Ecstasy (in its purest form, MDMA) is a synthetic drug that induces both stimulant and hallucinogenic properties by increasing activity in neurotransmitters that control mood and emotion. It is a largely social drug, and there is a high rate of poly-drug experimentation associated with its use. Ecstasy is one of the most widespread, accessible, and thus, abused, drugs in the world.
