish individuals, all-American family type folks, and even a family with toddlers. There’s also a picture of some Woodstock-looking scene with a circle of people holding upraised hands.

A little something for everyone.

Farther down the home page is an equally large headline promoting their research into “LSD-Assisted Therapy.” You too can attend their Psychedelic Science 2017 conference in – where else? – Oakland, California.  Even the logo is in psychedelic rainbow colors.

Remember that LSD was the CIA’s drug of choice in their supposedly shuttered MKUltra program.

Also from my series on the book DNA: Pirates of the Sacred Spiral: https://jeffreyhking.wordpress.com/2016/08/28/pirates-of-the-sacred-spiral-part-8/

1940 – Having grown bolder as they continued their work in both genetics and evolution, “They crossed the line into science fiction when they claimed to show the Mendelian inheritance of traits such as feeblemindedness, pauperism, shyness, moral control, nomadism, and shiftlessness.” Page 77

Continuing from there, they publicly promoted the idea that those saddled with serious genetic defects should not be allowed to reproduce. In other words, forced sterilization.

As people began to realize that “serious genetic defects” might be a bit more arbitrary than at first blush, an uprising against eugenics began. They were pronounced guilty by association with the inhumane genetic “improvements” that were being pursued in fascist Europe. This is the year they finally had to officially close their Eugenics Record Office, although they continued their research “underground.”

To connect the dots here, the reference from the above quotation is regarding fairly open attempts at eugenics – essentially what the Nazis were doing – here in the United States of America. In fact, Hitler was heavily funded by the Rockefellers and the Bushes.  Yes, THOSE Bushes  The USA eugenics were aimed very pointedly at Negroes along with the mentally ill and criminal types.  The means were forced sterilization and drug treatments.  Addison’s disease was a research focus due to the tendency of sufferers to develop black skin pigmentation.  They were trying to “cure” society of Negros more than trying to help victims of Addison’s Disease.

Now we have drug research trying to find a way to “help” people with autism and PTSD. These certainly fit the profile of undesirables in a society envisioned by the Rockefellers, Carnegies, and Bushes.

To be a bit more succinct, if cliché, “I’m from the government, and I’m here to help you.”

I would encourage you to read the article for yourself and see what questions you might want to ask.
