During that time cocaine, morphine, and heroin, were developed and thought to be medical breakthroughs.
However, in the early 1900 s the bad effects of these drugs were showing effect. When scientists took drugs from things like plants and such the added stuff and tested them for positive effects. Most of the drugs that were created were never intended to be used by their selves, but made it easier to make other drugs by using these drugs like stepping stones. Despite the stories about ecstasy being used as a appetite suppressant, ecstasy was just created to make other drugs.
There are many different ways to take ecstasy; these are the most common ones: Eating the pill- this is the most common way. Swallow the pill like you take a aspirin. Parachuting the pill- when you crush up the pill wrap it in thin paper and swallow that. Railing the pill-this is when you crush up the pill and snort it up your nose. Smoking the pill- crush up and roll into a zigzag or any other roll and smoking it. Slamming the pill- inject the ecstasy directly into your blood-stream.
Plugging the pill- put on a rubber glove and put the pill on the tip of your finger, you now want to put your finger into your butt about to the second knuckle and it should get sucked up but you should lie on your stomach for awhile.
