MDMA - Methalinedioxymethamphetamine
Is MDMA the "safest" illegal drug you can take?

No. There is no such thing as a "safe" illegal drug. Illegal drugs are manufactured without any quality control. Hence, there is no way of knowing what goes into illegal drugs. MDMA (a.k.a. Ecstasy) is no exception to this rule. According to the Hong Kong Government Laboratory, Amphetamine Type Stimulant (ATS) tablets, like MDMA, are rarely made pure and are commonly adulterated with other substances (e.g. caffeine, phenobarbitone), including other illegal drugs (e.g. ketamine, methamphetamine). This presents a serious risk to uninformed users who usually end up consuming a mixture of drugs in one go. Occasionally, pills may even look like ATS tablets but contain no amphetamine in them whatsoever.

Drug misusers claim that ketamine is a "soft" drug and therefore safer to use. Are there such things as "soft" and "hard" drugs?

What do you think he meant by this?

As cannabis is legal in certain countries, such as the Netherlands, is it still a dangerous drug and can someone get addicted to it?
