U.S. Soldiers Taking Ecstasy

Hear about it here on Democracy Now later today:

U.S. Soldiers to Be Given Ecstasy

Back in this country, the Food and Drug Administration has given the go-ahead for soldiers traumatized by their time in Iraq and Afghanistan to be offered the party drug ecstasy to help free them of flashbacks and recurring nightmares. The soldiers would take the drug as part of an experiment to see if MDMA, the active ingredient in ecstasy, can treat post-traumatic stress disorder.

New advert for the Army shall read:

Join the Army today! So you can get high tomorrow!

Or it will be the converse, an advert for Ecstasy:

Be all that you can be, by taking Ecs-tA-Sy!

Which do you prefer?
