Report on Dangers of Ecstasy Retracted
In the "Emily Litella Never Mind" department:
A scientific study warning of great risks associated with ecstasy use has been retracted.
A report submitted for publication last year by the team conducting a study on Ecstasy at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine claimed that one night's use of ecstasy could result in permanent brain damage and symptoms resembling Parkinsons' Disease. Other scientists said hogwash, it would take massive doses of the drug to cause brain damage.
Turns out the scientists got their drugs mixed up. They hadn't injected ecstasy at all into the monkeys and baboons who were the test subjects, but d-methamphetamine.
