Like other so-called "recreational drugs", it is banned on safety grounds (they are toxins, after all), although the problem is that their attraction and illegality make their supply tempting for criminals. ecstasy suppresses the body's normal symptoms of exhaustion and dehydration, and deaths attributed to the drug are by a combination of those rather than by direct poisoning.

In UK law the offence carries for

Group A: Crack cocaine, cocaine, ecstasy (MDMA), heroin, LSD, magic mushrooms, methadone, methamphetamine (crystal meth) Up to 7 years in prison, an unlimited fine or both Up to life in prison, an unlimited fine or both
