Well, only the rich kids drop E. These are certainly nice, mellow,
floaty kids who hug a lot. The underdogs however do crack, crank,
crystal meth. These are not mellow drugs.

MDMA is certainly not innocuous, btw. Certainly not the right cure
for testosterone rage.

It seems that dance-induced hyperthermia alone might be insufficient
to explain MDMA-related deaths. The drug might fiddle with body
thermal control.
