Drugging Our Soldiers With Ecstasy

Did you know that American soldiers traumatized by fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan are to be offered the drug Ecstasy to help free them of flashbacks and recurring nightmares?

It's true! The US Food and Drug Administration has given the go-ahead for the soldiers to be included in an experiment to see if MDMA, the active ingredient in Ecstasy, can treat post-traumatic stress disorder.

Scientists behind the study in South Carolina think the feelings of emotional closeness reported by those taking the drug could help the soldiers talk about their experiences to therapists.

Several victims of rape and sexual abuse with post-traumatic stress disorder, for whom existing treatments are ineffective, have been given MDMA since the research began last year.

Michael Mithoefer, the psychiatrist leading the trial, said: "It's looking very promising. It's too early to draw any conclusions but in these treatment-resistant people so far the results are encouraging."

Now, I don't know about you, but this is really bad. It would appear that the psychiatric industry is working real hard to get Ecstasy approved for medical use.

What many of you may not know is that in the early 1970's Ecstasy (MDMA) was actually used by therapists to assist in marriage counseling. That was until the government classified it as an illegal substance in the 80's.

As if that is not enough, how about a little deja vu? The South Carolina study marks a resurgence of interest in the use of controlled psychedelic and hallucinogenic drugs.

Several studies in the US are planned or are under way to investigate whether MDMA, LSD and psilocybin, the active ingredient in magic mushrooms, can treat conditions ranging from obsessive compulsive disorder to anxiety in terminal cancer patients.

Did you read that correctly? A RESURGENCE OF INTEREST! So they are trying to bring back the good ol' days!

The last thing our troops need is the drug Ecstasy!

You should make no mistake about it, there are powers out there trying real hard to make Ecstasy an OK drug to administer.

While we are all going about our daily lives, with our own individual worries and battles, an entire war is being waged against our society, right before our noses.

But just imagine this for a moment. Suppose our Ecstasy video had reached these soldiers a few years ago, before they enlisted.

Now imagine that over 70% of them made decisions not to use them. Do you think, that with the proper education, early enough, they would buy into agreeing to take this drug? Most likely not.

That is why Friends of Narconon is doing what we do. We need to reach the kids before they go out into the jungle of society and fall prey to vested interests who do nothing but profit from their legal drug pushing.

I mean-- think about it--if we act now, those future soldiers will be better equipped to handle the real battlefield--their home territory.

It really is a sad state of affairs when you think about it. These soldiers put their life on the line and come back to drug pushers.

While their phobias are no doubt real and of concern to them, there are better ways to handle this sort of thing. Drugging is not one of them.

Make sure to sponsor some schools. And realize, that when you do, you are reaching out to the future.

You are helping to change the minds of our future leaders and goal makers. In this way we can work together to create a drug-free society.

Robert Hernandez
President of Friends of Narconon

PS: To sponsor schools in your area call Donna at 800-882-6862. It only costs 200.00 to sponsor a school. When you realize that just one sponsorship will reach thousands of students with the truth about drugs, you can see it will make a difference down the road. I don't know about you, but I strongly object to drugging of anyone, let alone our brave soldiers! (Medical emergencies aside.)
