Los Angeles County PSA: Take Ecstasy Safely

A Los Angeles County public service announcement (PSA) has warned ecstasy users to take the illicit drug safely. An ongoing campaign has been launched complete with leaflets and fliers geared at providing attendees of rave dance parties held at the Los Angeles Coliseum information regarding safe dosing guidelines for ecstasy or MDMA, a Schedule I narcotic per the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.

Officials intend to distribute the fliers, titled "Buzz Kill: LA County Wants You To Take Ecstasy Safely" at upcoming events. The PSA has been criticized as a "backhanded endorsement of the drug" by many but the County is hoping to prevent ecstasy related deaths.
