I'm not sure it's ill-informed legislators. It's the drug companies who lobby to have these things criminalized so they can sell more of their own drugs.

At least, that seems probable.

The article is wrong. The study isn't the first of its kind. I took part in a study in 2004 at a university in Michigan (not U-M or MSU), which was an MDMA nap study, trying to gauge the effects of MDMA on sleep as well as thinking patterns using a bunch of different tests from word/memory games to analytical thought to how many times can you click this button with your index finger in a minute. Paid well. I think I was an outlier because I made the tester cackle, which she wasn't supposed to do and apologized saying she'd never broken character before.

Anyways, they were conducting a secondary test for either CAT or MRI scans, voluntary, and they really wanted me on it. But, I am minorly claustrophobic sober, and very claustrophobic when I wasn't. I refused the test.

I never found out the results of the test, and I haven't found a publication of it, though I've only cursorily looked.
