What is MDMA? Where did MDMA come from?
Weather you agree or not, MDMA is that big elephant in the room no one wants to look at or talk to. The Molly Topic makes EDM festivals shiver in their boots, and the rest of the EDM industry wanting to look the other way.
MDMA The Movie will explore the history and cultural impact of this unique drug called MDMA, and how ecstasy became the worlds favorite drug. Highlighting its medical role in the treatment of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and exploring harm reduction as a practical alternative to three decades of failed efforts at prohibition. The first ever feature film exploring MDMA’s history, its use in therapy, and harm reduction. DanceSafe neither condones nor condemns drug use. Rather, Provide a non-judgmental perspective to help support people who use drugs in making informed decisions about their health and safety.
DanceSafe is a 501(c)(3) public health organization promoting health and safety within the nightlife and electronic music community. Founded in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1998 by Emanuel Sferios, DanceSafe quickly grew into a national organization with chapters in cities across North America.
DanceSafe has two fundamental operating principles: harm reduction and peer-based, popular education. Known for bringing adulterant screening (a.k.a., “pill testing,” “drug checking”) to the rave and nightlife community in the U.S., and for distributing unbiased educational literature describing the effects and risks associated with the use of various drugs. DanceSafe also started the only publicly accessible laboratory analysis program for ecstasy in North America, currently hosted and managed by Erowid at EcstasyData.org.
The Key Issue: Don’t Incarcerate, Educate!
This method of drug education and drug prevention has proven beneficial, instead of incarcerating citizens, This saves tax payers hundreds of thousands of dollars a year that would otherwise go to paying room and board for a state or federal prisoner, DanceSafe is working hard to educate the public about the issues of current drug problems today.
The Truth About MDMA
MDMA Used As An Effective Treatment for PTSD
Used legally for almost a decade by psychiatrists and therapists, MDMA was a medicine before it was banned in 1985. Current FDA-approved studies using MDMA to treat PTSD have had impressive results. In the US Phase 2 studies, 83% of the subjects no longer met the criteria for PTSD at their two month follow-up. We tell the stories of some Iraq and Afghanistan veterans who participated in these studies. Watch some of their incredible testimony in our first short film below!
