The Queensland Productivity Commission has recently called for the legalisation of MDMA for recreational use in Australia.
The TGA is weighing up a proposal that would make it easier for doctors here to prescribe MDMA and psilocybin for therapeutic use.
Ten reasons why legal regulation of MDMA will be better for society and make ecstasy use safer.
The damaging effects of MDMA prohibition itself are even more concerning than that failure.
The harms caused by criminalisation and the poorly regulated illicit market far outweigh the social harms of MDMA use.
There is now ample evidence that shows the perceived dangerousness of MDMA doesn’t fit with the real risks.
To this day, there is no clear supporting evidence for the decision to prohibit MDMA in Australia.
There is too much at stake to allow people like Tony Wood to determine how we respond to the reality of illicit drug use.
