Alexander Shulgin

Alexander Shulgin passed away today. He brought MDMA to the masses. I honestly think “E” is quite a different drug than any of the others. I think it really does help people.

“Born in California, he is credited with discovering and synthesising over 200 psychoactive drug compounds for psychedelic evaluation alongside his wife. Among these was MDMA, which is believed to have been originally synthesised by German pharmaceutical company Merck in 1912. Shulgin famously rediscovered the drug and was instrumental in bringing it to the attention of the wider world. Without him, dance music culture would be very different today.” – mixmag
