Stimulants: Mdma (ecstasy) is chemically related to speed, although people often think of it as a hallucinogen.They r all addictive & r bad 4 your heart, among other things. In addition, you have no way of knowing what else these drugs are "cut" with. Often ecstasy & other designer drugs are made in someone's home lab. If there is one wrong molecule from the last batch, no way to know what bad effect may be.

Bad for body, mind: Using these drugs can cause serious complications at any age, but as we get older, the risk of complications increases and they become more severe. It could cause heart problems (even cause a heart attack) and/or brain damage (such as memory or behavior problems) by altering nerve function, sometimes with permanent effects.

Cocaine weekly can: Cause changes in a person's brain which do not disappear even after they stop using the drug. It is highly addictive and hard to stop using. Mdma is also a dangerous drug. I worked with someone whose son used it once and became a vegetable for life. Drug dealers often add other drugs and you could sustain serious brain damage. See a therapist who specializes in the treatment of addictions.
