Long-term ecstasy users have higher levels of empathy than cannabis and other drug users, new research suggests. Scientists in England compared the empathy levels of 25 people who used multiple drugs including ecstasy, 19 people who used multiple drugs not including ecstasy and 23 people who used alcohol only. Users of ecstasy reported feeling much more empathy – and were better at identifying the emotions of others on a computer task – than people who took multiple drugs not including ecstasy.
