Bethesda—As the popularity of the drug ecstasy (MDMA) continues to climb—11% of high school seniors have tried it, according to a National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) survey—behavioral researchers are recommending control strategies that may seem antithetical to ever-expanding law enforcement efforts. Instead of focusing on eradication and punishment, these social scientists take another tack: they encourage harm reduction that acknowledges the realities of ecstasy.
