Its initial foray into the world of medicine was cut short when people started using it recreationally, leading to it being banned as part of the War on Drugs. But doctors continued to campaign to be able to use it in medical research, and recent developments have shown the drugs potential for use in conjunction with psychological counselling to treat post-traumatic stress disorder, trauma and anxiety.

"I was addicted to the free feeling of being a child again. The feeling of not caring about what anyone thinks. The intense euphoria after feeling dead for years. Til this day I still have the urge to do ecstasy, but I do my best to stay away."
