Expert: Ecstasy more dangerous than many think
Rochester, N.Y. The two deaths at a music festival in New York City over the weekend is highlighting the increasing the danger of Ecstasy, or MDMA.
One of the two, Jeffrey Russ, 23, grew up in Greece.
Dr. Michael McGrath, medical director of Unity Behavioral Health, says what makes Ecstasy so dangerous is that it might not be Ecstasy.
Its not FDA-approved so we dont know what youre getting, youre getting this stuff from a drug pusher so you really dont know what you dont know it could be bath salts, so really dont know what youre taking, McGrath said.
NBC News reported Wednesday the number of people heading to the emergency room after taking Ecstasy has doubled since 2004.
