Researchers at Birmingham University in the UK have determined that ecstasy, if medicinally doctored to be made 100 times more effective, can be used to treat the likes of leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma. Of course, any drug that’s altered to be that much more potent would kill anyone, so a “safe version” of MDMA would have to be produced.

The benefits of ecstasy in treating white blood cell cancers have long been established, but the dosage remains the big question. With marijuana also a known chemotherapy aid, it’s only a matter of time before cocaine or acid’s cancer application is discovered.
