More Severe Penalty for Selling EcstasyOn March 21, 2001, Diana Murphy, the chairperson of the United States Sentencing Commission, called for increased penalties for selling the hallucinogenic drug ecstasy. A popular drug at "raves," ecstasy use among teenagers and young adults has been on the rise in the past few years. In her report to the US Senate Caucus on International Narcotics Control, Murphy listed the dangers of ecstasy use and advocated more severe penalties for people who manufacture, import, or sell ecstasy. The new penalties will target people who traffic ecstasy, not those who use it.
