Doctors from London University have revealed details of what they believe is the largest amount of ecstasy ever consumed by a single person.How long do you think it'll take the anti-drug zealot's to cite this as a testament to the evils of recreational drugs? This guy took 25 does of Extacy a day and lived! The fact that this guy can function at all suggests this stuff isn't terribly dangerous. Just about anything in your medicine cabinet would kill you if you ingested that much of it.
Though the man, who is now 37, stopped taking the drug seven years ago, he still suffers from severe physical and mental health side-effects, including extreme memory problems, paranoia, hallucinations and depression. He also suffers from painful muscle rigidity around his neck and jaw which often prevents him from opening his mouth.
