A review of MDMA (‘ecstasy’), its harms and classification under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 (2009).

The Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs (ACMD) considers that a review of MDMA would be timely given:

  • the further information available on current use

  • the length of time since the ACMD last provided advice to ministers
