Sure, after reading this article describing the growing prevalence of ecstasy in the Yay Area, it's obvious that the word is being used to describe the drug MDMA, or Thizz.

But what if it wasn't? What if the news item was really using the word ecstasy as it's meant for hundreds of years...

15-year-old Tyiesha Farr of Richmond said ecstasy gave her a rush: "Whoo - it was fun!" she said. "I'm not going to lie, it was fun."

...Oakland Police said they have been seeing more homicides related to ecstasy.

"A lot of our homicides, if you talk to the suspects, a lot of them are under the influence of ecstasy when they're committing these crimes..."

...[T]he May 19, 2007 shooting of Oakland officer Kevin McDonald is one of many examples where the suspect admitted to...ecstasy.
