Binghamton, NY (4/12/00) Use of MDMA, more commonly known on the streets as Ecstasy, has grown to epidemic proportions worldwide. As media reports have recently
suggested, Ecstasy is an illegal drug associated with the all-night dance parties
known as raves.  Ecstasy has rapidly become the drug of choice for hundreds of thousands, perhaps even millions of young people worldwide.  While users tout the drug promotes sensuality and love, hospital emergency room reports tell a tale of a much different sort with regard to Ecstasy, one involving psychological and organic complications, sometimes even death.

So just what is this drug that we have been hearing so much about on the news
lately?  Well, it's not cocaine, although people claim it makes them feel
invincible.  It's not alcohol, but some do report that it decreases their
inhibitions.  It's called Ecstasy, better known in the laboratories as
3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA), and it's the most popular drug on the
party scene today.  

The Love Drug: Marching to the Beat of Ecstasy, by Richard S.
Cohen, takes a sobering look at what has the nightlife in Tokyo, New York, and
London raving while medical professionals and civic officials the world over try to
raise a warning flag to a generation raving down the road of nonstop dancing, drug ingesting, and music.

This book takes a stunning look at this wildly popular mood-altering substance and
presents the reader with accurate information concerning the entire history as well
as current use of what's called "the love drug", Ecstasy.

This book discusses the medical and social implications of Ecstasy from an un-biased
viewpoint. Instead of preaching the evils or singing the praises of Ecstasy, Cohen
presents raw facts side-by-side with real-life experiences, allowing readers to draw
their own conclusions and make informed choices about this drug. As a responsible
professional, however, he does recommend that people exercise extreme caution when
contemplating whether or not to experiment with the underground drug market,
including Ecstasy.

Richard S. Cohen, MA, MSW.  Mr. Cohen has
appeared on various television segments to discuss his book and the drug Ecstasy.
His most recent appearances have been on 'Good Day New York' in New York City.  He
also appeared on 'Sunday Live with Wally Kennedy' on ABC in Philadelphia.  Richard
Cohen was also interviewed as part of a Fox television special that appeared
nationally with regard to both raves and Ecstasy use.

The Love Drug: Marching to the Beat of Ecstasy is available in stores now. Richard
S. Cohen is available for interviews via telephone or nationwide by arrangement. For
