B.C. therapists to try ecstasy to treat trauma patients

Along the way, I heard that two Vancouver therapists were hoping to conduct a small study in treating post-traumatic stress disorders with limited doses of ecstacy. According to Andrew Feldmar, they’ve now received approval from Health Canada, as you can read in my story here.
