User avatar Hi shanz,
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!
