Dying with Ecstasy

The theraputic effect of the drug ecstasy (MDMA) is in the news again. I posted previously about how ecstasy is being used to help Iraq War veterans deal with post-traumatic stress disorder. The Bush Administration had no objections. Now, Harvard is researching the use of ecstasy to ease the anxiety of terminal cancer patients facing imminent death. But the Bush Administration objects to this research because it might "destigmatize a dangerous substance." Hey, don't blame me-- I voted Libertarian.

Harvard researchers are preparing for the first time in three decades to conduct human experiments using a psychedelic drug, a study that would seek to harness the mind-altering effects of the drug ecstasy to help ease the crushing psychic burdens faced by dying cancer patients. In the experiment, 12 terminal cancer patients would be given MDMA, the active ingredient in ecstasy, to determine whether the drug helps alleviate their anxiety. The experiment seeks to establish a medical use for a drug whose abuse has been on the rise among some young people, who use it recreationally for its euphoric effects. A small but growing group of scientists contends the drug, administered in a controlled medical setting, can improve mental and emotional health. But critics, including some in the Bush administration, said the experiment may destigmatize a dangerous substance. [read more]

In 1994 when my friend was dying, we kept him at home with the assistance of hospice who sent a nurse out every Friday to set up his meds. We set up his meds too - pot tea and during the last two days, ecstasy.

His death was a beautiful thing, very calm, loving and filled with peace. He fell into his final sleep surroinded by his friends, being gently massaged.

If we could only evolve into a truly compassionate society...however, with christians such as Bush at the helm, we will be doomed to continue our downward spiral of hate and class war.
