ecstasy5Matt Noffs, the chief executive of the Ted Noffs Foundation and a spokesman for the Take Control Campaign for Safer, Saner Drug Laws, and Alex Wodak, the president of the Drug Law Reform Foundation, discuss the legalization of ecstasy. "People need time to think about it. Despite the breakthroughs, the politics of this is still fiercely difficult. But, on the other hand, let’s remember what’s important about this: it’s human life, the sacredness of human life and also the difficulty that young people have in the world today. Drug reform makes a material difference to young people – it’s about their future health and safety." (See also: Now that the ACT has given marijuana the green light, could (and should) MDMA be next?)
