Scientists at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine have retracted a second study linking the drug Ecstasy to a certain type of brain damage - because once again, the wrong drug was given to lab animals. Dr. Una D. McCann, a neuroscientist involved in both experiments, said a letter of retraction was sent yesterday to a medical journal, which she declined to identify until editors there decide how to handle the matter. Scientists discovered the mistake after they checked lab records to see if methamphetamine - a variety of "speed" - from a mislabeled vial used in the first experiment had been used elsewhere.

The deaths of two young men at a music festival in Howard County's Merriweather Post Pavilion Friday has prompted an investigation into whether security and screening procedures there were adequate to protect concertgoers. Officials suspect many in the audience may have been under the influence of the drug Ecstasy or "Molly," which produces a mild euphoria in users but which also has been linked to several deaths at similar events around the country. Whether Ecstasy played a role in last weekend's tragedy is unclear, but it certainly wouldn't be surprising if it turns out audience members had relatively easy access to it despite the best efforts of concert organizers and police.
