 Forget armor: send glowsticks

The quagmire in Iraq is about to turn into a a giant rave:
American soldiers traumatised by fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan are to be offered the drug ecstasy to help free them of flashbacks and recurring nightmares.

The US food and drug administration has given the go-ahead for the soldiers to be included in an experiment to see if MDMA, the active ingredient in ecstasy, can treat post-traumatic stress disorder.

I wonder if this will help the Pentagon's falling recruitment levels? I can see it now: "Uncle Sam wants you... to DANCE! (cue the music)"
