MDMA assisted psychotherapy

Psychedelic drugs, particularly MDMA, has been of particular interest as of late. MDMA, known as Ecstasy or Molly, has come to be known as a party or rave drug. However, it has root in legitimate psychotherapy. It used to be prescribed by psychiatrists until it was made illegal. MDMA has been the prime focus of a psychedelic organization called Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) who have been behind helping conduct scientific studies regarding the potential of MDMA to help with PTSD, depression and many other treatments with this medicine we have yet to discover. So far, some studies have shown that MDMA works for PTSD.

The Young Turks Politics reporter Michael Tracey interviews the executive director of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, Rick Doblin.
