It’s been well documented so far that PTSD can take too long to treat through traditional talk-therapy and that anti-depressants and anti-anxiety meds only ease symptoms instead of treating the patient. Therefore, growing research supports the streamlined approach that responsible use LSD, MDMA, and other psychedelics can be the key to curing many individuals that suffer from ailments such as PTSD (as many as 5 million people who suffer from the effects of emotional trauma).

But would therapeutic use of MDMA or Ecstasy provide a good defense to person facing criminal drug charges?

The answer: Maybe.

A person is not guilty of possessing MDMA or Ecstasy if they had a valid, written prescription for that substance from a physician, dentist, podiatrist, naturopathic doctor, or veterinarian licensed to practice in California.

What that means is that if someone is an experimental patient treated for afflictions like PTSD, then they may very well have a valid defense to possessing MDMA, Ecstasy, or Molly. Patients, such as those mentioned in a new book, “Acid Test, by Tom Schroder, have a valid medical excuse from prosecution.

With more scientific evidence covering therapeutic benefits of psychedelics, there may very well be a possibility that more people charged with possessing Ecstasy could find solid defenses similar to Marijuana possession and distribution.
