Alexander Shulgin, June 17, 1925- June 2, 2014

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Father of MDMA.
“I, as a responsible adult human being, will never concede the power to anyone to regulate my choice of what I put into my body, or where I go with my mind. From the skin inwards is my jurisdiction, is it not? I choose what may or may not cross that border. Here I am the customs agent. I am the coastguard. I am the sole legal and spiritual government of this territory, and only the laws I choose to enact within myself are applicable”
Alexander Shulgin, 1996 (i think...)

i'm part way thru the Vice article, very good, if you like chemistry.

I believe the drug is now being used in controlled doses to treat post traumatic stress, thus freeing a lot of people, especially deeply disturbed military personnel back from the front lines. There is also talk of treating manic depression with MDMA. And let's face it - not many alcoholics, if any, reach the age of 88. RIP.
