Conference and webcast: The State of Ecstasy: The Medicine, Science and Culture of MDMA
On Friday 2 February 2001 a one-day conference is being held in San Francisco on The State of Ecstasy: The Medicine, Science and Culture of MDMA. Experts will discuss clinical and therapeutic uses, scientific research into potential neurotoxicity, and the culture of Ecstasy, including recreational use and raves.
Speakers at the conference include Alexander and Ann Shulgin (on the history of MDMA as a therapeutic agent), Rick Doblin (of MAPS, on regulation and research), Dr George Ricaurte (on his latest research) and Emanuel Sferios (of Dancesafe, on harm reduction).
It sounds like a fascinating programme and, for those who can't make it to San Francisco, it is also being webcast throughout the day via RealAudio.
