For the purpose of this PA, the term MDMA is defined as 3,4-
methylenedioxymethamphetamine and its very close structural analogues, such
as p-methoxyamphetamine (PMA), p-methoxymethamphetamine (PMMA), and 3,4-
methylenedioxy-N-ethyl-amphetamine (MDEA), insofar as they share specific
subjective, discriminative stimulus, or toxicological properties with 3,4-
methylenedioxymethamphetamine; however, methamphetamine and other
amphetamines that are characterized by neurotoxic effects on central
dopaminergic systems in experimental animals are not included in this
definition. Ecstasy is defined as a preparation (usually a tablet)
supposed by its users to contain MDMA.
