Greater Victoria’s recreational drug users are in high demand for a new study being undertaken by the Centre for Addictions and Research of B.C.

Ecstasy and MDMA are just some of the party drugs the University of Victoria-based research group wants to examine in the coming months.

Party drug users must be at least 19 years old and have used drugs other than marijuana at least once a month for the past six months.

The identity of all participants will remain confidential and anonymous and participants will receive some financial compensation.
