MDMA, or Ecstasy as it is commonly called, is a schedule 1 narcotic. Though originally intended to be a therapeutic drug, it began being used in the 1980s in a recreational manner. Individuals found possessing, manufacturing, delivering, or trafficking Ecstasy in our state can face extremely serious penalties. Possession is considered a felony, and is punishable by up to 5 years in prison, though many "first-time" offenders are eligible for drug court. Manufacturing of Ecstasy, or delivery with intent to sell, is a second-degree felony that can be met with up to 15 years in prison. And the possession or sale of Ecstasy within 1000 feet of certain areas, such as schools and day care centers, can be met with a 3-year mandatory minimum prison sentence, and up to 30 years in prison in severe cases.
