This thesis is a review of the ecstasy and methamphetamine epidemics. It attempts to discern the differences between the two drug epidemics and compare the possible reasons why the ecstasy epidemic was somewhat limited while methamphetamine use continues to be a growing concern in many areas. Evidence for the epidemics, as well as the responses to the epidemics, will be discussed. This will include responses from local, state and federal government, communities, and the media. Prevention programs and treatment will also be addressed.
