Speed and ecstasy can cause abnormal heart arrythmias which may lead to serious consequences. There has been instances resulting in death from the use of these drugs. I would strongly suggest refraining from use. If you need a substance to have a great time doing something is the activity worth it or worth the consequences? Best wishes!
