Sorry to be a pedant, but you'll probably get a lot more relevant Google hits if you spell ecstasy correctly.

With every intention of being a pedant, may I point out that Google is actually pretty good at recognizing misspelled search terms, so using "extasy" will actually give you almost identical results to "ecstasy", not to mention asking you "did you mean "ecstasy""?. So yeah, you were clearly trying to be a pedant, i call BS.

Honestly, the wiki article probably isn't too bad, and is always a good place to find more technical sources.

I have a drug book here at the house...but honestly, Wiki does me more good.  My wife can read the drug book just fine...but a lot of what it says is over my head.  Wiki articles on drugs are usually pretty good.

Now, if this is for a report or something, I suggest not using Wiki for a source.  My daughter, for instance, is not allowed to use Wiki for a source.  So what I told her to do is read the Wiki article to get a grasp on the subject...then follow the citations to their sources and read those for more details.  You can cite the sources Wiki cites.
