Love Drug: Marching to the Beat of Ecstasy

Author(s): Richard S. Cohen

Health & Healing

In The Love Drug: Marching to the Beat of Ecstasy, you’ll follow the streak of popularity the compound MDMA, or “Ecstasy,” has left behind, all the way from its initial patent to its present-day use as a recreational substance at social gatherings—the all-night-to-early-morning parties known as “Raves.” Simple enough for the everyday reader and yet detailed enough for educators, researchers, and clinicians, this book gives you cutting-edge data about this curious and sometimes unpredictable chemical substance. You’ll also get a handle on the many future implications the drug may have in our society of scientists, legal officials, average citizens, and all-night partiers.

Put simply, no other publication will so concisely and clearly help you synthesize the structural significance, legal controversy, and adverse reactions surrounding Ecstasy as The Love Drug. Overall, its thought-provoking and informative treatment of the topic will give you a balanced, impartial view of Ecstasy’s past and present-day history. And on the other hand, it may also act as a pivotal deterrent if you’re someone who has experimented with this sometimes quixotic mind-altering substance. Specifically, its indepth examination will help you:

  • understand the complete synthesis of 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA), its patent, chemical configuration, and pharmacological action

  • see the connection of this chemical substance to its infamous, alluring moniker—Ecstasy

  • get an accurate synopsis of the full oral and written legal history of the drug

  • become familiar with the adverse reactions ascribed to Ecstasy use

  • understand the place of Ecstasy in the realm of psychotherapy

  • see how Ecstasy and the Rave movement perpetuate each other

    If you’re one of the many who have made all-night partying a science, The Love Drug will clear away the dogma and show you the many ways this drug could change your life. If you’re a preclinical researcher, educator, or member of an emergency room team, you’ll find this book a priceless source of contemporary information.
