Ecstasy May Be Less Dangerous Than Once Thought

A new study has found that past research on the cognitive effects of ecstasy may have been flawed and overestimated the damage the drug does to users’ mental ability.

The study, funded by a $1.8 million grant from the National Institute on Drug Abuse, found that ecstasy users showed no signs of mental impairment.

Saidstudy author John Halpern:

“Researchers have known for a long time that earlier studies of ecstasy use had problems that later studies should try to correct. When NIDA decided to fund this project, we saw an opportunity to design a better experiment and advance our knowledge of this drug.”

While this study found that ecstasy didn’t harm mental performance, Halpern warns that ecstasy still isn’t a safe drug to use:

“Ecstasy consumption is dangerous: illegally-made pills can contain harmful contaminants, there are no warning labels, there is no medical supervision, and in rare cases people are physically harmed and even die from overdosing. It is important for drug-abuse information to be accurate, and we hope our report will help upgrade public health messages. But while we found no ominous, concerning risks to cognitive performance, that is quite different from concluding that ecstasy use is ‘risk-free’."

There is a lot at stake in the ongoing dialogue about drugs!

Filed under: Legal MattersReality TV

Oh boy! The last thing the world needs is this one free to roam wherever she pleases!

Catya Washington of the Bad Girls Club: Miami and her classy ass are currently sitting in a jail cell for posession of not only a firearm, but cocaine, shrooms, and ecstasy, because she has yet to be able to post the $50,000 out of $500,000 she needs to be bailed out, but that could be changing very soon!

Apparently, her family has set up an on-line fundraiser to free the reality star, and they've already pulled together $20,000 in less than a week!

Wow! Too bad by the time they get enough money to free her, she'll be due back in court! Her date is set for November 22nd.

Might as well hold off on using that money for bail, bb! You're going to have a lot of court fees to pay!

LOLz!

And if that isn't enough Bad Girls drama for you, be sure to check out the Bad Girls Club: Miami reunion that we're hosting, on the Oxygen Network November 16th at 9pm ET/PT!

We PROMISE that it will NOT disappoint!

Drugs To Blame!

americas got talent auditioners wife found dead after drug related death

This is a truly terrible, sad story, which could have easily been avoided!

America's Got Talent auditioner Joe Finley's wife was found dead after falling eight floors to her death, following a night of heavy partying with drugs and alcohol.

Finley had reported his wife missing the morning before his audition.

Here's what Joe had to say about it:

"She was supposed to get us breakfast because I had to get up and get in line [to audition]. She didn’t come back so I just left and got in line and figured she was still out. I didn’t think anything of it."

More from Joe:

"We were partying, we took ecstasy, but it wasn't out of control. She was really happy, I was happy, we were excited about my music. I wrote her a poem. We went down to a jazz bar in the hotel and then took a tour of the hotel because apparently it's an historic place. We were having a great time."

So, so sad and completely avoidable! Had they partied more responsibly, this would never have happened.

Our thoughts are with Joe Finley and his family.

Was T.I. Sippin' On Gin & Juice Sizzurp The Night He Was Arrested?

Filed under: DrugsBusted!T.I.

tiwenn2314799.jpg

According to officials on the scene, it could be possible.

When T.I. was arrested earlier this month on possession of marijuana and ecstasy, he also had one other gem in the back seat - codeine syrup. Codeine happens to be the main (and sometimes the only) ingredient for sizzurp.

Along with finding the drug, police noticed that T.I. had several Styrofoam cups in is Maybach. Typically, sizzurp is best served in Styrofoam.

It all seems to add up, but the more it does, the more we think T.I. is going to get one hell of an extended stay in L.A County lockup.
