“Incidence of recreational use of 3,4-methylenedimethoxymethamphetamine (MDMA, 'ecstasy') on an undergraduate campus”. 
N Engl J Med. 1987;317(24):1542-3.
The present study attempted to determine the incidence of use of this compound at a university campus. Undergraduates at Stanford University were randomly and anonymously polled about the possible use of MDMA. The subjects were asked whether they had ever taken 'ecstasy' or 'MDMA.' Of a total of 369 subjects interviewed, 143 (39 percent) reported that they had used the drug at least once. The frequencv of use by the subjects ranged from 1 to 38 times. The median number was 4, and the mean was 5.4. The amount of drug taken in a single dose ranged from 60 to 250 mg (approximately 1 to 4 mg per kilogram of body weight).
