and a Cause for Concern: Ecstasy
By BM1(SW) J. Berrios
Navy Drug Resource Center
MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NWS) There is an alarming increase in
ecstasy abuse in America and a slight increase in the Navy. Ecstasy
is an illegal drug that is harmful and detectable by Navy drug screening
labs. It is an amphetamine based drug with hallucinogenic properties.
One of the best ways to combat illicit drug use by Sailors is to
stay informed and keep them informed. All commands are encouraged
to provide additional training on this subject at the earliest opportunity.
A web site has been established to provide awareness training on
Ecstasy. The web site is available at http://navdweb.spawar.navy.mil/.
