Chemist Alexander Shulgin, popularizer of the drug Ecstasy, dies at 88. RIP

Alexander “Sasha” Shulgin, a chemist and psychopharmacologist who introduced the world to the drug MDMA — later called Ecstasy — while creating hundreds of other psychedelic drugs that ultimately provoked a harsh government crackdown, died June 2 at his home in Lafayette, Calif. He was 88.

His death was announced by his wife and research partner of 35 years, Ann Shulgin. He had been in declining health since a stroke in 2010 and had a recent diagnosis of liver cancer.

Awwww man...This is sad news.

I had some truly amazing and completely joyous experiences that I have to thank Sasha for. What a brilliant and amazing person. R.I.P.

a wonderful movie about Sasha , Rest in Peace..[Shulgin_Movie]

Dirty Pictures follows underground hero and chemist Sasha and his wife, Ann Shulgin, as they travel to festivals and conferences to discuss the psychological qualities of MDMA, or better known as Ecstasy. Sasha, who went to Harvard at the age of 15, has spent his life trying to figure out all of the different aspects of Ecstasy and just how it can affect the human psyche.
