but I am not one to be controlled.
(World’s Greatest Book of Useless Information)
The FDA recently allowed clinical trials exploring the effectiveness of ecstasy on treating veterans with PTSD. Because ecstasy increases the release of the hormone oxytocin, which promotes trust and social closeness, some psychologists believe it is ideal to give to military personnel, who are often reluctant to discuss their feelings.
A former Army Ranger who participated in the trial and was cured of PTSD agrees: “I think it’s especially helpful for soldiers, or someone who comes from a hard or tough background, because this is just the opposite.”
While there is now a chance ecstasy will be approved to treat PTSD, it won’t be available on anything other than an in-patient, strictly supervised basis. So, for all the ravers, there is no point in concocting tales of unspeakable traumas just yet.
