    The Palestinian Authority (PA) Security Forces have been revealed to be actively policing in Arab suburbs of the capital city of Jerusalem, in a region classified as Area B in the 1994 Oslo Accords. The Palestinian Wafa news agency reported on Thursday that the PA's Al-Quds (Jerusalem) suburb police were active in Eizariya, a neighborhood located east of Abu Dis between Jerusalem and Ma'ale Adumim. In the suburb, the PA force seized illegal drugs, consisting of 55 pills of Ecstasy (MDMA) as well as other drugs including crystal meth and hashish. The myriad of regions in Judea and Samaria classified...
  • What’s Really in Street-Bought Molly?

    New York Magazine ^ | March 12, 2015
    At Wesleyan University on February 22, 11 students were sickened by psychoactive drugs sold as “molly” — the vernacular name for 3,4-methylenedioxy-methamphetamine, abbreviated MDMA. The powder in question, according to police, contained a mix of other chemicals, and four students have been arrested in the case. No buyer of molly knows exactly what he or she is getting, of course. But there are ways to find out, and New York arranged to test several samples obtained in the city over the past year. Home-test kits, sold through dancesafe.org, involve placing a couple of drops of dye on a few grains...

    Police in Maryland have charged three people in connection with manufacturing MDMA, commonly referred to as Molly or the drug ecstasy, including a doctor who has a long-standing history of drug problems. Baltimore County cops said a drug investigation led to a search warrant and the arrest of Dr. Priscilla Sheldon-Cost, 51, at a house in Towson. Detectives found chemicals that can be used to manufacture MDMA and ecstasy were being created in a lab in the basement. Some of the substances that were found had even been labelled with MDMA written on it. 'They found chemicals that, when mixed,...

    BBC News ^ | 3 June 2014 Last updated at 08:51 ET | By Michelle Roberts Health editor, BBC News online
    Alexander Shulgin earned his nickname, the Godfather of ecstasy, after honing a way to make the drug - and testing it out on himself to check it had worked. A Facebook post by his wife and research partner, Ann, said he died "surrounded by family and caretakers and Buddhist meditation music". He lived out his final years at his home in Northern California. Shulgin began his study of organic chemistry at Harvard University in his teens and, after a stint in the US Navy during World War Two, returned to Berkeley to get his PhD in biochemistry at the University...

    Dale doesn't exactly look like an international crypto-criminal. He's soft-spoken, baby-faced, and a senior at an Ivy League college. But every couple of weeks the political science major logs onto the Silk Road, an online black market that has been described as an "amazon.com of drugs" to buy wholesale quantities of "molly" (also known as MDMA, a particularly "pure" form of ecstasy), LSD and magic mushrooms. Some of these will be for his personal use, and the rest he'll flog to less tech-savvy classmates at a mark-up of up to 300%. On a good weekend, he can net a profit...

    Justin Bieber's rapper pal Lil Za has accused reporters of racial discrimination by exaggerating his drug possession arrest to make him "look bad". The 19 year old was taken into custody on Tuesday following a police raid on Bieber's Calabasas, California mansion in connection to an alleged neighbourhood vandalism incident. Cops claim to have discovered illegal substances in "plain view" during the property search and arrested Lil Za on suspicion of felony drug possession. The white powder allegedly found was determined to be MDMA, a form of ecstasy frequently referred to as molly, but the teenager, real name Xavier Smith,...

    Forty-odd (exceedingly odd, I might add) years ago, who would have envisioned a national war against drugs? Nobody took drugs -- nobody you knew, nobody but jazz musicians and funny foreign folk. Then, after a while, it came to seem that everybody did. Drugs became a new front in the war on an old social culture that was taking hard licks aplenty in those days. I still don't understand why people take drugs. Can't they just pour themselves a nice shot of bourbon? On the other hand, as Gary S. Becker and Kevin M. Murphy argue, in a lucid piece...

    The DEA Web pages on "Speaking Out Against Drug Legalization" are linked with some regularity on FR.

Claim 3: "Illegal drugs are illegal because they are harmful." Fact: The legal drugs alcohol and tobacco are legal despite being harmful. Claim: Drug use can be deadly, far more deadly than alcohol.

    A Victorian couple who gave their 10-week-old baby an ecstasy tablet have walked away from court with suspended prison sentences. The couple, who can not be named under Queensland law, pleaded guilty in Cairns Supreme Court on Thursday to charges of grievous bodily harm and drug possession. Prosecutor Jodie Woodridge told the court the baby girl's mother, now aged 23, had hidden the drug among the infant's reflux medication when they travelled to north Queensland in December 2008 to holiday with her brother. Ms Woodridge said the drug remained with the baby's medication throughout their stay, creating a "Russian roulette"...

    PALMVIEW - Police say a traffic stop yielded everything from prescription pills to ecstacy pills. Police stopped a car driven by 22-year-old Mario Guadalupe Saenz on Monday. Inside they found black tar heroin, xanax pills, cocaine, marijuana and several ecstasy pills. The ecstasy caused some concerns, because it was brightly colored and made to look like popular cartoon characters like Homer and Bart Simpson, The Smurfs, and even President Barack Obama. "It's very unusual cause of the way the ecstasy are being shaped and the way they're colorful. It looks like a vitamin for kids," says Lenny Sanchez of the...
  • Drugs chief: Alcohol more dangerous than ecstasy, LSD and cannabis

    The British Government's chief drug adviser has sparked controversy by claiming ecstasy, LSD and cannabis are less dangerous than cigarettes and alcohol. Professor David Nutt, chairman of the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs, attacked the decision to make cannabis a class B drug. He accused former home secretary Jacqui Smith, who reclassified the drug, of "distorting and devaluing" scientific research. Prof Nutt said smoking cannabis created only a "relatively small risk" of psychotic illness. And he claimed advocates of moving ecstasy into class B from class A had "won the intellectual argument". All drugs, including alcohol and tobacco,...

    Taking ecstasy is no more dangerous than riding a horse, according to the head of the Government's drug advisory body. Writing in an academic journal, Professor David Nutt said taking ecstasy was no worse than the risks of "equasy", a term he invented to describe people's addiction to horse-riding. Prof Nutt is the chairman of the Home Office's Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs which next week is likely to say that ecstasy should be downgraded to a Class B drug. Campaigners last night called for him to resign, suggesting that he was on a "personal crusade" to decriminalise...

    OTTAWA — Canada is one of the top three world suppliers of the psychedelic drug ecstasy, and a significant supplier of marijuana to the United States, the government admitted on Friday. A survey of organized crime by Criminal Intelligence Services Canada found that Canada, the Netherlands and Belgium were the primary sources of ecstasy, an illegal drug that's popular at clubs, raves and rock concerts. "Canada continues to be a major producer for both domestic and international markets, exporting significant quantities primarily to the U.S. and to a lesser extent, Japan, Australia and New Zealand," the report said.

    JAKARTA: Five Chinese nationals, a Dutchman and a Frenchman who appealed against the length of their convictions on drug charges were instead sentenced to death, Indonesia’s Supreme Court said on yesterday. A court spokesman said two Indonesians previously sentenced to death in the operation had their sentences upheld. Supreme Court spokesman Joko Sarwoko said the judges hearing an appeal on Tuesday described the drug operation as an act of international organised crime. “They are experts in ecstasy production,” he said. “The court decided to increase the sentence to death penalty.” Dutch national Nicolaas Garnick, 61, and 43-year-old Frenchman Serge Areski...
